Spinal Injections

Spinal injections can be used to help reduce pain and improve function when a patient is suffering from back and/or leg pain.   This procedure can help relieve pain by reducing inflammation (swelling and irritation) either in the joints of the back (facets) or around the nerves going to the legs (Sciatica).

In addition to helping relieve pain an injection can also help your doctor identify the source of your pain which can lead to more specific treatments and even longer lasting relief. The type of injection you may receive is based on your specific symptoms and the findings of your physical examination.
