Spinal Injections

Injections are the first line of treatment for many spinal pathologies.

Injections are useful for both diagnosing and treating spinal conditions.

Epidural Injections

Medication is injected into the epidural space, which is the space around the spinal nerves.

Both a numbing medication and a steroid (cortisone) are injected.

Epidural injections are used to diagnose and treat pain caused by pressure on the nerves.

Injections may fix the problem, or they may only work temporarily

Sacroiliac Joint Injections

Medication is injected into the sacroiliac joint, which is where the pelvis meets the spine.

Both a numbing medication and a steroid (cortisone) are injected.

Sacroiliac joint injections are used to diagnose and treat pain caused from joint irritation.
