Anesco Interventional Pain Institute is your source for all types of therapeutic injections for back pain, sports injuries, and nerve damage. Injection therapy is an effective technique used in interventional pain medicine that can reduce or eliminate your pain, no matter what the cause.
For some people, pain injections can reduce or eliminate the need for surgery, as well. Pain relief can last for several months, allowing you to enjoy a pain-free life without taking pain pills.
With injection therapy, back pain relief is felt immediately because the injection contains a local anesthetic to numb the area. After the numbness wears off, pain relief is extended by anti-inflammatory medication also contained in the injection. The injection is administered near the source of your pain to provide quick, targeted relief. Common types of pain injections include:
- Epidural injections (cervical, thoracic, and lumbar)
- Facet joint injections
- Trigger point injections
- Sacroiliac joint injection
Another type of injection is PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy. With this technique, a concentrated dose of platelets, made from your own blood, are injected at the source of an injury to stimulate the natural healing process. PRP therapy is commonly used for injured athletes who need to recover quickly.
Selective nerve blocks are another way to instantly relieve pain. We can pinpoint the exact source of your pain by blocking pain signals for specific nerves. A local anesthetic is used with this technique as well, so the procedure is painless.
Nerve blocks are often used to treat pain caused by damaged or diseased nerves in the spine. Different types of nerve blocks are used to treat pain in different areas.
