Injections Q & A

What are injections?

Injections are a form of interventional pain management treatment offered by the team at Arlington Pain & Therapy. You may want to consider injections for your pain if your medication isn’t providing the type of relief you need to get back to your everyday activities.

Am I a good candidate for injections?

Your specialist at Arlington Pain & Therapy determines if you’re a good candidate for injections after a comprehensive evaluation that includes a review of your symptoms and past medical history.

Common conditions treated with injections at Arlington Pain & Therapy include:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Joint or tendon pain
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Vertebroplasty
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

These types of interventional treatments are usually only recommended after you’ve tried other more conservative treatments, such as prescription medication and physical therapy.

What types of injections can relieve my pain?

Arlington Pain & Therapy offers many types of injections to provide relief from your pain. The type of injection you need depends on the underlying cause.

Types of injections include:

Epidural injection

During an epidural injection, your specialist injects a local anesthetic and/or steroid into the epidural space of your spine.

Facet injection

Your facet joints are the flexible joints in your spine. A facet joint injection may be used to determine if your facet joint is the source of your back pain.

Nerve block

A nerve block helps determine if a nerve root is the source of your pain, and may be conducted to see if you’re a good candidate for a rhizotomy.

Sympathetic nerve block

A sympathetic nerve block is similar to a nerve block and is used to determine if your sympathetic nerves, which are the group of nerves that run along your spinal column, are generating your pain.

Viscosupplementation

During viscosupplementation injections, your specialist at Arlington Pain & Therapy injects hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance naturally found in your body, into your joint to provide lubrication and cushion and relieve joint pain.

Trigger point injection

A trigger point injection is used to relieve muscle pain. During the injection, your specialist injects a local anesthetic and corticosteroid into your muscle knot to relieve the tension and pain.

In addition to pain management, the specialists also offer discogram injections to locate diseased or damaged discs that may be causing back pain.

Your specialist at Arlington Pain & Therapy wants nothing more than for you to get relief from your pain so you can get back doing the things that make you happy. To schedule a consultation, call the office nearest you today.
