Pain Management Treatments
Our radiologists can perform a variety of procedures that can help suffering patients find relief from pain. Many of those procedures can especially help patients dealing with back pain, chronic facial pain or joint pain.
Our radiologists perform a variety of spinal procedures including:
- Lumbar Steroid injections
- Nerve root blocks
- Facet injections
- Median nerve branch blocks
We perform injections for joints in the body such as the shoulder, hip, knee and sacroiliac joints. For painful areas of muscles that contain trigger points, or knots of muscle that do not relax trigger point injections can be performed. Tendinopathy is a disease of a tendon that includes swelling in and around the tendon and can be treated by DRPC with ultrasound guided tendinopathy injections.
For patients with chronic facial pain or those with a severe stabbing pain to one side of the face known as tic douloureux (trigeminal neuralgia), we can offer a sphenopalatine ganglion block. The block is a short, minimally invasive injection procedure that is effective at treating the pain.
