Adding to the frustration is trying conservative methods to treat your back pain without success. At Coastal Spine, we work hard to help you get relief. When back pain lingers for too long, more aggressive measures, such as spinal injections, become an option to help restore your quality of life.

Here is what you need to know about pain management for back pain, Injection Therapy, and how it may be able to help you.

Pain Management and Finding Causes

Back pain is something that most of us encounter from time to time. However, it becomes a huge problem when you experience severe pain for a long time.

Some common pain management strategies for back pain include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Pain medications
  • Muscle relaxers
  • Nerve stimulators
  • And surgery for the most severe cases.

For some, these methods work for a short time but gradually lose their effectiveness. Upon visiting your doctor, you’ll receive tests such as an x-ray, and MRI, to assess your pain levels and establish a cause. Locating your pain and establishing a reason behind it is crucial because it helps determine if Injection Therapy is right for you and the type of Injection Therapy you may need.

Types of Injections

We offer several injection strategies to treat you based on your needs.

These include:

  • Epidural Steroid Injection
  • Facet Joint Injections
  • Sacroiliac Joint Injections
  • Coccyx Injection
  • and many others

Fear and Spinal Injections

If you’re fearful of needles or are hesitant about a spinal examination, you have nothing to fear. We take pride in giving you the safety and comfort you need. You can count on your room and all instruments being clean, and you can trust that your doctor will place the needle in the correct spot under x-ray guidance.

When to Consider Injection Therapy

Injection therapy is a progressive step in treating back pain. If you’re currently experiencing chronic pain, inflammation, or discomfort in your back and all other options have failed, Injection Therapy may be a viable option for you. Also, if you’re looking for a minimally invasive treatment method to avoid spinal surgery, Injection Therapy can be worth considering.
