Minimally Invasive Pain Relief
Another approach that we often take to Minimally invasive pain relief is injection therapy. This method can include cortisone injections, epidural steroid injections, trigger point injections, and nerve blocks. These injections work by stopping the worst of your pain and giving you and your physician an opportunity to correct the problem through physical therapy while you are not in acute distress.
Medications For Back Pain Relief
Much like injections, medicines, such as anti-inflammatory drugs, can help temporarily relieve pain and inflammation, allowing you to live with less pain while you and your physician work on correcting the issue that is the root of your back or neck pain. Coastal Spine makes every attempt not to use narcotics as part of your pain management regimen unless necessary. We feel treating the underlying cause is more important and increases the effectiveness of pain relief in the long-term.
