Pain Management Injections

We are highly experienced in performing precise injections for rapid pain relief.  We have successfully completed thousands of pain management injections for patients in Houston and Victoria with great results

Pain management injections are targeted treatments used to alleviate chronic pain in various parts of the body, including the spine, joints, and nerves. These injections deliver medication directly to the source of pain, offering rapid and often significant relief. We perform pain management injections under imaging guidance to ensure precision, these minimally invasive procedures can provide temporary or long-term pain relief, depending on the type of injection and the individual's condition. Pain management injections are valuable tools that we employ when appropriate in a comprehensive pain management plan, helping patients return to daily activities with improved quality of life.  Ultimately, it is up to you and the physician to determine what the best course of action and therapy is for you and that you are comfortable pursuing. 

Schedule a consultation to take the next step in determining whether an injection is appropriate for your individual condition.  Our dedicated staff works diligently with your insurance to secure necessary approvals.  We will work with your insurer to get same-day approval for injections if appropriate. 

Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI)

An Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI) is a minimally invasive procedure used in pain management to deliver anti-inflammatory medication directly into the epidural space around the spinal nerves. This treatment is commonly used to alleviate chronic pain, particularly in the lower back, neck, and legs, often resulting from conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or radiculopathy. By reducing inflammation and swelling of spinal nerves, an ESI can significantly relieve pain and improve mobility, offering patients a non-surgical option for pain relief with effects that can last from weeks to months, thereby enhancing quality of life and potentially delaying or avoiding surgery.

Joint Injections

A joint injection is a pain management technique where a medication, typically a combination of a corticosteroid and a local anesthetic, is directly injected into a painful joint to provide relief from various conditions, such as arthritis, tendinitis, or bursitis. This procedure is designed to reduce inflammation, decrease pain, and improve joint function, offering patients a minimally invasive option for managing chronic joint pain. Joint injections are widely used for knees, shoulders, hips, and other joints, providing significant relief that can last for months, thereby improving mobility and quality of life for individuals suffering from joint-related pain.

SI Joint Injection

A Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Injection is a targeted pain management procedure used to diagnose and relieve pain originating from the SI joint, where the spine meets the pelvis. This minimally invasive technique involves the precise injection of a corticosteroid and an anesthetic medication directly into the SI joint, aiming to reduce inflammation and block pain signals. SI joint injections are particularly effective for individuals experiencing lower back or leg pain due to conditions such as SI joint dysfunction or inflammation. By providing both diagnostic insight and therapeutic relief, SI joint injections can significantly improve a patient's mobility and quality of life, serving as a valuable tool in the comprehensive management of sacroiliac joint pain.

Facet Joint Injection

A Facet Joint Injection is a pain management procedure aimed at alleviating pain and inflammation in the facet joints, which are small stabilizing joints located between and behind adjacent vertebrae in the spine. This minimally invasive technique involves the injection of a corticosteroid and an anesthetic directly into the facet joint, providing both immediate pain relief from the anesthetic and longer-term relief from the corticosteroid's anti-inflammatory effects. Facet joint injections are particularly beneficial for patients with arthritis, spinal stenosis, or those experiencing chronic back and neck pain due to facet joint disease. By reducing inflammation and pain, these injections can significantly improve spinal mobility and function, enhancing the patient's overall quality of life.

Trigger Point Injection

A Trigger Point Injection (TPI) is a pain management technique used to treat painful areas of muscle that contain trigger points, or knots of muscle that form when muscles do not relax. During the procedure, a healthcare provider injects a local anesthetic, sometimes combined with a corticosteroid, directly into the trigger point. This injection helps alleviate the muscle pain and stiffness, and can also reduce inflammation in the surrounding area. TPIs are commonly used to treat conditions like fibromyalgia, tension headaches, and myofascial pain syndrome, offering quick relief and helping to restore muscle function. The procedure is minimally invasive, typically takes only a few minutes, and can provide relief from pain and discomfort, improving the patient's mobility and quality of life.  We can frequently perform trigger point injections on the same day working with your insurer to obtain the necessary approvals.

Bursa Injection

A bursa injection is a pain management technique that involves administering medication directly into a bursa, a fluid-filled sac that reduces friction between tissues of the body. This procedure is typically used to treat painful inflammation of the bursa, known as bursitis, which can affect various joints, including the shoulder, hip, knee, or elbow. The injection usually contains a corticosteroid to reduce inflammation and an anesthetic to provide immediate pain relief. Bursa injections are effective in alleviating symptoms of bursitis, such as pain and swelling, thereby improving joint movement and enhancing the quality of life for individuals with this condition.
