Back Pain Treatments
At BPM we offer a multitude of injection treatments as well as TENS units. We refer out to chiropractic care and Physical Therapy.
Carpal Tunnel Injections
We can inject steroid into the region to decrease inflammation and hope to avoid surgery with the use of splints and home exercises.
Caudal Steroid Injection
This is an epidural injection done with the use of in office fluoroscopy in patients with lower back pain and stenosis. It may also be used in conjunction with a catheter to lyse adhesions after lumbar surgery.
Celiac Plexus Block
For chronic abdominal pain and pancreatic disease this block done with fluoro can alleviate chronic abdominal pain arising from the upper abdominal organs.
Cervical Steroid Injection
These injections can treat headache, neck pain as well as neuropathic pain radiating from the neck to the upper extremety.
Epidural Steroid Injection
These can be either midline as in pregnancy epidurals or via a transforaminal approach to singlr out a certain region ( left or right ) for specific sciatic pain.
Just as we have knee and shoulder joints, we have cervical, thoracic and lumbar region facet joints. They can become inflamed as any joint. Treatment with injections directly into these joints will decrease inflammation and pain triggers to alleviate localized pain.
Ganglion Impar Block
Most perineal pain may be treated with this type of block done with fluoro.
Intercostal Nerve Block
Rib pain from fractures and post-herpetic neuralgia can easily be treated with these blocks of the nerves arising from each rib. These are done in office.
Many joints cause pain and can be accessed with an injection.
Knee Joint Injections
Medial Branch Blocks
The nerves carrying information from the lumbar facets to the brain are called median branch nerves. We can block these as a diagnostic/therapeutic procedure. If successful, we may schedule Radiofrequency Ablation of that nerve to destroy the transmission of pain from the joint to the brain.
Occipital Nerve Block
For posterior headaches and post-infection pain, we can block the nerves to the posterior portion of the head in office.
After failing conservative treatments and over the counter medicines, we may find it appropriate to prescribe stronger medicines after a full evaluation of your chart and physical exam. Opioids should be kept to a minimum and for as short a period of time due to side effects.
This is destruction of a nerve responsible for the transmission of pain in any region.
Sacroiliac Joint Injections
The back of the hip region is close to this joint. Pain in this region can be accessed with fluoro in office just as knee and hip joints can be injected with steroid and numbing medicine.
Spinal Cord Stimulator Implants
Many conditions causing neuropathic pain of the axial spine and extremities can be treated with this implantable device. Post-laminectomy syndrome, sciatica, RSD/CRPS, Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy, Phantom limb pain and many other conditions and many times cured with the use of this technology.
Stellate Ganglion Block
This is a block of the autonomic nervous branch in the neck to help treat and diagnose RSD/CRPS.
Superior Hypogastric Plexus Block
This is a diagnostic block as well as therapeutic block mainly for RSD/CRPS.
Trigger Point Injections
Any muscle group with continues ache/spasm may be injected in office with steroid and numbing agent to alleviate the spasm.
