Pain Management in The Woodlands and Houston

Our pain management procedures include injections that comprise another surgical treatment option for low back pain. They are typically considered as an option to treat low back pain after a course of medications and/or physical therapy is completed, but before surgery is considered. Injections can be useful both for providing pain relief and as a diagnostic tool to help identify the source of the patient’s back pain.

PAIN RELIEF

Chiropractic Adjustments

Injections can be used for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. While there are several different types of injections, the premise is generally the same. A short-acting numbing medication and a long-acting anti-inflammatory medication are injected into a muscle, epidural space, or joint. If this results in pain relief, whether immediate or short term, the targeted area can usually be confirmed as the pain generator. When used for therapeutic purposes, the injections can be repeated up to two or three times a year to provide ongoing pain relief.

BENEFITS

Injections are usually more effective and faster acting than oral medications since the medication is administered directly to the anatomic pain source location. Typically, medications such as corticosteroids and local anesthetics are injected therefore reducing the inflammation and/or swelling of the nerves. Depending on the type of injection, pain relief may be variable in duration.
