Pain Treatment Injections

At the Houston Spine and Rehabilitation Centers, we offer a range of pain management injection-based services for patients seeking pain relief. Our skilled pain management specialists administer these injections to target the specific areas causing pain and provide immediate and long-term relief. The types of injections we provide include:

Knee  joint injection
  • Injections for Joints: These injections serve both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. We help diagnose the source of pain while providing therapeutic relief. 
  • Trigger Point Injections: These injections are used to treat painful knots or trigger points in the muscles, providing localized pain relief and promoting muscle relaxation.
  • Epidural Steroid Injections: These injections deliver anti-inflammatory medication directly into the epidural space of the spine to reduce inflammation and relieve pain associated with conditions such as herniated discs or spinal stenosis.
  • Facet Joint Injections: These injections target the small joints located between the vertebrae of the spine, providing relief from pain caused by facet joint arthritis or injury.
  • Sacroiliac Joint Injections: These injections target the sacroiliac joint, which can be a source of lower back and hip pain. By delivering medication to this joint, we can reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.

Nerve Root Block Injections

In addition to the above-mentioned injections, we also offer effective nerve root block injections for pain relief. We offer two types of nerve root block injections:

Lumbar nerve block injection.
  • Occipital Nerve Block: Administered at the base of the skull, this injection targets the occipital nerves and is highly effective in alleviating chronic headaches, including migraines.
  • Lumbar Sympathetic Block Injections: These injections target the sympathetic nerves in the lumbar region, which can be the source of lower back and leg pain. We are particularly beneficial for individuals with conditions such as chronic regional pain syndrome or reflex sympathetic dystrophy.

We are dedicated to using advanced pain management techniques to enhance our patients' well-being.

Treatment Procedures

At our The Woodlands and Houston locations, we offer comprehensive procedures to address pain and promote rehabilitation. These procedures are designed to provide long-lasting relief and improve functionality. Some of the treatment procedures we offer include:

  • Radiofrequency Ablation: This procedure uses heat to disrupt pain signals from specific nerves, providing relief for various conditions such as arthritis, facet joint pain, or neuropathic pain
  • Spinal Cord Stimulator: It is an implantable device that delivers mild electrical impulses to the spinal cord, interrupting pain signals and reducing the sensation of pain. Spinal cord stimulation is particularly effective for individuals with chronic back or limb pain that has not responded to other treatments.

Pain management therapy falls under the non-surgical category of pain relief. Our goal is to prevent unnecessary surgery for our patients. We prioritize natural methods initially, but for more severe conditions, a stronger and more targeted approach may be necessary to alleviate pain.

Frequently Asked Pain Management Questions

How Does Pain Affect the Body?

Pain is your body's way of alerting you to possible injury. When your body is injured, nerve endings send signals to the brain to tell it to protect that area, promote healing, and prevent further damage. However, when pain persists beyond the healing period, it transitions from being helpful to harmful. Chronic pain can hinder your daily activities and overall quality of life. It can lead to material issues like limited mobility, tense muscles, a lack of energy, and changes in appetite. However, it goes beyond just physical effects. Often, chronic pain contributes to high levels of anxiety and depression.

What Pain Management Options Do You Offer?

Pain can be debilitating, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. At our clinics in The Woodlands and Houston, TX, we offer a wide variety of pain management strategies to cater to different types of pain and patient preferences. We will tailor a plan to address your specific adult pain relief needs. By pinpointing the source of the issue, we can provide long-term solutions that stand the test of time. From physical therapy to chiropractic care and cold laser therapy, we have plenty of non-invasive options to help. Reach out to us to learn more.

What Is the Difference Between Acute Pain and Chronic Pain?

Acute pain is the result of injury or illness. It serves as a warning signal to the body and usually subsides once the underlying cause is treated or healed. Think of how a basic cut or bruise hurts. On the other hand, chronic pain persists for extended periods, even after the initial injury or illness has healed. It usually persists for more than three months and can be both physically and emotionally taxing. For example, this might be a post-surgery pain that hasn’t improved. We understand the complexities of chronic pain and how it can impact your quality of life and overall well-being. That’s why we offer specialized chronic pain solutions to reduce pain and improve function.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Pain?

Some of the most common causes of pain include sudden injuries like work or car accidents, repeated muscle strain, and conditions like TMJ and arthritis. Repetitive movements or heavy lifting are often overlooked causes of injury and pain. Sometimes, pain can be a symptom of an underlying health condition like degenerative disc disease, peripheral neuropathy, or scoliosis. We work to find the cause of your pain and create a treatment plan that takes the cause of your pain into consideration.  

I Don’t Know What’s Causing My Pain. Can You Help?

Absolutely. We start with an in-depth consultation and imaging techniques that help us learn more about your body, condition, and pain levels. If you don’t know why you are feeling the way you are feeling, our expert staff will help you find out. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you are unsure of the source of your pain since our advanced diagnostic techniques will help pinpoint it. Even if it's just a little bit of back, neck, or knee pain, we can provide effective pain management strategies to help you get relief.

How Long Will It Take for Me to See Improvement?

The timeframe for seeing improvement after starting a pain management plan varies from person to person. It depends on several factors, including the cause, intensity, and duration of your pain, your overall health, and how well you follow the treatment plan. At The Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Centers, we are dedicated to providing effective chronic pain solutions to our patients that get to the heart of the issue fast. We work closely with you to create a personalized treatment plan that suits your unique circumstances. Our goal is to help you achieve significant improvements and regain your normal lifestyle as quickly as possible.
