Injections for Pain Relief
“Don’t let the pain win, targeted pain relief is just a needle away”
At some point, almost everyone will experience pain that needs relief. When over-the-counter
medications, home remedies, and rest don’t work, it might be time to consider injections.
Treatment injections can provide pain relief by targeting the source of your pain.
What are Treatment Injections?
Treatment injections are a type of interventional pain management. Interventional pain management uses minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat pain conditions. Treatment injections can also be used as a diagnostic tool to help pinpoint the source of your pain.
There are several types of treatment injections, including:
How Do Treatment Injections Work?
Treatment injections work by delivering medication directly to the source of your pain. This can help reduce inflammation and pain. The medication used in treatment injections can be a local anesthetic, a corticosteroid, or both.
Local anesthetics work by temporarily numbing the area around the injection site. This can provide immediate pain relief. Corticosteroids are a type of anti-inflammatory medication. They can help reduce inflammation and pain.
Who is a Candidate for Treatment Injections?
You might be a candidate for treatment injections if you have persistent pain that has not responded to other treatments. You might also be a candidate if you cannot take oral pain medication or if you are looking for an alternative to surgery.
Your doctor will consider your medical history and conduct a physical examination. They might also order imaging tests, such as an X-ray, MRI, or CT scan, to help diagnose your pain.
