Facet Joint injections
Facet joint injections involve the Injection of numbing medication and a steroid into the facet joint, which is a small joint located between the vertebrae. This can help to reduce pain and inflammation in the affected area. These injections are often used for back pain caused by arthritis or injury.
Sacroiliac Joint Injection
Sacroiliac joint injection involves the injection of a numbing medication and a steroid into the joint located between the sacrum and the ilium bones in the pelvis. This can help to reduce pain and inflammation in the affected area. These injections are often used for back pain caused by sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

This can help to reduce pain and inflammation in the affected area. These injections are often used for back pain caused by muscle tension, sprains, or injuries.
Botox For Migraines

Ketamine Infusion Injections
Ketamine is a painkiller and anesthetic with a fast action rate and low side effects. Ketamine has been used since the 1970s and is now a practical part of a multi-modal approach to treat and overcome chronic and osteopathic pain and provides maximum long-term relief.
Cervical Steroid Injection
The main goal of cervical epidural steroid injections is to help manage chronic pain caused by irritation and inflammation of the spinal nerve roots in your neck (the cervical region of your spine) due to certain conditions or injuries.
Medical Branch Nerve Block
Medial branch nerves are small nerves in the spinal region of your back. These nerves are formed in branch-like systems that communicate pain experienced in the facet joints of your spine. These nerves only communicate pain and control sensations in your back. The medial branch block procedure temporarily stops the nerves from communicating pain signals to the brain from the joints.
Ultrasound Guided Injections
Ultrasound machines allow us to see structures such as tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints in real time for a precise injection delivery. This allows us to safely inject structures that are otherwise difficult to examine and find into the body. It also allows us to avoid essential structures, such as blood vessels and nerves, that may be in the path of the injection needle. It allows our providers to see and avoid potential complications in real time during the procedure. We use ultrasound-guided injections to optimize our care for your specific needs.
Epidural Steroid Injections
Epidural steroid injections are a common type of injection involving injecting steroids into the epidural space, the region through which spinal nerves travel. The procedure is performed with the patient lying down. Intravenous sedation may be administered, and a region of skin and tissue of the neck is numbed with a local anesthetic delivered through a small needle. Contrast dye is injected into the space to ensure the needle is correctly positioned near the irritated nerve or nerves. A combination of an anesthetic and cortisone steroid solution is injected into the epidural space. Steroids are anti-inflammatory medications that are absorbed by the inflamed nerves to decrease swelling and relieve pressure.
