Injections are a non-surgical treatment that can offer pain relief from back pain, acute pain, chronic pain and orthopedic pain.
There are many different types of injections including prp injections, prolotherapy, cortisone injections, trigger point injections and nerve blocks to relieve pain caused by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, sports injuries and back pain. The type of injection that is used depends on the type of pain and where it is located. Learn more about the types of injections offered at Comprehensive Spine & Sports Center below.
Steroid injections deliver a strong anti-inflammatory solution to the area of the body that is in pain. Steroid injections can be used for arthritis, joint pain, tendon pain and lower back pain. Depending on the condition, steroid injections can offer temporary pain relief from months to years in length.
Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injections deliver medication into a trigger point or knots within the body. Trigger point injections are often used to treat fibromyalgia, chronic headaches and myofascial pain, a chronic pain disorder.
Nerve Block Injections
Nerve block injections work to decrease inflammation and/or to block a pain signal along a single nerve or group of nerves. Nerve blocks are used for back pain, acute and/or chronic pain.
Prolotherapy injections use the body's own ability to heal itself. The injection contains a solution that stimulates the growth and repair to strong and healthy tissues, therefore reducing pain and increasing range of motion. Prolotherapy is used for sports injuries, arthritis or back injuries including bulging discs.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Injections
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections use a solution of the patient's own blood, which is separated and a concentrated solution of the platelets is injected back into the injured tissue to promote healing. In essence, the body's own healing factors are injected back into the injured area. PRP injections can be used for osteoarthritis and sports injuries.
