Lumbar and Cerival Epidural Injections – An epidural injection places anti-inflammatory medicine into the epidural space to decrease inflammation of the nerve roots.

Facet Injections – A cervical (neck), thoracic (upper back) or lumbar (lower back) facet joint injection involves injecting a steroid medication, which can anesthetize the facet joints and block the pain.

Rhiztomy – It is the destruction of the nerves in the facet joints, normally by burning them with radiofrequency current.

Trigger Point Injections – Injecting a trigger point can help to release tension in the muscle band and help the body to heal.

Spinal Cord Stimulator Trials – A spinal cord stimulator is a specialized device that stimulates the spinal cord and spinal nerves by tiny electrical impulses via a small electrical wire placed behind and just outside the spinal cord in the epidural space. The electrical wire or lead contains a series of four to eight evenly spaced electrodes that can be programmed to generate an electrical field.
