Nerve BlocksA nerve block is an injection of medication onto or near nerves. The injected medication may include a local anesthetic, steroid and narcotic.
Epidural Steroid InjectionsThe epidural space is the space surrounding the membrane that covers the spinal cord and nerve roots. Disorders such as spinal stenosis and herniated disc can cause nerve irritation, inflammation and pain. An epidural injection places anti-inflammatory medication (eg steroids) into the epidural space. Epidural injections are performed in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine.
Sacroiliac Joint InjectionThe sacroiliac joint is the largest joint. It is located in the lower spine above the tailbone. Inflammation of the sacroiliac joint can cause low back and buttock pain. An injection of an anesthetic and steroid may help relieve joint pain.
