Advanced Pain Treatment Options
At the Parkland Pain Center, our pain management techniques are designed to encourage mobility and improve your quality of life. You benefit from long-lasting pain relief administered by our caring team of experts.
Epidural Steroid Injection
An epidural steroid injection involves injecting steroids into the neck or low back. Sometimes, a local anesthetic is injected with the steroid. These injections may be appropriate if you experience herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis or nerve pain in the arms or legs.
Nerve and Facet Blocks
This therapy uses a local anesthetic and a small dose of steroid to perform a nerve block for specific areas of the body. The nerve block also can be used to diagnose which neural pathway is causing the chronic pain.
This treatment blocks pain messages to the brain, using radiofrequency energy to heat nerves, nerve endings or other tissues. Radiofrequancy energy is a form of electromagnetic energy similar to your microwave.
These procedures treat vertebral compression fractures (VCF) of the spine by using a balloon and then injecting cement into fractured vertebra to restore the height.
Trigger Point Injection
This is an injection of a numbing medication with or without a steroid into a muscle band.
