NERVE BLOCKS

A nerve block is exactly what it sounds like. Medication, usually an analgesic, is delivered by needle to the targeted nerve that is sounding the alarm. The medication works by preventing the signal from

reaching the brain. Most commonly used to treat pain, nerve blocks have also been used to treat hyperhydrosis, poor blood circulation, and even hiccups. ​

Nerve blocks are performed mostly in office, however they can be completed at ambulatory surgery centers and hospitals. Some require the use of ultrasound imaging guidance and fluoroscopy imaging guidance, while others do not require either.

The actual procedure time varies usually from 3-10 minutes, however appointments usually last 15 to 30 minutes. This does not include procedures that require IV sedation. 

If there is a nerve, it can be "blocked."

JOINT INJECTIONS

 

Joint injections are graded in terms of joint size and come in small, intermediate, and major "sizes." Small includes finger and toes, while intermediate includes elbow and ankle. Major joints are shoulder, hip, and knee. Most joint injections include the use of steroid to treat inflammation that is commonly the source of pain. 

Joint injections are performed mostly in office, however they can be completed at ambulatory surgery centers and hospitals. Some require the use of ultrasound imaging guidance and fluoroscopy imaging guidance, while others do not require either.

The actual procedure time varies usually from 3-10 minutes, however appointments usually last 15 to 30 minutes. This does include procedures that require IV sedation. 

TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS

 

Trigger point injections (TPIs) treat muscle pain and muscle spasms. These injections relax the muscle to make that sharp, knot-like pain go away. Usually, these can be located through the skin. Almost any muscle can be injected. 

Trigger point injections are performed in office. Some require the use of ultrasound imaging guidance while others do not. 

The actual procedure time varies usually from 3-10 minutes, however appointments usually last 15 to 30 minutes. This procedure is usually completed without IV sedation. 

BOTOX INJECTIONS

 

Botox injections are most commonly known for making wrinkles disappear. However, the procedure is also used for treatment of chronic migraines/headaches, and muscle spasms. Additionally, it has been used for treatment of hyperhidrosis.

Botox injections are performed in office. Depending on the condition treated, ultrasound imaging guidance may be required. 

The procedure time varies from 5-15 minutes, however appointments usually last 15 to 30 minutes. This procedure is usually completed without IV sedation. 

SPINE INJECTIONS

 

A variety of spine injections can be performed as a diagnostic or therapeutic procedure. Depending on the condition, common procedures include epidural injections, sympathetic blocks, facet joint injections, and medial branch blocks. 

These injections are usually performed in office in one of our two fluoroscopy suites. These procedures, however, can also be done at ambulatory surgery centers and hospitals. These procedures require the use of fluoroscopic imaging (seen at left). 

The actual procedure time varies usually from 5-15 minutes, however appointments usually last 30 to 60 minutes. This does not include procedures that require IV sedation. 

DISCOGRAPHY

 

Discography, also known as discogram or diskogram, is a diagnostic pain procedure. Usually, the referring

provider will specifically request this procedure at the time of the referral to determine

if one or more discs are the origin(s) of pain. 

This procedure is usually performed in office, however it can also be performed at ambulatory surgery centers and hospitals. These procedures require the use of fluoroscopic imaging. Most procedures are completed with IV sedation. 

The actual procedure time varies usually from 20 to 40 minutes, however appointments usually last one to two hours including preparation time and administration of IV sedation.
