What treatments are used for pain management?

At Health East Medical Alliance, the team customizes your pain management based on the pain symptoms you’re suffering, how severe your pain is, and what’s causing it.

Treatments include:

Epidural injections

Epidural injections involve placing steroids directly into the epidural space of your spine. The steroids reduce inflammation and help suppress pain from irritated spinal nerves. This improves the function of your lower back and legs.

Nerve root and medial branch blocks

This treatment involves injecting an anesthetic near small medial nerves connected to specific joints in your spine. If the blocks reduce the pain, your doctor gets a good idea of where your pain is originating.

Facet joint injections

A pair of facet joints sit on each side of each of the vertebrae in your back and neck. If the cartilage that cushions the joints breaks down, you feel pain. Facet joint injections place an anesthetic and anti-inflammatory into the painful joints to reduce the pain and improve your range of motion.

Discography

Discography is used to diagnose and determine the best way to treat your nerve pain. It helps the doctors determine if the discs in your spine are why you’re having back pain.

During discography, a contrast dye is inserted into discs that are suspected to be injured. Based on your responses to each injection, your doctor can then determine what treatment you need to relieve your pain.
