EPIDURAL

When conditions of acute or chronic neck pain, low back pain, sciatica, neuropathic pain or certain other pain syndromes require treatment beyond conservative measures, an epidural steroid injection may be suggested. 

This is a common interventional pain procedure where a needle is inserted towards the epidural space, under live X-ray guidance. (A local anesthetic is used to help with discomfort during the procedure).

A small amount of local anesthestic is also infused in the epidural space along with steroids to help provide long-term pain relief. Normally, this procedure results in improvement in your pain, although the results may not happen immediately. Keeping a log of your pain and it’s improvement after the procedure is helpful in determining further treatment.

FACET JOINT INJECTIONS

Facet joint injections are interventional pain procedures performed under x-ray guidance, where a local anesthetic and a steroid are infused into one or more joints of the spine.

Keeping a journal of your experience after an injection is helpful to understand your pain and the benefits the treatment provided to you.

You will be asked about the amount of relief you received with your treatment and how long the relief lasted. This information is used to determine further treatment.

SPINAL CORD STIMULATION

This is a modality of treatment used to help central pain without the use of medications it provides a low intensity electrical signal to the spinal cord which improves pain control and has the added benefit of being almost completely under the control of the patient.

This procedure is used for the treatment of chronic low back pain and multiple types of neuropathic pain.

First, a trial of a spinal cord stimulator is performed for about one week. The trial begins with the implementation of temporary leads into the epidural space at levels deemed appropriate for control of the painful areas. This is done under X-ray guidance.

Once the leads are incorrect placement, then the leads are connected to a device and a valuation of the correct placement is confirmed.

At the end of the trial, the amount of pain control will be discussed between the physician and the patient. If the patient receives 50% or better improvement in their pain, then permanent placement of the spinal cord stimulator unit will be scheduled. The trial leads are usually removed at this meeting.

Before a patient can proceed for permanent placement of the spinal cord stimulator device, a psychological a valuation is performed. Most physicians choose to have evaluation performed before the trial is implemented.

These intrathecal pump’s are implantable and provide programmable medication delivery devices for the treatment of a specific chronic pain syndrome. They provide benefits to people with cancer pain, chronic back pain, neuropathic pain and muscle spasticity if the patient has tried and failed more conservative treatments.

If the patient receives 50% or more improvement in their painful condition, permanent placement of the intrathecal pump will be scheduled an appropriate time.
