Spine Injections Q & A

What can spine injections treat?

Spine injection procedures are one of the fastest ways to get relief from debilitating pain, with minimal downtime. Your doctor may recommend a spine injection if you suffer from:

  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Upper or lower back pain
  • Arthritic deterioration 
  • Spinal stenosis     
  • Spine injuries
  • Neck pain
  • Sciatica 

Sometimes spine injections are used for diagnostic purposes, too. For instance, if your physician suspects that a specific nerve is the source of your pain, they can inject an anti-inflammatory medication to see if you get relief. 

Spine injections are minimally invasive procedures performed right in the office. Your doctor can use advanced imaging technology to guide the needle to ensure medication is delivered directly where it needs to go for maximum benefits. 

Which type of spine injection do I need?  

Republic Spine and Pain offers the latest types of spine injections that are backed by extensive pain management research. Depending on your diagnosis and the severity of your symptoms, your doctor may recommend: 

  • Sacroiliac joint injections in your pelvic region
  • Stellate, lumbar, or impar sympathetic ganglion blocks
  • Facet joint injections in the joints between each vertebra
  • Cervical transforaminal epidural steroid injections in your neck
  • Epidural injections in your upper (thoracic) or lower (lumbar) back

Spine injections are designed to relieve pain by numbing the area and delivering powerful anti-inflammatory medications directly to the source of the problem. 

While you should plan on taking it easy the day of your spine injection at Republic Spine and Pain, you can usually return to most of your normal activities within a day or two. It’s common to feel relief from pain shortly after having a spine injection. 

How long do spine injections last?

It depends on the severity of your symptoms and which type of spine injection you have. Spine injections from Republic Spine and Pain can provide strong pain relief for acute issues that last just a few days, or lasting relief that can minimize chronic pain for weeks or even months at a time.

Once your spine injection starts wearing off, you can come back to Republic Spine and Pain for another treatment if needed.
