A Specialist at our Mokena clinic can alleviate you pain! Here is an explanation of the procedures we offer, and what they can do for your spine.
Lumbar Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection – this injection is used to relieve symptoms of sciatica or radiculopathy. The treatment alleviates discomfort in the legs as well as the lower back, to a lesser extent. Relief can last for weeks to a year, depending on the patient. Results are often heightened when coupled with a therapeutic exercise program.
Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection – this procedure delivers steroids to the space around the spinal nerve root, relieving inflammation. Inflamed cervical spinal nerves can cause pains in the neck, arms, and other areas. This treatment is used to provide patients with the necessary relief to allow them to progress with their rehabilitation.
Medial Branch Block – this procedure is a two-step process. The first step is mostly diagnostic to determine the source of the problem. It a specific facet joint is the source of the problem, and the patient receives adequate relief; they may be a candidate for a longer term relief treatment. The goal of this procedure is to interrupt the signals to the brain that registers as discomfort while leaving normal sensation and muscle strength intact.
Effective treatment is the first step in gaining the freedom to enjoy life on your own terms unhindered by chronic injuries. Here in Illinois, The Pain & Spine Institute can help you to a treatment plan that will improve your quality of life. It’s time to discover the joy that comes from relief.
