There are some instances when injections are the most effective procedure available to treat pain. Steroid injections, for example, can significantly reduce pain-causing inflammation, and may provide many months of relief following a single injection.

Injections may also aid in diagnoses. For example, a stellate ganglion block enables the doctor to locate the areas of pain through the injection of a colored solution. In this case, once located, the irritated or inflamed areas are bathed in a soothing anti-inflammatory, anesthetic saline solution. In this procedure, as with any procedure involving an injection of this nature, both a relaxing IV line and local anesthesia are applied so the patient remains comfortable throughout. Our patients’ comfort is our first and final priority.
