Pain Management

Interventional pain management is a subspecialty of interventional radiology with the goal to relieve, reduce, or manage chronic and/or acute pain in the spine, adjacent muscles, or joints.

At Apex Radiology we provide a full range of pain management interventional procedures including, Joint Injection, Facet Block Injection, Nerve Root Injection, and Steroid Injection. These procedures are minimally invasive and typically involve injection of local anesthetic along with a steroid medication, and usually involve CT or ultrasound image guidance for precise delivery to the area of concern including joints, bursae, tendons, nerve roots and more.

A fully trained Radiologist specialist doctor will use a combination of hydrocortisone and long-acting local anesthetic to inject into or around a bursa, joint, or nerve depending on the cause of pain to provide relief.
