Therapeutic injections are usually used to treat neck or back pain stemming from a facet joint, spinal nerve, and/or an intervertebral disc.
⚕️Commonly administered injections for neck and back pain are:
✅️Epidural injections—deposit the medication, typically steroids, in the epidural space of the spine.
Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections for Low Back Pain and Sciatica
✅️Selective nerve root block injections—target a specific spinal nerve and deposit medication around the nerve at the point where it exits the intervertebral foramen (bony opening between adjacent vertebrae).
✅️Facet joint injections—treat pain stemming from a specific facet joint.
✅️Medial branch blocks—deposit medication around the medial branches of spinal nerves. The medial branch is a nerve that sends pain signals to the brain from an arthritic facet joint. An injection directed around the medial branch can relieve neck pain and also be used to treat headaches stemming from the neck.
✅️Sacroiliac (SI) joint injections—treat pain originating from the SI joint, which connects the spine to the pelvis.
