Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedural Therapies

Identifying the source of pain generation is often complex. A variety of procedures, including neural blocks, can aid in diagnosis. Having successfully identified the source of pain, the physician can then use this information to make the most appropriate choice of treatment.

Examples of some of these procedures include:

Epidural Steroid Injection

An epidural steroid injection is a conservative procedure done to attempt to control pain due to inflamed and/or irritated nerve roots in the spine.


Selective Nerve Root Block

A selective nerve root block is a procedure that is used diagnostically to identify whether a spinal nerve is the generator of pain.


Facet Joint Injection

The facet joints are joints between the vertebrae of your spine, much like the knuckles in your hand, that allow for proper stability and mobility of your spine.


Lumbar Sympathetic Block

A lumbar sympathetic block is a procedure which is used to diagnose and sometimes treat certain pain disorders of your leg or foot.


Stellate Ganglion Block

A stellate ganglion block is a procedure which is used to diagnose and sometimes to treat certain pain disorders involving your head, shoulder, or arm.


Other procedures:

  • Spinal injections
  • Peripheral Nerve Blocks
  • Trigger Point Injection
  • Other Joint Injections and Procedures
