Pain Management

Back pain is a problem for 70 million Americans. Fortunately, spine surgery is rarely needed. Instead, back and neck conditions are often treated with interventional pain management techniques like epidural injections and nerve blocks.

Pain management encompasses pharmacological, nonpharmacological, and other approaches to prevent, reduce, or stop pain sensations. 

At Allegiance Orthopedic & Spine Institute, our surgeons use image-guided fluoroscopy (a special type of X-ray) to inject pain-relieving medication precisely where you need it, without risking damage to your spine. The medication works by reducing pain caused by inflammation, and results can last for several months. Injections can be repeated for longer lasting benefits.
