Interventional Pain Services
Severe or persistent pain can be a very complex and debilitating medical condition that can interfere with your physical and mental well-being. At Trios Health, we support your pain specialist in performing a variety of outpatient interventional pain services that may benefit you, including:
Caudal Epidural Steroid Injection
This procedure is an injection of a steroid-anesthetic medication through an opening in the sacrum to reduce the swelling and inflammation of irritated spinal nerves.
Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection
Relieves pain in the neck, shoulders, and arms caused by a pinched nerve (or nerves) in the cervical spine. Conditions such as herniated discs and spinal stenosis can compress nerves, causing inflammation and pain. The medication injected helps decrease the swelling of nerves.
Cervical Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy
This minimally-invasive procedure—performed with local anesthetic—reduces or eliminates the pain of damaged facet joints by disrupting the medial branch nerves that carry pain signals.
Facet Joint Injections
The facet joints, found on both sides of the back of the spine, can become painfully irritated or inflamed. A facet joint injection may help diagnose the source of your pain. It can also relieve pain and inflammation.
Fluoroscopic Guided Steroid Injection for Knee Pain
This non-operative procedure is designed to provide relief for patients with arthritis of the knee. The technique allows the physician to inject an inflammation-reducing steroid with maximum accuracy.
Hip Joint Injection
Relieves hip, leg, or buttock pain caused by arthritis or other damage to the hip joint.
Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection
Relieves low back and radiating leg pain. Steroid medication can reduce the swelling and inflammation caused by spinal conditions.
Lumbar Radiofrequency Neurotomy
This minimally invasive procedure, also called radiofrequency (RF) rhizotomy, reduces or eliminates the pain of damaged facet joints by disrupting the medial branch nerves that carry the pain signals. This procedure is performed with local anesthetic.
Lumbar Sympathetic Block
Relieves leg pain caused by complex regional pain syndromes, which may develop after an injury to a joint or limb. Usually a series of injections are needed to treat the problem.
Lumbar Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection
This injection of a steroid-anesthetic medication can reduce swelling and inflammation of irritated spinal nerves. This procedure is performed to relieve pain in the lower back and pain that radiates from the back to the legs.
Medial Branch Block
This diagnostic procedure is performed to identify a painful facet joint. The facet joints are the joints between the vertebrae in the spine. They allow the spine to bend, flex, and twist.
Sacroiliac Joint Steroid Injection
Relieves pain caused by arthritis in the sacroiliac joint where the spine and hip bone meet. The steroid medication can reduce swelling and inflammation in the joint.
Therapeutic Shoulder Joint Injection
Relieves pain in the shoulder and arm caused by arthritis, injury, or disorder.
Trigger Point Injections
Designed to reduce or relieve the pain of trigger points. These small, tender knots can form in muscles or in the fascia (the soft, stretchy connective tissue that surrounds muscles and organs).
All staff members at the Trios Pain Center are Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certified and trained in conscious sedation.
