If you suffer from pain of the spine or joints, relief is closer than you think. Fairfax Radiology provides a broad range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that will not only provide pain relief, but also help determine the cause of your pain so you and your physician can develop an appropriate treatment plan.
What types of Pain Management Services does Fairfax Radiology offer?
- Facet Block/Therapeutic Facet Injections (CT Guidance)
Injections that consist of anti-inflammatory steroid medication and/or anesthetic (numbing medication) that may reduce inflammation, resulting in pain relief within the joints and/or nerves that run along the outer edge of the facet joints in the spine. These injections may also provide valuable data necessary to determine treatment options.
- Nerve Blocks/Epidural Steroid Injections (CT Guidance)
Injections that use CT guidance to deliver medication adjacent to a specific nerve root in the spinal area are used to treat nerve impingement or to locate the nerve that may be causing symptoms.
- Sacroiliac Joint Injections (CT Guidance)
Injections that are used to evaluate and treat pain in the sacroiliac joints where the pelvis meets the spine.
- Hip and Shoulder Injections (CT or US Guidance)
General joint and extremities injections.
