Spinal Injections

medical procedureSpinal injections are performed either to confirm a suspected diagnosis and/or reduce pain and inflammation for the patient with spinal problems. These injections are best performed under fluoroscopy to avoid misplacement of the needle (and nerve or other injury), and assure proper placement of the needle which in turn answers the question if one blocks one nerve is it the source of pain. Studies have shown that without fluoroscopy up to forty percent of all epidural injections do not go into the epidural space.
