When arthritis causes enough pain that it undermines the ability to rehabilitate, spinal injections may be used. These involve the injection of a long-lasting steroid in either the epidural space (Epidural Steroid Injections) or in the joints (Facet Joint Injections).
Because arthritis is a condition of inflammation in the joints, joint injections are a particularly relevant treatment. The facet joints are found between the vertebrae of each spinal segment. Arthritis and back pain sufferers often experience an improvement in mobility and reduced pain through Facet Joint Injections.
The paradigm of care at our Red Bank pain management and rehabilitation facility is to help patients reduce pain and return to normal functioning with as little surgical and/or pharmaceutical intervention as possible. This type of care uses a healthy, cooperative approach between multiple modalities (traditional medical care, physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic) to ensure that every treatment option is available to patients in one place. This makes the pain management and rehabilitation process easier and more effective for patients.
