Studies have shown that Epidural Steroid Injections performed with the use of Fluoroscopy are more effective than without; for this reason, our Shrewsbury, Wall, and Lacey NJ facilities incorporate a cutting-edge Fluoroscopy Suite. Our medical director is board certified in Physiatry, also known as Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R).
The medical care at Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation has one overall goal: to help patients rehabilitate and reduce symptoms with as little pharmaceutical or surgical intervention as possible. Epidural Steroid Injections are used only when entirely necessary. Other minimally invasive procedures offered at our office include the following:
Facet Joint Injections: Injections of a long-lasting steroid (cortisone) are administered in the facet joints, which are located between the vertebrae of each spinal segment. The purpose of this type of injection is to treat pain and inflammation in the joints.
Sacroiliac Joint Injections: The Sacroiliac Joint is located between the sacrum (the bone in the lower portion of the spine, below the lumbar spine) and the right and left iliac (pelvic) bones. Injection of a long-lasting steroid in this area reduces pain and inflammation in the lower back.
Coccyx Injections: If it is established that pain is originating from the coccyx (tailbone), injections of a long-last steroid, or cortisone, can ease symptoms.
Image-Guided Peripheral Joint Injections: This type of injection is used to relieve inflamed joints in the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees (often caused by tendonitis or arthritis).
Trigger Point Injections: Injections of a local anesthetic medication and/or cortisone into trigger points—areas of intense muscle spasm (also known as Myofascial pain)—can reduce symptoms.
Sympathetic Blocks: A local anesthetic is injected in the sympathetic nerve tissue located on either side of the spine. This purpose of this treatment is to block the nerves in order to alleviate pain and inflammation.
