Start your recovery with Apex Spine Institute, the premier clinic for back and neck pain in Tri-Cities. We specialize in helping our patients get out of pain utilizing the latest surgical and non-surgical procedures, including steroid spinal injections.
One-on-One Patient Exam
Our certified orthopedic physicians and interventional pain management specialists meet with you to discuss your pain and what you hope to achieve with treatment.
Testing & Diagnostic Imaging
Before any treatment can be recommended, you will likely undergo testing and/or diagnostic imaging (X-ray, MRI, CT, etc.) to pinpoint the source of the problem.
Spinal Epidural Injection
If your provider recommends a spinal injection, this procedure can be completed in our office or at our outpatient surgery center. This treatment may be combined with others for optimal outcomes.
A Less-Invasive Treatment Option for Back & Neck Pain
Injecting steroid medication into the spine is a minimally invasive treatment option that often yields great results for people dealing with back or neck pain. The medicine works by reducing the pain and inflammation around the injury to promote the healing process.
We may recommend a spinal injection for people suffering from:
Degenerative Disc Issue
Axial Lower Back Pain
How Spinal Injection Works
A spinal injection is a non-surgical, interventional, pain management method that can prevent or prolong the need for surgery. The injection combines anti-inflammatory medicine along with a local anesthetic to provide pain relief. The number of injections required depends on the severity of pain.
What is the Recovery Process Like?
Like any steroid injection, you'll need to limit your movement for the first 24-48 hours after the injection. After that initial period, you should begin to feel some relief and you may resume your normal daily activities.
