Injections

Injections of medications to decrease pain and inflammation have long been used in pain medicine as additional, adjunctive treatment to medications. Traditionally, it has always been a combination of a steroid and a local anesthetic agent. The steroid acts to interrupt the inflammatory cascade that leads to pain and swelling. The local anesthetic provides immediate pain relief to provide diagnostic confirmation of the pain generator as well as to break the pain cycle in certain chronic pain syndromes like Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and trigger points.

Medications

Pain medicine is a multi-disciplinary approach that incorporates modalities from various specialties to ensure a comprehensive evaluation and treatment of the pain patient. Pain can be very challenging to treat. Our Pain Management Specialists at Virginia Spine Institute have sophisticated new treatments to provide pain relief. Advances continue to emerge as researchers and clinicians gain a greater understanding about the origin, mechanism, and perception of pain.
