Spinal injections vary in location and purpose. Both diagnostic and therapeutic injections are available to help treat back and leg pain. After conservative measures, such as therapy and medications are trialed, our physicians can suggest a treatment plan for your individual needs based on a careful exam and correlation with recent imaging.
As multiple procedures are available and your back is unique to you, benefits and expectations are individually discussed with each patient. Our procedures are performed at the Mercy Fairfield Hospital’s Spine Intervention Center.
To undergo a scheduled procedure, you must have a driver available to drive you home after the procedure and be off of certain medications. A patient handout is included below for your reference on instructions for location and medications to be stopped and duration required. For your safety, failing to stop these medications will result in your procedure being postponed.
