Lumbar and Sacral Injections
The lower back and pelvis are common areas for chronic pain. A wide variety of conditions can cause pain in the lower back and radiate down through the pelvis into the legs. Injection therapy can be very useful for both diagnosing and treating lumbar and sacral pain conditions. The pain specialists at DOCS Health offer lumbar and sacral injections at our medical center in Los Angeles, CA.
The difficulty in treating lower back, sciatic and pelvic pain is that many spine conditions can cause the same symptoms. For interventional pain treatments to be effective, the source of the pain needs to be identified. Spondylosis, herniated discs, vertebrae fractures, degenerative spine diseases and spinal injuries can all cause lower back or radiating pain. Injection therapy can be used to isolate the nerves causing the pain, providing not only information on the source of pain, but options for interventional treatment with injections.
Types of Lumbar and Sacral Spine Injection Therapy
Different injections can be used for diagnostic tools and pain relief in the sacral and lumbar regions. One injection may be used to locate the correct area in the spine, while another injection may be used to relieve pain or promote tissue repair. Our pain and spine specialists at DOCS Health utilize image-guided injections to diagnose and treat lower back and sacral pain conditions safely and effectively. Our injection therapy options for the lumbar and sacral spine include:
Injection therapy for lumbar and sacral conditions is minimally-invasive and requires little downtime or recovery. Many patients can experience a drastic reduction in their pain using injection therapy combined with other pain management modalities we offer at DOCS Health.
