Trigger finger

Trigger finger limits finger movement. When you try to straighten your finger, it will lock or catch before popping out straight. When rest and NSAIDs fail to help, the doctor may choose to inject a corticosteroid — a powerful anti-inflammatory medication — into the irritated tendon.

Arthritis and Back Pain

Facet joint

Between vertebrae are small joints that help your spine move. One of the many causes of pain in your spine could be from your facet joints. The procedure of injecting a local anesthetic and an anti-inflammatory drug into your facet joint could relieve you of your upper, mid or lower back pain. Fluoroscopy is often used to assist the doctor in precisely locating the injection so that the medication reaches the appropriate spot and only the appropriate spot.

Sacroiliac joint

The sacroiliac joint is a joint at the buttock area that serves in normal walking and helps to transfer weight from the upper body onto the legs. Doctor may recommend a SI joint injection to try and determine if one or both SI joints are the cause of your back pain.

Peripheral nerve block

  • Occipital neuralgia (headache) – Greater occipital nerve block
  • Lower limb pain – Sciatic nerve block
  • Post shingles pain – Intercostal nerve block

Trigger point injections

  • Myofasciitis – Chronic pain involving tissue that surrounds muscles, especially those in the arms, legs, lower back and neck
  • Fibromyalgia – Symptoms include chronic pain in the muscles, and painful tender points or trigger points at certain parts of the body that can be treated with trigger point injections.
