Injection Based Procedures

Injection_based_procedures_weston_medicalWeston Medical Health Center offers a variety of minimally-invasive injection based procedures to help reduce pain, improve joint and muscle movement, and allow you to live a better quality of life. Many of these procedures work in combination with our Physical Therapy programs to provide our patients with the best possible results under their conditions. Below is a list of injection based procedures provided at Weston Medical Health Center.

 Procedures Offered:

  • Trigger Point Injection (TPI) – is a procedure used to treat painful areas of muscle that contain trigger points, or knots of muscle that form when muscles do not relax. Many times, such knots can be felt under the skin. Trigger points may irritate the nerves around them and cause referred pain, or pain that is felt in another part of the body. TPIs contain a local anesthetic that sometimes includes a corticosteroid. After the injection the trigger point is made inactive and the pain is alleviated. TPI can be used to treat fibromyalgia, tension headaches and myofascial pain syndrome.
  • Intra-Articular Joint Procedures – All natural FDA approved hyaluronic acid acts as a lubricant and shock absorber in the knee, non-surgical treatment for individuals diagnosed with OA of the knee. This program produces above average outcomes and helps delay or eliminate the need for costly and discomfort knee replacement surgery.
  • Facet Joint Injections – injects a small amount of local anesthetic and steroid medication, which can anesthetize the facet joints and block the pain.
  • SI Joint Injections – SI joint injections can accurately pinpoint and alleviate this pain. Guided by x-ray imaging, the patient  is injected with a local anesthetic into the affected SI joint to relieve pain.  This strong, long-acting medicine reduces inflammation and provides pain relief over an extended period of time.
  • Greater Occipital Nerve Injections – An occipital nerve injection is an injection of a steroid around the greater and lesser occipital nerves that are located on the back of the head just above the neck area. Occipital Nerve Injections reduce  headaches over the back of the head, including certain types of tension headaches and migraine headaches.
  • Therapeutic Injections – injections to provide pain relief, especially in patients in whom pain is accompanied by swelling and inflammation.
  • Epidural Injections – treatment option for many forms of low back pain, leg pain and sciatic pain using an epidural steroid injection in combination with Weston Medical Health Center’s comprehensive rehabilitation program to provide additional benefit.
