Injections are minimally invasive procedures that introduce medication into the body through a needle. In pain management, injections relieve pain by applying medications that reduce inflammation or relax tense muscles.
Inflammation is very common and the root cause of many medical conditions. Chronic pain is most often the result of nerves becoming pinched or compressed by nearby inflamed tissues.
In pain management, injections are primarily used to administer one of three medicinal solutions:
- Steroid – Anti-inflammatory medication
- Anesthetic – Numbing agent
- Botox – Relaxes muscle contractions
Steroids and anesthetics are often mixed and applied as one medication, providing temporary numbing relief while the steroid reduces inflammation.
Injection procedures are generally very brief and require minimal recovery time at home.
