Below are some of the pain management injections that we offer our patients to assist with both short-term and long-term pain relief. Using the most advanced diagnostics tools, technology, and treatment options, our expert pain management team can help you to choose the most effective treatment for your condition.

Facet Joint Injections

Facet Joint Injections are a relatively straightforward procedure, often conducted in-office. These injections are typically performed using x-ray guidance (fluoroscopy) to help the doctor to target the area correctly and ensure the needle is placed correctly. Some of the benefits of these injections include: 

  • Decrease inflammation caused by arthritis or joint degeneration.
  • Pain relief at the affected area. 
  • Improved mobility post-procedure.

Trigger Point Injections

Trigger Point Injections (TPIs) are an effective pain treatment option for some patients. This procedure can be used to treat painful sections of muscle in the body that contain trigger points or that are knotted due to the muscles not relaxing. Trigger points can impact surrounding nerves resulting in referred pain that can often be felt in other parts of the body. TPIs may be used to treat the following conditions: 

  • To treat muscle groups such as the neck, arms, legs, and lower back. 
  • In the treatment of fibromyalgia.
  • For relief from tension headaches.

Types Of Pain We Can Treat with Injections

Here at Saguaro Pain Clinic, we have used injections to help many patients both manage and relieve different types of pain successfully. Pain management injections can be used to treat a variety of different types of pain, depending on the specific needs of the patient. 

Injections are highly effective in the treatment and management of different types of pain that are a result of auto accidents, sports injuries, or any other work or recreational accidental injuries. With less pain and improved pain management, patients can get back to their normal day-to-day activities and start enjoying life again!
