Summit’s spine specialists diagnose back and neck problems and design custom treatment plans built on a nonsurgical approach. We leverage conservative methods, including a variety of specialized guided injections, to help reduce pain and improve function for a variety of conditions, including sciatica, disc herniation, and facet joint arthritis. Injections can help to relieve pain by reducing inflammation, irritation, and swelling.
An injection can also help us to identify the cause of the neck or back pain, making the plan of treatment more focused and leading to a more effective outcome. By treating immediate pain, injections can also make it easier for you to participate in a physical therapy program designed to strengthen muscles and resolve the underlying cause of the pain. The type of injection you receive will be based on your symptoms and physical examination.
