The first step in an effective pain management treatment is a full evaluation of your condition. This will allow Dr. Rovner, New Jersey’s leading board-certified spine and orthopedic surgeon, to determine what treatment will give you the relief you so badly need. Providing some of the best pain management New Jersey has to offer.

Trigger Point Injections for Pain Relief

Some types of chronic pain can be relieved with trigger point injections, followed by a specific set of physical exercises. This is an appropriate treatment for muscle-related pain, associated with points in the muscles and connective tissue that have tighter muscle bands causing chronic pain. Breaking the cycle of pain with trigger point injections is just one of the options offered at our clinic and works to reduce the inflammation in knotted or tight muscles in the arms, legs, back or neck.

The treatment involves injections made up of a mixture of medications that serve to reduce the inflammation causing pain. It relaxes the tight muscles to help increase blood flow to the treatment zone and promote healing.

Prior to the injections, local anesthetic is applied to make the treatment comfortable to experience.

BOTOX Injections For Pain Relief

While BOTOX is generally known as a cosmetic treatment, the product can be highly effective in treating certain types of chronic pain. Physical issues such as chronic back pain, headaches, and muscle spasms can frequently be alleviated with targeted injections of this neurotoxin. BOTOX injections may be the treatment that will help you achieve relief from arthritis pain, stiff neck, lower back pain from various physical conditions, nerve pain, muscle spasms, or myofascial pain (related to muscles and connective tissues).

BOTOX treatments for chronic pain are both fast and effective. It requires a few days for the neurotoxin to take effect, with results that can last for three to six months, or longer. This treatment should be followed with physical therapy exercises to strengthen the affected area.

Nerve Root Blocks For Chronic Pain Relief

Some patients who suffer from chronic pain can achieve real relief with nerve root blocks. This treatment involves injecting anesthesia and steroids into (or close to) a nerve to reduce inflammation, providing temporary relief from chronic pain. In some cases, nerve blocks can be part of a diagnostic program to identify the exact cause of chronic pain.

The injections target the root of the nerve where it exits the spine. It is with a real-time visualization of the area to ensure the injection site is identified correctly. The treatment may involve minor side effects, which can typically be relieved with an ice pack. The results in pain relief require a few days, while the steroids in the injections do their work in reducing inflammation.

What is Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain is defined as a painful condition that lasts more than 12 weeks, according to the NIH (National Institutes of Health). Unfortunately, the source of the pain can be very difficult for a general practitioner to isolate, and a typical treatment is a prescription for pain medication. The reduced range of motion, flexibility, strength, and stamina can lead to disability in many cases. Every effective treatment is tailored to the individual patient – there is no cookie-cutter solution. You deserve to have a pain-free life, and we are here to help.

If you are suffering from back or neck pain, it is crucial for you to receive a professional diagnosis as soon as possible.
