Non-Surgical Treatments and Pain Relief - Montvale Health & Wellness

Injection Therapy

At Montvale Health & Wellness, we exhaust all non-surgical treatment options before moving on to surgery.

Often our experts will recommend injections to treat back pain or spine disorders. Injections can treat conditions or alleviate symptoms so that the patient can participate in other rehabilitation treatments.

Caudal Steroid Injection

Steroid injections help reduce pain and inflammation in targeted areas. A caudal steroid injection reduces irritation on the nerve roots around the tailbone. A florescent dye is first injected into the area to allow the physician to see contrast and determine the exact location of the painful area.

Conditions treated:
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Foraminal stenosis
  • Cervical radiculopathy (Pinched Nerve)
  • Lumbar radiculopathy (Sciatica)
  • Herniated disc
  • Bulging disc
  • Torn disc
  • Facet Joint Syndrome
  • Arthritis

Homeopathic Trigger Point Injection

Trigger points are essentially knots that may form in a patient’s muscle fibers. These knots are capable of causing tension, muscle spasms, and severe pain. Discomfort stemming from trigger points is often found in areas away from the actual trigger point itself, since the pain may be transferred through nerve pathways to different locales in the body.

Trigger points may be effectively treated with homeopathic injection therapy, during which a therapeutic solution comprised of several homeopathic remedies is introduced to the body. These injections differ from traditional therapies in that they do not treat the symptoms of a patient’s musculoskeletal condition directly. Instead, they revive the body’s natural healing processes so that it may fight off pain and inflammation naturally.

Lumbar Sympathetic Ganglion Block

This procedure relieves pain by blocking the nerves that are acting via the sympathetic system in the lower back. Our physicians will locate the affected area using fluoroscopy and instill a local anesthetic. Once the area is numb, a small needle will be placed from which Marcaine (long acting anesthetic) is injected.

Conditions treated:
  • Herniated disc
  • Bulging disc
  • Torn disc
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Arthritis
  • Cervical radiculopathy (Pinched Nerve)

Stellate Ganglion Block

The stellate ganglion is a group of nerves located in the seventh cervical vertebra. The stellate ganglion block reduces pain down to your arms by injecting a local anesthetic to the sympathetic nerve tissue located on either side of the voicebox.

Conditions treated:
  • Shingles
  • Postherpetic neuralgia
  • Local nerve pain
  • Traumatic injury

Sacroiliac Joint Steroid Injection

The sacroiliac joint is a large joint located in the lower back. Inflammation in this joint can cause pain particularly when sitting. A sacroiliac joint steroid injection is used to treat the pain by reducing the inflammation in the tissue surrounding the joint.

Conditions treated:
  • Traumatic injury
  • Arthritis
