Conditions treated with spinal injections
Spinal injections can effectively treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Herniated discs: When a disc's inner material protrudes and presses on nearby nerves, causing pain and inflammation.
- Spinal stenosis: When the spinal canal narrows, compressing nerves and resulting in pain, numbness, or weakness.
- Spondylolisthesis: To alleviate pain and discomfort caused by the displacement of one vertebra over another.
- Spinal arthritis: To reduce inflammation and pain associated with degenerative joint disease.
