A CT-guided spinal injection is a nonnarcotic, nonsurgical option for severe back pain caused by sacroiliac joint pain, bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica / nerve pain and lower back arthritis.
This can be a viable option if you wish to delay back surgery and the risks that come with any surgery. It can also be an effective treatment if you have had back surgery but are still experiencing pain. Our goal is to reduce your pain by at least 50%, but many patients report a 90% to 100% reduction in pain.
Unlike using conventional X-rays to guide or map an injection location, the CT scanner provides 3D images for targeting in real time. With an exact placement your discomfort is lessoned, as is the time it takes to complete the procedure.
