However we do understand this is often very difficult and sometimes possible to do on the first initial assessment. Spinal injections that are typically used to treat pain are also used commonly to diagnose the source of your pain. The pain specialist will perform this injection under a live x-ray guidance to precisely place local anesthetic, or numbing medication, around or inside the suspected source of pain. If you obtain significant relief from this injection, it provides your physician with enough information to make an accurate diagnosis.
Once your position is confident with the diagnosis, you may be a candidate for therapeutic injections, or injections that help you treat your pain. Most therapeutic spinal injections contain a corticosteroid, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory medication. The purpose of the injection is place a small amount of this potent anti-inflammatory medication precisely where the pain begins to provide you with this kind of pain relief.
