Shoulder Injections in Tulsa knows that whenever you come in to visit a pain management specialist, you will undergo a thorough assessment. The physician will ask you several questions about your pain, perform a physical examination and order any necessary studies including x-rays, MRIs, CAT scans, etc. This detailed evaluation will provide your physician most of the necessary information to make a diagnosis of your condition. However, it is often very difficult sometimes impossible to be 100% accurate about the diagnosis by this initial assessment. Spinal injections that are typically used to treat pain are also used as a way to diagnose the source of your pain. The pain specialist will perform this injection under a live x-ray guidance to closely 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 physician is confident with his or her diagnosis, you may be a candidate for therapeutic injections, or injections that help treat your pain. Most therapeutic spinal injections contain a corticosteroid, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory medication. The purpose of the injection is to pick place a small amount of this potent anti-inflammatory medication precisely where the pain begins to provide you with pain relief. We truly offer the latest techniques and state-of-the-art equipment for all of our pain management treatments.
