There are many reasons for pain to develop, and a solution to your pain may require lifestyle changes, dietary changes, interventions such as physical therapy, ongoing use of medications, or injections. In some cases surgery to modulate injured nerve pain ( Spinal Cord stimulation, DRG stimulation, or Intrathecal Pump therapy), or to correct an underlying problem may provide management of your symptoms.
Diagnostic injections are a test and we expect pain relief if it occurs to be measured in hours. Sometimes an injection may be targeted to a specific area on the request of a surgeon as part of their evaluation, this is also a type of Diagnostic test.
A therapy or treatment injection is focused on where your pain is located. It may take up to 10 days for steroids to become effective. If there is no relief from an injection, a plan may be developed to target a different area, or pursue other diagnostic testing.
Feelings of numbness and/or weakness are likely the result of the use of sedation or local anesthetic and will slowly wear off over the next 24 hours. If you have increasing numbness or weakness following a procedure, call the office at (813) 328-8701.
