What Treatments Can Help Relieve My Pain? 

Because of all the damage pain can cause, the medical team at East Tremont Medical Center offers solutions to reduce or eliminate your pain.  

  • Epidural Nerve Block: This corticosteroid injection helps reduce inflammation and pain caused by sciatica, herniated discs, and spinal stenosis. This treatment provides pain relief instantaneously. It’s recommended you receive a series of three injections within a six-month time frame. 
  • Facet Injections: The medical team can provide this injection to block back pain. It’s most useful in dealing with pain caused by a back injury, arthritis of the spine, or mechanical stresses. 
  • Knee Injections: Because osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease, it’s likely that if you have it, you’ll have knee problems. The medical team at East Tremont Medical Center injects corticosteroids directly into your knee joint to reduce inflammation and pain.
  • Botox Injections: Botox is fantastic in alleviating pain for up to four months. It’s most commonly used for myofascial, back, or neck pain.
  • Intramuscular Injections: Intramuscular injections are great for pain relief because the medication is absorbed faster into the bloodstream.
  • Synvisc-One® Injections: This injection helps reduce osteoarthritis knee pain because it lubricates and cushions your knee joint.
