Methods and Treatments We Offer At Kennedy Health Clinic
At Kennedy Health Clinic, we provide a comprehensive range of advanced methods and treatments to effectively manage musculoskeletal pain. Our pain management specialists are highly skilled in utilizing various techniques, including:
Trigger Point Injections
We offer trigger point injections to alleviate pain and discomfort caused by trigger points, which are localized areas of muscle tightness and spasms. By injecting a small amount of medication directly into these trigger points, we help relax the muscles and provide relief.
Sacroiliac joint dysfunction can lead to significant lower back and buttock pain. Our specialists perform sacroiliac injections, which involve injecting a local anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication into the sacroiliac joint to reduce pain and inflammation.
Facet Joint Injections
Facet joints, located in the spine, can be a source of pain and limited mobility. We administer facet joint injections, targeting the affected joint with a combination of anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication to provide relief from pain and improve joint function.
Medial Branch Blocks
Medial branch blocks are diagnostic injections used to identify and treat pain originating from the facet joints. By injecting a local anesthetic near the medial branches of the spinal nerves, we can determine the source of pain and provide targeted treatment.
Transforaminal Epidural Injections
Transforaminal epidural injections target the area around spinal nerve roots as they exit the spinal column. This procedure involves delivering a combination of corticosteroids and anesthetic medication into the epidural space to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.
Intralaminar Epidural Injection
Intralaminar epidural injections involve delivering medication into the epidural space through a needle placed between the laminae of the vertebrae. This procedure aims to reduce pain and inflammation associated with conditions such as herniated discs and spinal stenosis.
Caudal Epidural Injection
Caudal epidural injections are administered into the caudal region of the spine to target lower back pain caused by conditions like herniated discs or spinal stenosis. This procedure delivers medication into the epidural space to provide pain relief and improve function.
Radiofrequency of Spine, SI, & Knee
Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive procedure used to provide long-lasting pain relief. By delivering heat energy to specific nerves, we can disrupt pain signals and provide relief for chronic spine, sacroiliac (SI), and knee pain.
Post Knee Replacement Relief with Radiofrequency of Knee Nerves
After knee replacement surgery, some individuals may experience persistent pain. We offer radiofrequency ablation of knee nerves to specifically target and alleviate pain, allowing for improved recovery and function.
Nerve Block Injections
We provide nerve block injections for various nerves to manage pain in specific areas of the body. This includes Stellate, Sphenopalatine, Trigeminal, Lumbar Sympathetic, Carpal Tunnel (median nerve), Suprascapular, Sciatic, and Ankle nerves. These injections help block pain signals and provide targeted relief.
Our pain management specialists perform joint injections for multiple joints, including Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist, Finger, Hips, Knees, Ankle, and Feet/Toes. By injecting corticosteroids or hyaluronic acid into the affected joint, we aim to reduce inflammation, improve mobility, and alleviate pain.
At Kennedy Health Clinic, we believe in tailoring our treatments to meet the unique needs of each patient. Our pain management specialists will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment.
