Our Teams Board Certified Family Medicine Doctor – Dr. Rodrigo Castro

Back pain affects everyone and can range from mild to severe and short lived to long lasting.  Having a proper diagnosis and treatment plan is essential.

Treatment of Spine Conditions – Outpatient Injections

Fluoroscopically guided lumbar epidural, facet, and SI injections.

An epidural steroid injection (ESI) is a minimally invasive procedure that can help relieve neck, arm, back, and leg pain caused by inflamed spinal nerves due to spinal stenosis or disc herniation. Medicines are delivered to the epidural space, which is a fat-filled area between the bone and the protective sac of the spinal nerves. Pain relief may last for several days or even years. The goal is to reduce pain so that you may resume normal activities and a chiropractic or therapy program.
