Your Recommendation

Not currently a candidate for spinal stimulation

Tried injections

Pain less than 6 months

You are not currently a candidate for spinal cord stimulation. While you have tried injections, you have not been experiencing pain for greater than 6 months.

You may want to continue with injection therapy

Injections are normally performed in series of 3. If the first target location only offers partial relief, your specialist will likely try slightly different injection locations the second and third times. If your specialist has conducted a series of 3 injections and you are getting little to no relief, it might be time to consider getting a second opinion from another interventional pain specialist.

How can injections help?

Anesthetics (like Bupivcaine) and long acting steroids (like Depo-Medrol) injected directly onto inflamed nerve roots can lead to immediate pain relief. Injections are often the fastest way to relieve severe back pain.
