Lumbar Sympathetic Injections


Welcome to Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, where we are dedicated to helping you find relief from chronic pain and regain control of your life. If you’re dealing with lower back pain or pain radiating down your legs, Lumbar Sympathetic Injections may be the solution you’ve been searching for.

What are Lumbar Sympathetic Injections?

Lumbar Sympathetic Injections are a specialized medical procedure designed to diagnose and treat pain originating from the lumbar sympathetic nerves. These nerves play a significant role in transmitting pain signals, and when they become dysfunctional due to conditions such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) or sympathetically maintained pain, they can lead to persistent and debilitating discomfort.


Why Choose Lumbar Sympathetic Injections at Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine?

  • Expertise: At Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, our team, led by Dr. [Doctor’s Name], is highly trained and experienced in the field of pain management. We bring a wealth of knowledge and a commitment to providing exceptional care to each patient.
  • Precise Diagnosis: Before recommending Lumbar Sympathetic Injections, we conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your medical history and perform diagnostic tests to accurately pinpoint the source of your pain. This meticulous approach ensures that we target the problem with precision.
  • Effective Pain Relief: Lumbar Sympathetic Injections have a proven track record of providing relief for a variety of conditions, including complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), sympathetically maintained pain, and other neuropathic pain syndromes. By injecting a combination of a local anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication directly into the lumbar sympathetic nerves, we can block pain signals and reduce inflammation.
  • Minimally Invasive: Our injections are minimally invasive, involving only a small needle and a minor incision. This results in minimal discomfort, shorter recovery times, and a reduced risk of complications compared to more invasive surgical options.
  • Holistic Approach: We believe in a holistic approach to pain management. Lumbar Sympathetic Injections can be part of a larger treatment plan that may include physical therapy, rehabilitation exercises, or other non-surgical interventions to address the underlying cause of your pain.

What to Expect During a Lumbar Sympathetic Injection Procedure

  • Preparation: We will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, which may include fasting for a specified period before the injection.
  • Procedure: The injection is administered with precision, often guided by fluoroscopy or ultrasound to ensure accurate placement. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure.
  • Recovery: Following the injection, you may experience some mild soreness or minor side effects, which typically subside within a few days. You can usually resume your regular activities shortly after the procedure.
  • Follow-up: Our team will provide you with post-procedure care instructions and schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
