Back Pain

Conditions within the spine—such as a herniated disc—can cause inflammation that puts pressure on the nerves which results in numbness, tingling or pain. LVI offers a series of epidural and facet injections that treat the inflammation with lasting effects. Lower back and leg pain caused by swelling around the sympathetic plexus can also be treated.

Joint Pain

Pain within the hips, knees, ankles, heels, elbows and shoulders are treated with a number of techniques, including steroid injections, facet injections or viscosupplementation, which reduce inflammation and relieve pain within the tendons and soft tissues within joints. Lakeland Vascular Institute also treats sacroiliac (SI) joint pain caused by pregnancy, weight gain, arthritis and other conditions, as well as pain within the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

Postherpetic Neuralgia (PHN)

PHN is the most common complication of shingles. This condition affects nerve fibers and skin, causing burning pain that lasts long after the rash and blisters of shingles disappear. PHN in the chest wall can be treated with intercostals nerve block.

Abdominal pain caused by cancer or pancreatitis

These conditions can cause pain in the celiac plexus, a bundle of nerves that surrounds the abdominal aorta. A celiac plexus block is an injection of pain medication by one of our board-certified interventional radiologists that relieves abdominal pain that may result from cancer or pancreatitis. If you or someone you know is suffering from abdominal pain, contact our Lakeland, FL pain management facility at (863) 577-0316. 

Muscle spasms and knots

A piriformis injection of BOTOX® can help to relax the muscle and reduce pain within the buttocks and posterior legs caused by piriformis syndrome. Trigger point injections are another technique Lakeland Vascular Institute surgeons use for treating muscles that do not relax, and may form “knots” beneath the skin in different areas of the body, including the neck, shoulders, back and pelvis.

Migraine headaches

In addition to preventing wrinkles, BOTOX® is now a popular treatment for chronic migraine headaches. For adults with 15 or more days of migraines per month that last 4 or more hours, an injection of BOTOX® at 7 key areas of the head and neck can alleviate and prevent headaches. These injections are typically administered at 12 week intervals. If you or someone you know suffers from migraines in or near Lakeland, FL, please schedule a consultation with the Lakeland Vascular Institute. Call (863) 577-0316 today.

Other conditions

Nerve pain, pain caused by tarsal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia and other conditions may be treated with interventional pain management radiology techniques such as trigger point injections and nerve blocks.
