Injection – Infiltration Therapy is mainly used for acute pain. The pain is treated precisely via injections. Die Schmerzen werden mittels Injektionen oder Infiltrationen punktgenau behandelt. If the nerve root is irritated, for example if it is under X – Ray or CT Monitoring, analgesic and anti-inflammatory drugs (mainly local aesthetics combined with a small amount of cortisone) are injected into the painful area using very thin needles.
Even in herniated discs, where there is local inflammation due to the emergence of inflammatory substances, can be relieved of pain. This can be achieved with the help of infiltration into the epidural space (a layer of connective and fatty tissue that protects the spinal cord that runs directly through the spine). The treatment is also known as epidural infiltration therapy.
