Diagnostic Imaging of Milford is proud to offer diagnostic and treatment services to patients with back and/or neck pain. Back and neck pain management services are available to patients throughout Milford, Connecticut, and West Haven, Connecticut. Patients can contact Diagnostic Imaging of Milford to learn more about these services.
Back and/or neck pain can result from a number of different causes. Some of the most common causes of back or neck pain include straining the muscles or ligaments, osteoporosis, arthritis, bulging or ruptured intervertebral discs, and irregularities of the spine. Some of these conditions are chronic and develop over time, while others occur because of an accident or injury.
Following an injury, tissues in the back and neck try to heal on their own. Patients may be able to aid the healing process with rest, ice, and other at-home treatments. However, if the patient’s pain isn’t improving, an appointment with Diagnostic Imaging of Milford may be necessary. Likewise, patients who develop pain over time without a clear cause, such as a car accident, should consider making an appointment for evaluation.
When a patient comes to Diagnostic Imaging of Milford with back pain, the first step is to diagnose the cause of the pain. Depending on the patient’s symptoms and medical history, doctors may recommend an MRI, CT scan, ultrasound, x-ray, DEXA scan, and/or arthrogram. Each of these diagnostic tests provides different information about the health and integrity of the spine, joints, intervertebral discs, and other structures that may contribute to back and neck pain.
Diagnostic Imaging of Milford offers steroid joint injections and epidural steroid injections to patients with back and/or neck pain. Doctors use steroid joint injections to reduce inflammation and reduce pain in the joints caused by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, frozen shoulder, and other conditions. Epidural steroid injections are used to treat pain in the back or neck by reducing inflammation around the spinal nerves. Doctors recommend epidural steroid injections to patients with bulging or ruptured discs, spondylolysis, vertebroplasties or spinal stenosis. Both epidural steroid injections and steroid joint injections may be used in combination with other treatments, such as physical therapy and medication.
