Transformational Injections Q & A

What are transformational injections?

Transformational injections are powerful pain management treatments designed to dramatically minimize pain. They’re often used if an epidural isn’t effective or if an alternative treatment just hasn’t been beneficial. 

A transformational injection involves delivering clinical-grade anti-inflammatory medications, such as steroids and cortisone, as well as numbing solutions, directly into your spine via injection. This direct approach allows your orthopedist to get the medications as close to discs, joints, and dural sacs in epidural space as possible.

What happens during a transformational injection treatment?

Able Orthopedic & Sports Medicine provides in-office transformational injection treatments for chronic back pain, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and other pain-causing conditions. During your transformational injection procedure, you need to lie face down or on your side on the examination table.

After cleansing your injection site, your orthopedist carefully numbs the area with a small injection. You may feel some prickling or burning during this time, but the uncomfortable sensations last only a few seconds. 

Your doctor ensures you’re properly positioned under the X-ray machine and injects a specialized dye into the targeted area. This contrast shows up on the X-ray (fluoroscopy), so your provider can ensure the needle is in the best location to deliver medications.

The final step involves delivering your transformational injection treatment, which takes just a few minutes. Your orthopedist then covers the injection site with a bandage and counsels you on post-treatment care.

Is there any downtime after a transformational injection treatment?

Transformational injection treatments have been heavily tested and proven to be safe and effective for resolving complex pain and inflammation. While you should experience a dramatic improvement from your symptoms in as quickly as a few hours after your transformational injection treatment at Able Orthopedic & Sports Medicine, it’s important to relax and take it easy the day of your procedure.

You’re going to need to have someone drive you home and stay with you for the rest of the day. In most cases, you can return to all of your regular activities the day after your transformational injection treatment.
