Intercostal Injection Treatment
For proven and effective intercostal injection treatment, you can turn to the experienced pain specialists from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. An intercostal injection is an advanced interventional treatment that can be used to address pain and inflammation of the tissue around the intercostal nerves, located in between the ribs or in the chest wall. The procedure involves injecting an anesthetic and steroid medication into the tissues surrounding the intercostal nerves, under the guidance of Fluoroscopy. The anesthetic serves to provide immediate pain relief and can help to confirm the source of the pain. The steroid serves to reduce the inflammation in the tissues, leading to more long-term relief.
The physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are highly trained and experienced in performing intercostal injections. Using this minimally invasive, outpatient procedure, we help athletes find long-term relief from chronic and acute chest and rib pain, improved function and a better overall quality of life.
