Gilbert Neurology provides patients with the best and latest care methods in neurology. Here are a few of the treatments we offer:
Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injections are used to relieve myofascial pain or pain over tender “trigger” spots often found in the neck, shoulders, or back. These injections are completed with saline mixed with 1% lidocaine (a numbing medication). Pain relief typically occurs quickly and may last approximately 1 month.
Botox for Multiple Neurologic Conditions
Botulinum toxin may be injected in small doses for various neurologic conditions. We use Botox for the treatment of medical ailments such as migraine headaches, uncontrolled blinking of the eyes, painful turning of the neck muscles, hemifacial spasms, and spasticity.
Headache Injection (Toradol/Phenergan)
Toradol is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug used for pain relief.
Occipital Nerve Block for Headaches
Occipital nerve block is typically used in patients who have pain originating from the neck and occiput area. This has been proven to stop a migraine and help patients with occipital neuralgia. The procedure takes minutes and afterwards the patient is able to drive home on their own.
Carpal Tunnel Injections
A carpal tunnel injection is a steroid injection used to help relieve the pain and inflammation of carpal tunnel syndrome.
A lumber puncture is diagnostic procedure whereby the cerebrospinal fluid is collected and used to aid in the diagnosis of several disorders of the central nervous system, such as Guillain-Barre syndrome and Multiple Sclerosis.
Skin biopsy is a test used for providing diagnostic information and monitoring peripheral neuropathies.
Pirifomis /SI Joint injections
A Piriformis injection is a steroid injection that may help reduce the inflammation and /or swelling around the nerves that pass near or through the piriformis muscle (buttock). This may reduce pain, numbness, tingling or other symptoms that may contribute to nerve inflammation, irritation or swelling.
