Abstract

Spinal pain is a common condition leading to significant disability and high cost. Spinal injections have been demonstrated to be effective short-term treatments with cost-utility superior to numerous other treatments, including surgical procedures. Appropriate patient selection--based on clinical and imaging finding-and the use of image guidance associated with technical precautions improve the safety and effectiveness of spinal injection and overall patient outcomes.
