What is minimally invasive surgery?
Minimally invasive surgery (“MIS” to those in the know – which now includes you!) often refers to three main aspects: small incisions, fewer stitches and less downtime. However, things can be even less intrusive when talking about minimally invasive pain management where the doctor simply uses a small needle to inject relief medication. In this article we will highlight a few minimally invasive non-surgical techniques and show why “minimally invasive” is extremely beneficial to your recovery and overall health.

“Minimally Invasive Begins Here!”
Our founder, Dr. Rodolfo Gari, says it best: “We are experts in pain.” That other quote above is also one of Dr. Gari’s that goes right to the heart of what Florida Pain Relief Group is all about: minimally invasive procedures, maximum pain relief.

Below are 3 minimally invasive pain management options to consider:
- Trigger Point Injections. These injections temporarily numb the pain and relax the muscle, allowing for increased stretching to promote and increase blood flow.
- Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections. Epidural steroid infusions can be used to treat pain experienced in the lower back, neck, and mid-spine area.
- Facet Joint Injections. A facet injection can temporarily relieve neck or back pain caused by facet joints that have become inflamed.
