The back may look like a smooth surface, but underneath it's incredibly complex. In addition to the spine and the nerves it contains, the back contains muscles, ligaments and tendons, and any of these can contribute to pain. The good news is, most causes of back pain can be treated without surgery by using conservative and minimally-invasive approaches. One approach is injection therapy, which relieves painful symptoms as well as the underlying inflammation that can cause pain and other symptoms. Some common causes of back pain include:
Back pain diagnosis starts with a review of the patient's symptoms and a physical examination with passive and active motions to determine which movements cause painful symptoms. Diagnostic imaging using X-rays or MRIs can also help. Some types of pain can be diagnosed using facet joint injections, which administer pain-blocking medications into the spine joints to pinpoint the source of painful symptoms.
Most types of back pain can be relieved with physical therapy and injections that relieve inflammation and pain in the joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Most injections use pain medication and corticosteroids to reduce inflammation and promote healing. Some common treatments include:

Depending on the location of your pain, injections may be used to reduce inflammation and relieve pain at the specific site of injury. Common injections include:
Injections into the facet joints relieve local pain and referred pain in the buttocks and thighs.
Epidural steroid injections are used to diagnose and provide pain relief to specific areas of injury surrounding your lumbar vertebrae and discs and to provide localized treatment to the injured area.
For muscle pain that won’t respond to other treatments, local injections — using a combination of steroids and anesthetics — relieve trigger point pain.
Using a local anesthetic, sacroiliac injections offer an effective option for relief of sacroiliac joint pain that hasn’t been helped by traditional nerve blocks.
Injections offer an option to treat your pain at its source with appropriate methods that relieve pain at joints, nerves, or soft tissues.
