Abstract

Irwin RW, Zuhosky JP, Sullivan WJ, Panagos A, Foye PM, Sable AW. Industrial medicine and acute musculoskeletal rehabilitation. 4. Interventional procedures for work-related cervical spine conditions. This self-directed learning module outlines the use of interventional techniques in the treatment of neck pain with and without referred pain into the arm.

This article specifically focuses on interventions used to diagnose or treat the conditions commonly seen in patients with neck pain or referred pain into the upper limb. Techniques reviewed include the use of botulinum toxin injections in the treatment of myofascial pain, cervical zygapophyseal joint injections and radiofrequency neuroablation in the treatment of posterior column disorders, and epidural steroid injections in the treatment of cervical radicular and referred upper-limb pain.
