Costovertebral Joint Injections

Thoracic costotransverse and costovertebral joints are small joints located in pairs where the ribs join the mid-back.

The small joints connecting the ribs to the sternum in the front or spinal column in the back can be a source of pain which is sometimes confused for a heart attack in the chest area or feel like a knife is stuck in the back. With fluoroscopically guided injections with a variety of medications we can alleviate this pain.
