Neurology at Arnot Health
People suffering from neurological conditions have complex needs requiring a range of services and support from skilled professionals. The Arnot Health Neurology Program is committed to providing comprehensive care for brain and spine disorders and traumatic injuries, lower-back disorders, and other neurological diseases. We offer a range of diagnostic options, treatment capabilities, and a level of skilled specialty care not available anywhere else in the area.
A neurological condition is a disorder resulting from damage to the brain, spinal cord, or other parts of the nervous system. Sometimes these conditions are present from birth, and others are caused by illness or injury. There are hundreds of neurological conditions, some relatively common, like stroke or multiple sclerosis, and many others that are much rarer. Whatever the case, skilled care can mean the difference between success and suffering.

Neuro Interventional Procedures
- Facet Block
A facet block is an X-ray procedure that involves an injection of short and long-acting local anesthetic and steroid into the facet joint in the neck or lumbar region. It can be done either for diagnosis or for therapy.
- Epidural Injection
An epidural injection is an X-ray procedure where local anesthetic and, at times, a steroid are injected into the epidural space for the treatment of pain syndromes.
- Nerve Block
A paravertebral nerve block is an X-ray procedure where a local anesthetic and/or steroid is injected along the nerve root, usually in the neck or lumbar region. This examination is done for diagnosis or therapy to alleviate pain.
Discography is an X-ray procedure with a contrast medium containing iodine. It is injected into the disc, either in the neck or in the lumbar region. This examination is done to determine whether the disc is the cause of symptoms.
