Mass General offers spine injection, a minimally invasive, image-guided therapy to help treat pain in the neck, back and other areas of the body. Learn more about this interventional radiology treatment.
After the minimally invasive, image-guided therapy, you will receive discharge instructions. Most people can leave the hospital right away.
For your safety, someone should drive you home after the procedure. If you must drive, we may need to monitor you for 30 to 60 minutes before you can leave. You should take it easy for the rest of the day. For 5 to 7 days, avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous activities. If you are unsure of any activities, check with your doctor.
