Spinal Injections Safety

The Southeastern Spine Institute’s back and neck spinal injection treatments are subject to rigorous safety standards set by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). For more information, visit their website at scdhec.gov.

Held to a higher standard than the regulations set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), our medicines come directly from the manufacturers, not from less regulated independent pharmacies or other compounding centers. That makes the medicine we use safer and free from contamination.
