In Minutes, Feel Relief From Herniated Disc, Sciatica or Spinal Stenosis, Without Surgery
Epidural Steroid Injections (ESIs) are an effective treatment for inflammation associated with lower back-related leg pain, or neck-related arm pain. In both conditions, the spinal nerves become inflamed due to narrowing of the passages where the nerves travel as they pass down or out of the spine. In just a few minutes, without surgery, an ESI can provide relief from herniated disc, sciatica or spinal stenosis.
How is the ESI Performed?
- Using the latest and safest technology, an experienced pain management physician accurately targets and delivers an injection of a steroid-anesthetic medication that relieves pain, swelling and inflammation of irritated spinal nerves.
- After the skin and tissue of your lower back is numbed, the physician carefully guides a needle into the open space where the irritated nerve roots are located.
- A contrast agent is injected and a fluoroscope x-ray device confirms that the tip of the needle is positioned properly.
- A steroid/anesthetic medication is injected to bathe the irritated nerve roots.
When Can You Expect Relief?
You may feel significant pain relief after just a single 10-to-15-minute procedure.
