Spinal Epidural Injections
We offer Spinal Epidural Injections for patients who have lower back pain and Sciatica. This injection is quite common and is an essential component of non-surgical control of lower back pain and sciatica.
The injection provides patients with relief from pain and is commonly combined with a comprehensive rehabilitation program to help with further pain relief. A patient with lower back and leg pain is a typical candidate for epidural back pain injections and treatment.
Benefits of a Spinal Epidural Injection
The injection is given near or at the source of pain and thus has a very focused impact on that particular area (unlike painkillers or oral applications). Spinal Epidural Injections can help control inflammation to further facilitate pain relief.
How a Spinal Epidural Injection Works
The injection puts steroids directly into the epidural space within the spine. Sometimes other fluids are used to help catalysts for inflammation near the source of the pain. The steroid reduced pain works to decrease swelling and tenderness.
