Epidural Steroid Injection 

Procedural Overview

Back pain in Americans has become a very common ailment affecting their day-to-day lives. Fortunately, there are a lot of therapy and treatment methods that address this health condition, and one of them is Epidural Steroid Injection. This minimally invasive therapy treats inflamed spinal nerves giving relief from the pain in your legs, back, arms, and neck. There can be a number of plausible conditions due to which the pain can arise like bone spurs, orthopedic conditions, herniated discs, sciatica, or bursitis.

 

What to expect at Dunes Pain Specialists

Our physicians using fluoroscopy imaging technique will administer the epidural corticosteroids in the spine with pinpoint precision. Prior to that, a local anesthetic is given to provide temporary relief of the pain. The patient after the epidural steroid injection procedure is kept under observation by the physician – this is usually less than half an hour. The physician also provides the patient with necessary after-care precautions if a sedative was given.

 

One or more steroid injections might be administered if the patient’s situation is particularly severe. However, each year we will not administer more than two or three steroid injections.
