Epidural Steroid Injections
What are Epidural Steroid Injections?
Epidural Steroid Injections (ESIs) represent a minimally invasive therapeutic procedure used to address persistent back and neck pain. These injections deliver a combination of steroid medication and local anesthetic directly into the epidural space around the spinal cord and nerves. By aiming to reduce inflammation, ESIs may alleviate chronic pain caused by various spinal conditions.
When Might You Consider Epidural Steroid Injections?
When conventional oral pain medications prove insufficient in managing persistent pain, ESIs could be analternative solution. Freedom Spine & Pain Center offers these injections as part of a comprehensive approach to managing spinal discomfort.
The Injection Process and Post-Treatment Experience
- The procedure typically involves applying a local anesthetic before guiding the needle into the targeted area using advanced imaging techniques.
- Initial relief might occur immediately after the procedure, with the full effects of the medication taking several days to manifest. Repeat injections may be recommended based on individual response for sustained pain management.
