About Epidural Injections
As a minimally invasive procedure, epidural steroid injections (ESI) provide an alternate option to a surgical procedure as a way to effectively diminish pain and discomfort. At Tricity Pain Associates, our team of pain management experts offers steroid injections for individuals with chronic pain that exists in the muscles and joints of the back, neck, and legs. Consisting of anti-inflammatory medication and a corticosteroid, ESI is injected near or around the location in which the pain is emitting from. This innovative procedure can be beneficial in alleviating discomfort that could be the result of various conditions, such as a herniated disc, osteoarthritis, spondylolysis, and spinal stenosis. You should not have to suffer daily with chronic pain when options, such as epidural steroid injections, exist. Learn more about this state-of-the-art treatment technique by scheduling a consultation at Tricity Pain Associates in Kyle, TX.
Steroid Injection Treatments
Before the start of your procedure, you will lie comfortably in one of our spacious treatment areas. A local anesthetic will be utilized in order to make the procedure as comfortable as possible, and the needle will then be placed into the proper location with the utilization of live x-ray technology. After the needle has been correctly positioned, the medication will be carefully injected. During the procedure, you may experience some slight pressure and after your treatment, you may need to be carefully monitored for a period of time. You could notice some slight soreness following your injections, but a cold compress can be administered to alleviate discomfort. In order to ensure the best possible results, many patients will need to receive a series of treatments, spaced approximately 1 – 4 weeks apart.
