SPINAL EPIDURAL INJECTIONS
Spinal Epidural Injections
Back and Neck pain can be the result of a number of different of issues. Pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. When the vertebrae or discs are injured or affected, pressure/irritation can be put on the surrounding nerves from inflammation. This can cause pain from the neck to travel into your shoulders/arms and pain from the back to travel into your legs. Bone Spurs, Bulging/Herniated Discs or Degeneration of Vertebrae/Discs are common causes of pain which can impact mobility and overall quality of life.
During a Spinal Epidural Injection, a local anesthetic and long lasting steroid is given near or at the source of pain using an extremely precise imaging technique known as Fluoroscopy. This helps reduce pain, inflammation/swelling, tenderness and irritation. Some benefits of Spinal Epidural Injections include: High Success Rate, Non-Surgical, In-Office same day procedure and Long Lasting relief up to a year.
When your pain is no longer temporary AND before you consider Surgery or Pain Killers come to Airport Plaza Spine & Wellness where our expert physicians may recommend a Spinal Epidural Injection as part of a Comprehensive Rehabilitation Program.
