Epidural Steroid Injections

Epidural Steroid Injections Clearwater

Minimally Invasive Pain Relief Option

The goal of Epidural Steroid Injections is to relieve spine and/or limb pain.

Epidural steroid injections deliver medication directly (or very near) the source of pain generation. Many patients choose them over oral steroids and painkillers which have a more generalized impact and may have unacceptable side effects.

Epidural steroid injections are minimally invasive with a short recovery period making them a great choice for immediate relief. Additionally, if the pain stems from chemical inflammation, an epidural steroid injection will help control this local inflammation aiding in pain relief.

Epidural Steroid Injections are commonly used for treating radiating spine pain from degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, spondylosis and arthritis. Other uses include the treatment of pain from post-surgical conditions, post-herpetic or post-traumatic (including intercostal) neuralgia, muscle contraction headaches, or from a sub acute inflammatory spine pain syndromes unresponsive to more conservative treatment.

Steroids inhibit the inflammatory response caused by chemical and mechanical sources of pain. Steroids also work by reducing the activity of the immune system to react to inflammation associated with nerve or tissue damage.
