Epidural Steroid Injections for Treating Pain 

Living with pain can be nothing short of insufferable. Pain is often debilitating, preventing you from doing the things that you love or need to do to provide for yourself and your loved ones, as well as miserable to face on a daily basis. When you are suffering from pain, working with a doctor who specializes in pain control is a must. At Pain Control Associates, LLC, our doctors can help you to understand your options for pain relief, including the use of epidural steroid injections for treating pain. To learn more about your options for pain relief and how we can help, please schedule an appointment with our office at your convenience. 

What Are Epidural Steroid Injections?

Epidural steroid injections are one of the most common treatments for back pain and alternatives to back surgery. These injections involve injecting a steroid medication and an anesthetic directly into the epidural space where the pain is concentrated. The epidural space surrounds the nerve roots and spinal cord. Usually, epidural steroid injections are used after other non-surgical treatments have been tried, such as pain medication, physical therapy, and lifestyle and behavior modifications. Epidural steroid injections are often part of a comprehensive pain management plan.

The Benefits of Epidural Steroid Injections

Epidural steroid injections are one of the best options for bringing pain relief to patients struggling with chronic back pain. These types of injections are used to help improve mobility and function in the back, as well as a person’s legs; to reduce inflammation around the nerve roots, which helps to control pain; and to allow the patient to participate in physical therapy and other treatment options as a result of pain control, which contributes to long-term improvement and success. In addition to these benefits, when a patient is being treated with epidural steroid injections, they also may be able to reduce their use of over-the-counter and prescription pain medications, enjoy a greater level of mobility and movement in their day-to-day life, postpone or eliminate the need for surgery, and more.

Are Epidural Steroid Injections Right for Me?

Epidural steroid injections may help you by reducing pain and allowing you to return to a level of normalcy in your life by moving without pain. But before you decide that epidural steroid injections are the best option for you, it’s important to talk to a doctor who can review your case and your medical history and develop a comprehensive pain treatment plan. At Pain Control Associates, LLC, we take time to get to know our patients and develop a pain management strategy that is effective and based on our patients’ needs.
