If you are struggling with chronic back or neck pain, you may be a candidate for an epidural injection. At Las Vegas Spine and Pain, our team of pain specialists offers epidural injections as a non-surgical option for relieving pain and improving function.
What is an Epidural Injection?
An epidural injection is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting a mixture of corticosteroids and local anesthetics into the epidural space surrounding the spinal cord. The medication is delivered directly to the source of pain, providing targeted relief.
The Benefits of Epidural Injections
Epidural injections offer a number of benefits for those struggling with chronic back or neck pain, including:
What to Expect During an Epidural Injection
Your epidural injection will be performed using X-ray guidance to ensure precise placement of the medication. You will be positioned face down on an exam table, and the skin over the injection site will be numbed using a local anesthetic. The injection will be delivered using a small needle, and you may feel a slight pressure or discomfort during the procedure.
Most patients experience significant pain relief following their epidural injection, and are able to return to normal activities within a few days. Your response to the injection will be monitored, and additional injections may be recommended if necessary.
At Las Vegas Spine and Pain, we believe in a patient-centered approach to pain management. Our team of pain specialists will work with you to develop a treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and goals, and provides the relief you deserve.
