Epidural Steroid Injection
Advantages of Epidural Steroid Injection
Spine pain can be very difficult to manage with medication alone. Spine-related pain can be caused by arthritis or a “slipped” disc. Epidural steroid injection is a method Dr. Farrell uses to deliver strong anti-inflammatory medication directly to the painful area within the spine. This procedure is always performed under x-ray guidance to ensure the safe delivery of the medication.
How We Can Help
The procedure for an epidural steroid injection is relatively simple. First, the area is cleansed and numbed with an anesthetic. Then, a thin needle is inserted into the epidural space. The steroid medication is then injected and the needle is removed. The whole procedure is typically quick and simple.
What to Expect
The effects of the injection may take a few days to be felt. Some patients may experience immediate relief, while for others, it may take a few days for the steroid to take effect. The effects can last for several weeks or months, depending on the severity of the condition. No matter your situation, we’ll take the time to carefully assess your needs and recommend a plan that’s tailored just for you.
