Epidural Steroid Injections in Scottsdale
A Holistic Approach to Pain Management from Physicians Who Care
Epidural steroid injections (ESI) can treat the severe cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and caudal areas of the spine. These corticosteroid injections include a numbing anesthetic delivered directly into a spinal nerve to relieve inflammation and compression. At Orion Pain, our interventional pain management physicians provide ESI to help alleviate spinal pain.
Ideal candidates for ESI include those with spinal stenosis, spondylolysis, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, or those who have sustained traumatic spinal injuries. ESI allows patients to partake in physical therapy more actively so they can resume their normal activities as quickly and safely as possible. The procedure is done using X-ray technology to find the precise location of the painful area. A needle is inserted into the epidural space towards the inflamed nerve root.
Achieve Spinal Pain Relief with Epidural Steroid Injections from Pain Management Experts
When you come to Orion Pain for ESI, you can expect some soreness at first at the injection site, but over-the-counter painkillers such as Tylenol can ease that discomfort as you heal. Results may take time to appear, so you should be mindful of your pain levels to evaluate the effectiveness of the procedure for your particular condition. Some patients may need additional ESI treatment for optimal results.
We understand how debilitating spinal pain is and how it makes healing a challenge. With ESI treatment, you can achieve substantial pain relief. Contact our Scottsdale, AZ office online today to learn more about ESI or schedule a consultation with our pain management experts.
