Introduction

Epidural Steroid Injections offer a proven solution for chronic pain sufferers, especially those dealing with herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and sciatica. At Central Florida Interventional Pain Clinic in Ocala, FL, we specialize in providing effective pain relief through this minimally invasive procedure.

What Are Epidural Steroid Injections?

Epidural steroid injections are a common treatment for reducing inflammation and relieving pain associated with conditions affecting the spine. The procedure involves injecting a corticosteroid medication into the epidural space around the spinal nerves. This helps to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.

Benefits of Epidural Steroid Injections

Pain Relief

Epidural steroid injections can provide significant pain relief by reducing inflammation around the affected nerves. This can help patients manage their pain more effectively and improve their quality of life.

Improved Mobility

By alleviating pain, epidural steroid injections can help improve mobility and function. This can enable patients to return to their daily activities and enjoy a more active lifestyle.

Non-Surgical Option

Epidural steroid injections offer a non-surgical alternative for managing chronic pain. For many patients, this can be a preferable option compared to more invasive surgical procedures.

Conditions Treated

Herniated Discs

Herniated discs can cause severe pain and discomfort. Epidural steroid injections can help reduce the inflammation and pain associated with herniated discs, providing relief and improving function.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is a condition characterized by the narrowing of the spinal canal, which can lead to pain and nerve compression. Epidural steroid injections can help reduce the inflammation and pain associated with spinal stenosis, improving the patient’s quality of life.

Sciatica

Sciatica is a condition that causes pain to radiate along the sciatic nerve, which runs down one or both legs from the lower back. Epidural steroid injections can help alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with sciatica, allowing patients to regain their mobility.

The Procedure

Preparation

Before the injection, patients will undergo a thorough evaluation to determine the best approach for their specific condition. This may include imaging studies and a review of their medical history.

During the Injection

The procedure involves injecting a corticosteroid medication into the epidural space around the spinal nerves. This is typically done using fluoroscopy (X-ray guidance) to ensure accurate placement of the needle. The entire process usually takes only a few minutes and is performed on an outpatient basis.

Post-Injection Care

After the injection, patients may experience some mild soreness at the injection site. This can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and ice packs. Most patients can return to their normal activities within a day or two. It is important to follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by the medical team.
