ATLANTA, GA, January 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The doctors at Atlanta spinal center Atlanta Spine & Alternative Pain Management Center know that epidural steroid injections are one of the most effective spinal pain management therapies available. However, they often encounter patients who are unaware of the therapy and its uses.
Powerful Pain Relief
An epidural steroid injection is a minimally invasive procedure that is designed to help reduce swelling and pain related to the inflammation of the spinal nerves. Typically, the injection fluid is composed of a combination of a corticosteroid and a local anesthetic or pain relief medication.
This fluid is injected into the epidural space, which is the area around the spinal cord and its nerve roots, but not the actual membrane that contains the spinal cord and nerve roots.
The pain relief medication or anesthetic will start to help alleviate your pain immediately while the corticosteroid begins its work. With time, the epidural steroid injection will be able to decrease your nerve inflammation and provide relief. The duration of this pain relief depends on the patient and the severity of their condition.
The Atlanta pain clinic doctors at Atlanta Spine & Alternative Pain Management Center have discovered that when epidural steroids are combined with physical therapy, they can provide successful long-term pain relief for the majority of patients.
If you have been suffering from lumbar spinal stenosis, radiating lower back pain or severe leg pain, a regimen of epidural steroid injections in Atlanta may be an effective course of treatment for you.
