Spinal Injections Explained

Spinal injections, or epidural steroid injections, deliver steroids directly into the epidural space in the spine to decrease inflammation of the nerve roots and reduce pain in the back or legs of the patient. The duration of the relief provided ranges from a period of a few months to years, depending on intensity and cause of your pain. Advanced Ortho Sports’ specialists offer traditional steroid injections, trigger point injections for joints, and homeopathic pain injections. Biopuncture is the latest homeopathic injection technique and works by naturally calming inflammation and pain without side effects. Studies have shown biopuncture to be as effective as oral anti-inflammatory medication.

Spinal Epidurals Help Many Conditions

Spinal epidurals can be used to treat any number of conditions from chronic joint pain to regional pain syndrome. A discogram, is often performed to determine whether a patient’s back pain is stemming from one or more discs and what would be the best course of treatment. Depending on a patient’s specific condition, there are a number of various treatments available including Intradiscal Electrothermal Therapy (IDET) and Lumbar Transforminal Epidural Steroid Injections. IDET can be used to relieve lower back pain resulting from disc diseases while Lumbar Transforminal Epidural Steroid Injections are injections of steroid-anesthetic medication.
