What is an Epidural Injection for Pain?

Epidural injections for pain deliver anti-inflammatory medicine directly to the area around your spinal cord called the epidural space. Epidural steroid injections (ESIs) are commonly used to treat many different types of low back and leg pain and to relieve the symptoms of sciatica. The doctors at Memorial Pain Clinic may prescribe epidural injections as part of a comprehensive pain management and rehabilitation plan to help you “Restore Function & Relive Life”.

In addition to treating low back pain, epidural injections can also help alleviate pain in your cervical or thoracic spine.

How Long Will I Get Relief After an Epidural Injection?

Depending on your particular pain level and spinal condition, you may experience temporary pain relief from chronic symptoms ranging from a week up to a year. Epidurals work well for many adults when they are part of a comprehensive therapeutic treatment and exercise plan. The interventional pain experts at Memorial Pain Clinic explain their predicted outcome for you, and the many benefits of getting an epidural injection.

What are the Benefits of Epidural Injections?

Epidural injections deliver powerful medication directly to the source of your back pain, so they have more of an impact than oral medications. With an epidural, the medication gets there faster than if you take it orally. You also have less (if any) side effects than you would if taking oral painkillers. ESIs helps control the inflammation that contributes to your back pain.

Other benefits include:

  • Pain relief in your legs and lower back
  • Improves mental and emotional health
  • Improves quality of life
  • Minimizes need for prescription painkillers
  • Can help you avoid or delay surgery

What are the Side Effects of Epidural Injections?

As with any medical procedure, there are some risks, and though rare, they may include:

  • Infection
  • Temporary numbing
  • Headaches
  • Fever

In most cases, these side effects are temporary.

The doctors at Memorial Pain Clinic are among the most highly skilled in their profession, so you can trust them when it comes to procedures like this. When you have an epidural injection at our location in Tulsa, OK, you receive the maximum benefits with minimal cause for concern.
