About Epidural Injections

As a minimally invasive pain management treatment, epidural steroid injections (ESI) offer an alternative to a surgical procedure in order to alleviate discomfort. Our team of pain management experts at Tricity Pain Associates utilize steroid injections for patients who experience chronic pain in their muscles, back, neck, legs, and joints. ESI consists of anti-inflammatory medication and a corticosteroid that is injected near or around the area that is causing pain. It can effectively diminish the pain that is caused by a number of conditions, including a herniated disc, arthritis, spondylolysis, and spinal stenosis. If you have been suffering from the discomfort of chronic pain, it’s time to seek treatment in order to improve the quality of your life. Contact Tricity Pain Associates in San Antonio, TX to learn more about ESI and to schedule a consultation with one of our skilled physicians.

Steroid Injection Treatments

For the injection procedure, you will lie on your stomach as the injection areas are prepped with a local anesthetic. The needle will then be put into position with the use of a live x-ray. Once the needle is in the correct area, the medication will be injected and you may feel some slight pressure. Following the procedure, we will carefully monitor you for a period of time before you will be released to return home to recover. You may be sore for a few days after the injections, but a cold compress can be used to help alleviate discomfort. Most patients will receive secondary treatments that are typically spaced about 1 – 4 weeks apart, and results can be noticeable for weeks or even years.
