Doctor for Back Pain:
Epidural Injection for Neck and Low Back Pain Relief & More
If you have herniated discs, neck or low back pain or numbness and tingling in your extremities, an epidural injection could help you get up and running again! Our pain doctor, Dr. Yen, who is board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and has a sub-specialty in Pain Medicine, will work with you and our whole-body integrative team to deliver you neck pain relief, low back pain relief and more. Instead of opting for surgery, an epidural steroid injection can help relieve your pain by helping your inflamed nerve to reduce swelling and inflammation.
Why Are Your Nerves Inflamed? A Steroid Shot Can Help Heal
Spinal nerves can become inflamed due to narrowing of the passages where the nerves travel as they pass down or out of the spine. This narrowing of the spinal passages can occur from a variety of causes, including disc herniation, bone spurs, thickening of the ligaments in the spine, joint cysts, or even abnormal alignment of the vertebrae. When this happens, you are bound to experience pain and discomfort. An epidural for neck pain or back pain can give you the pain relief you have been looking for!
How Does an Epidural Injection Work?
The epidural space surrounds the spinal canal and provides cushioning for the nerves and spinal cord. A steroid shot, or an epidural steroid (cortisone) injection is placed into the epidural space. This injection has a very potent anti-inflammatory action that can decrease pain and allow patients to improve function. It bathes your nerve to help bring down inflammation and swelling.
