For decades, epidural steroid injections have been a vital procedure to help patients achieve back pain and herniated disc relief. The Franklin Pain and Wellness Center pain management physicians are experts in the procedure, which involves placing the cortisone medication and numbing medicine into the epidural space. The overall success of this procedure has consistently exceeded 75% in research studies for either neck, mid-back, or low back pinched nerve problems.
Outcomes with the procedure have been exceptional, with most patients achieving relief and avoiding the need for potentially risky surgery. Along with the injection, the providers also offer medication management and additional therapeutic options as well. This allows the epidural injection to relieve chronic pain.
The Epidural Injection is an outpatient procedure that takes about 30 minutes. After the procedure, the patient is able to go home within an hour. Studies performed regarding epidural injections show 75-90% good to excellent results.
The Franklin Pain and Wellness team of nurses and anesthesiologists are specifically trained in pain management and will work with your primary care physician to establish the best course of treatment for you. Contact us for more information on epidural steroid injections.
