relieve neck, arm, back, and leg pain caused by inflamed spinal nerves.
Have you been experiencing back pain? Are you looking for an alternative to pain meds to treat your back pain? It is probably that time to consult with a pain specialist. Dr. Klater in Long island, NY will probably recommend ESIs or Epidural Steroid Injections as a pain relief solution.
That pain in your back is probably the result of spinal nerve irritation or inflamed vertebral disc. The steroids in the ESIs are anti-inflammatory releasing temporary relief from the pain. ESIs decrease irritation in the nerve roots. They are used as a neuropathic treatment to treat radiculopathy (Sciatica) and nerve compression. ESIs, consists of anti-inflammatory medications which reduce pain and discomfort. When used in nerve roots, they cause relief to the nerves.
Epidural Steroid Injections (ESI) can be administered through Kalter PMR Pain Management Clinic in Smithtown, NY. Kalter Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation offers pain relief to patients suffering chronic neck, back pain and leg pain caused by spinal stenosis, spondylolysis, or disc herniation. Located in Smithtown, NY Kalter PMR primarily focuses on non surgical pain management with the ability to administer injection therapy for pain.
Dr. Matthew Kalter, New York board certified pain specialist suggests Epidural Steroid Injections (ESI) as treatment for herniated or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, and recurring chronic pain from other conditions. (spondylolisthesis & Nerve Pain).
Epidural Steroid Injections don’t treat underlying conditions, but they are highly effective for treating back, neck and leg pain. A combination of saline, a local anesthetic and cortisone is injected directly into the epidural space – the area between the spinal cord and the membrane that covers the spinal cord. ESIs provide relief by reducing inflammation and flushing out materials that cause pain and inflammation.
It takes just minutes to perform the Epidural Steroid Injection procedure. While some patients experience modest pain, most report feeling nothing more than pressure. Because the ESI includes an anesthetic, most patients experience immediate relief, which will wear off after a few hours. Longer term, relief from the steroid, which reduces inflammation, may last for weeks or months. Epidural Steroid Injections may be performed approximately every two weeks if your condition warrants it.
Most patients are able to walk and resume normal activities the day after the procedure. Relief may last several weeks. Side effects from Epidural Steroid Injections are rare, and we will discuss any risks, as well as any concerns you may have, prior to treatment.
