Pain and inflammation originating from the nerves and joints of the cervical spine (neck region) can often be eliminated or helped immensely by undergoing a procedure known as an epidural steroid injection. This injection is utilized to deliver medication to the identified area that will assist in reducing or eliminating pain caused by inflammation to the nerves and surrounding joints. This type of procedure can actually serve to be a diagnostic tool by helping to localize the source of the symptoms.
Proven Back Disc Care
Epidural steroid injections may not completely eliminate all symptoms be it immediately or permanently but can serve to significantly aid in pain reduction allowing increased comfort and function with activities of daily living.
It will be very important for you to follow your physicians instructions regarding back pain exercises or modification of your current medication intake (if any) to minimize risks of this procedure. For example, you should cease taking any type of blood thinning products such as aspirin, or Coumadin. You should also stop anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, Aleve or any other prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory. The best practice is to fully inform your treating physician of any and all medications you are currently taking and then follow instructions on temporary modification of these.
