Epidural Steroid Injection

At Holistiq Spine & Orthopaedic Clinic, we understand the debilitating effects of persistent pain, and we’re here to offer you effective solutions tailored to your needs. Epidural steroid injections (ESIs) are one such solution, providing targeted relief for a range of painful conditions. With our expertise and commitment to patient care, we’re dedicated to helping you reclaim your life from pain.

What are Epidural Steroid Injections?

Epidural steroid injections (ESIs) are a minimally invasive procedure used to alleviate pain and inflammation in the spine. By delivering a combination of corticosteroid medication and a local anesthetic directly into the epidural space, ESIs can effectively reduce swelling and irritation around the spinal nerves, providing significant relief for patients suffering from various conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.

The Benefits of Epidural Steroid Injections

  1. Targeted Pain Relief: Unlike oral medications that may take time to reach the affected area, ESIs deliver medication directly to the source of pain, providing rapid and targeted relief.
  2. Improved Functionality: By reducing inflammation and alleviating pain, ESIs can help improve mobility and functionality, allowing you to participate more fully in daily activities and enjoy a better quality of life.
  3. Minimally Invasive: ESIs are performed on an outpatient basis and typically require only a brief recovery period, allowing you to resume your normal activities shortly after the procedure.
  4. Long-lasting Results: While individual responses may vary, many patients experience significant and long-lasting pain relief following epidural steroid injections, with effects lasting for weeks to months.

Understanding the Risks

While epidural steroid injections are generally safe and well-tolerated, like any medical procedure, they carry some risks. These may include:

  • Temporary Pain at the Injection Site: Some patients may experience mild discomfort or soreness at the injection site following the procedure. This typically resolves within a few days and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
  • Risk of Infection: Although rare, there is a small risk of infection at the injection site. To minimize this risk, our clinic adheres to strict sterilization protocols and maintains rigorous hygiene standards.
  • Temporary Changes in Blood Sugar Levels: In patients with diabetes, epidural steroid injections may temporarily affect blood sugar levels. If you have diabetes, it’s important to discuss this risk with your healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure.
  • Rare Complications: While extremely uncommon, rare complications such as nerve damage, dural puncture, or allergic reactions to the medication may occur. Our experienced medical team is trained to recognize and manage any potential complications promptly.
