Injection Therapy Treatment in Michigan
An epidural steroid injection is a possible treatment option for many forms of neck, back and leg pain. A combination of local anesthetic, such as Lidocaine or Bupivacaine, and steroid is injected into the epidural space that is believed to be the source of your pain. The steroid will help reduce any inflammation in this area and relief from this procedure can last anywhere from days to over a year depending on your condition.
This procedure is done using sterile technique and performed under live x-ray (fluoroscopy). The patient can also choose to receive mild sedation, with the approval of their physician, in order to help ease the discomfort of the procedure.
