Epidural Steroid Injections

Epidural Steroid Injections – Treating Work Injuries

Epidural steroid injections are a procedure where a steroid is injected into a space between the vertebrae and dural sac.  This is designed to reduce pain in the region and help the patient proceed with healing and physical therapy without pain.   It is designed to reduce swelling in the area, as well.    

Are Epidural Steroid Injections Effective?

Usually, the standard course of treatment for a back injury is as follows: rest, ice, modifying activities and physical therapy.  When symptoms persist, an MRI may be recommended.  However, depending on the MRI, your doctor delivers a series of epidural steroid injections.

During an epidural steroid injection, a corticosteroid injection uses a local anesthetic to provide pain relief.   Specifically, it is injected into the space between the disc, spinal cord and spinal nerve (the epidural space.)  Typically, reducing inflammation from a herniated or bulging disc is the major reason for injections.

 

Epidural Procedure

The procedure uses a mild sedative and outpatient facility under x-ray guidance.  So, you should not drive the rest of the day.  Also, some people experience an increase in pain temporarily.

Some people obtain immediate relief, but others relief requires a series of three injections.  Unfortunately, many people do not respond to injections at all.   However, it is common to try injections prior to exploring more invasive treatments like surgery.

It turned out to be the best decision I have made in a long, long time.

I got injured at work. Trying to deal with the insurance company became overwhelming mainly because I needed surgery and they would not respond to my calls or emails. I researched local attorneys and decided to choose Gearhart Law Group mainly because it was smaller, I liked the information I read and I felt I might get more individual attention. It turned out to be the best decision I have made in a long, long time. Beth Gearhart made me feel as though I were her only client. She responded to my emails immediately, every time. She explained the whole process from the beginning and everything unfolded exactly as she explained it would. The process took time but I received the surgery I needed and in the end was very surprised by the large financial settlement I received due to Ms. Gearhart’s expertise. I highly recommend Gearhart Law Group.

I would highly recommend Beth to anyone needed a Workers Compensation Lawyer.

From the moment I called Beth, I knew I had made the right decision. She returned my initial phone call very promptly and was sensitive to my case and situation. I had an injury in Georgia, but live in New York so the case was complicated and unique. I found her to be extremely knowledgeable about Georgia Workers Compensation laws which is what I needed assistance with. I would highly recommend Beth to anyone needed a Workers Compensation Lawyer.
