At PhysMED, we understand the complexities of pain management and strive to offer comprehensive solutions to enhance your well-being. Among our specialized treatments is the provision of Epidural Injections – a highly effective method for relieving acute and chronic pain, enabling you to embrace a more comfortable and active lifestyle.

What's in an Epidural Injection?

Epidural injections typically contain a combination of a local anesthetic and a corticosteroid. The anesthetic provides immediate pain relief by numbing the affected area, while the corticosteroid reduces inflammation, offering longer-term pain relief. This dual-action approach targets pain at its source, offering a powerful solution for various types of discomfort.

How Do Epidural Injections Work?

The process involves carefully injecting the medication into the epidural space of the spine. This space lies outside the dural membrane surrounding the spinal cord and nerve roots. The injection can effectively reduce inflammation and pain signals in the spinal nerves by targeting this area. The precise application ensures maximum impact with minimal intrusion, making it a preferred choice for many pain-related conditions.

Are There Any Risks?

While Epidural Injections are generally safe, it's important to understand the risks. These may include tenderness at the injection site, headaches, and, in rare cases, infection or nerve damage. At PhysMED, your safety is our priority. Our experienced team will discuss all potential risks, ensuring you are fully informed and comfortable before proceeding with treatment.

Efficacy and Duration

The relief from Epidural Injections can vary depending on the individual and the underlying condition being treated. Many patients experience significant pain reduction within a few days of the injection, with the effects potentially lasting for several months. Our goal is to help you achieve lasting relief, and we will work closely with you to monitor your response to the treatment and adjust as necessary for optimal results.
