Common Treatments & Pricing
Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection
Steroid injections are administered into the cervical spine aim to relieve pain from pinched or inflamed nerves. While the impacted nerves are located in the neck, pain often radiates to the upper extremities, including the shoulders and arms. This treatment is a more conservative option for those experiencing such symptoms, which are often caused by herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or arthritis.
Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection
Lumbar epidural injections are compositionally and procedurally the same as cervical epidural injections. However, the impacted nerves often cause pain that radiates to the lower instead of the upper extremities. Pain in the legs is a common symptom for patients with herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or arthritis of the lumbar spine.
The sympathetic nervous system controls our “fight-or-flight” response. The nerves are involved in this system can restrict blood flow, as well as increase heart rate, perspiration, and blood pressure. Certain injuries to these nerves can cause pain
and swelling. To address this issue, a lumbar sympathetic block can be administered. The minimally invasive procedure involves injecting a numbing agent and/or a corticosteroid into or around the nerves. The numbing agent aims to provide pain relief, while the corticosteroid focuses on reducing inflammation.
