When you experience pain throughout the lumbar area, there can be many signs, including inflammation, pain, tingling, and numbness. In some cases, tears in the lumbar epidural space can inflame the nerve roots and even cause the discs to bulge, further exasperating the problem. At Houston Pain and Spine, our experienced team can work with transformational epidural steroid injections to help reduce inflammation and pain throughout your lumbar epidural space and improve your quality of life.
What Are Transformational Epidural Steroid Injections?
A transformational epidural steroid injection involves a mixture of anesthesia and corticosteroid medications directly into the epidural space surrounding the affected nerves of the spine. These medications reduce inflammation and pain and can be used to treat various spinal conditions, including:
- Herniated Discs
- Spinal Stenosis
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Post-Surgical Pain
Transformational Epidural Steroid Injections offer this minimally invasive treatment option to significantly improve the lives of individuals suffering from these spinal conditions by targeting the underlying inflammation and reducing pressure on the affected nerves. During the injection, Dr. Asif Chaudhry, MD will insert a thin needle directly into the epidural space and use advanced X-rays, such as fluoroscopy, and contrast dyes to ensure proper needle placement.
Here are some critical points about transformational epidural steroid injections:
- Precise Targeting: Under our care, the injections are carefully administered by our skilled medical team to ensure the medication reaches the appropriate areas for targeted pain relief.
- Inflammation Reduction: The corticosteroid medications help to reduce inflammation in the affected nerve roots to relieve pressure and ease pain symptoms.
- Long-Lasting Relief: These injections can provide long-lasting relief from pain, allowing patients to experience improved mobility and better quality of life.
- Minimally Invasive: This procedure uses minimally invasive techniques, resulting in minimal discomfort, a shorter recovery time, and reduced risk compared to traditional open surgeries.
