Patients in Fayetteville, NC and beyond have trusted Valley Radiology for over 50 years to provide patient-focused care and a level of expertise that’s unmatched by others. By using new research, cutting-edge technology, and the latest in radiology practices, our team of professional radiologists aims to give our patients affordable and effective care. One of the minimally-invasive procedures we offer relieve pain is ESI’s (Epidural Steroid Injections).
Reduce Spinal Inflammation and Live Pain-Free
Epidural Steroid Injections applied in the mid back (thoracic spine) or lower back (lumbar spine) are used to relieve pain from inflammation. This is done by using x-ray guidance to place a combination of anesthetic and steroids into the dura (sac around the nerve roots) to reduce inflammation in the discs and nerves of the spine. If you suffer from lower back pain, radicular pain, or sciatic nerve pain, an Epidural Steroid Injection can be used to provide almost immediate relief from lumbar pain, improve other symptoms like numbness or tingling, and minimize inflammation. When used for diagnostic purposes, ESI’s can give your radiologist a better idea of what long-term treatment can help reduce your pain, whether it be continued injections, physical therapy, or even surgery.
Conditions that are often associated with Epidural Steroid Injections include:
Degenerative disc disease
