A cervical epidural injection is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive treatment for neck pain that has been around for many years. Our doctor will administer a small amount of anti-inflammatory medication into the epidural space near the spine. This in turn relieves swelling, inflammation, and of course pain.
Our office generally uses this technique to help receive the following conditions :
• Cervical radiculopathy
• Chronic neck pain
• Spinal stenosis
There are of course many benefits from receiving a Cervical Epidural Injection. Did you know they’ve been around since 1986? Our office usually uses this pain relief technique for chronic neck pain and cervical radiculopathy. There is a plethora of evidence that supports its continued use in the treatment of pain. The most important aspect of a CESI is that it is a minimally invasive procedure that can provide rapid pain relief and allow patients to return to their lives before the pain begins.
1. The procedure involves injecting a corticosteroid into the epidural space.
2. Most patients require between two and three treatments.
3. The positive effects of the injection can occur within a few days. Most patients, though, begin to see results after the second injection.
