Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints pain doctors hear every year. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, about 80 percent of the U.S. population experiences lower back pain at some point in their lives. The pain may come on suddenly or build up slowly, worsening over time. No matter the source, severity or longevity of your back pain, now you can find relief at advanced pain management. The experienced pain doctors there administer lumbar epidural steroid injections that reduce pain, decrease inflammation and allow you to heal.

When you’re dealing with upper leg or lower back pain, your top-rated pain doctor at pain clinic may recommend a lumbar epidural steroid injection as part of your rehabilitation treatment plan. A time-tested method of treatment, the lumbar epidural injection reduces both pain and inflammation. Although the effect is usually temporary, lasting from one week to up to several months, the benefits can literally get you back on your feet, especially when you’re in acute pain.

As you progress through your back pain rehabilitation program, strengthening and stretching injured muscles and tissue, you can receive relief from a lumbar epidural steroid injection up to three times a year. But make sure you receive your injection from an experienced professional who uses a fluoroscopy or x-ray for accurate placement. You can trust the pain management doctors in New York because they use the latest tools and equipment available.

How a Lumbar Epidural Works

Your spinal cord, cerebrospinal fluid and nerve roots all rest inside the dural sac. Encasing your dural sac is a space filled with small blood vessels and fatty tissue that act as a type of buffer. This area is called the epidural space.

Using a solution that usually consists of steroids, lidocaine or some other local anesthetic, and saline, your doctor carefully inserts a needle into the epidural space of your lumbar spine. Because inflammation is chemically induced and often a significant factor in your pain, the saline flushes out the aggravating components while the lidocaine numbs the pain. The steroids reduce the inflammation.
