Epidural Steroid Injection


At Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, where we are dedicated to providing cutting-edge solutions for pain management. If you’re experiencing chronic pain, you’re not alone, and we’re here to help. One of the effective pain management procedures we offer is Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI).

What is Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI)?

Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI) is a minimally invasive medical procedure that involves the injection of corticosteroid medication and a local anesthetic into the epidural space around the spinal cord and nerve roots. This treatment is primarily used to alleviate pain, inflammation, and discomfort caused by various spinal conditions.

  • Expertise: At Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, our team of experienced pain management specialists, led by Dr. [Doctor’s Name], is highly skilled in performing Epidural Steroid Injections. We tailor each procedure to meet your specific needs, ensuring your safety and comfort throughout the process.
  • Comprehensive Evaluation: Before recommending an ESI, we conduct a thorough evaluation of your medical history and perform diagnostic tests to pinpoint the exact source of your pain. This personalized approach ensures that you receive the most appropriate treatment.
  • Effective Pain Relief: ESI is proven to provide effective pain relief for a range of conditions, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, and degenerative disc disease. It reduces inflammation and helps patients regain their quality of life.
  • Minimally Invasive: ESI is a minimally invasive procedure, meaning it requires only a small incision or needle insertion. This results in minimal discomfort, shorter recovery times, and reduced risk compared to more invasive surgical options.
  • Holistic Approach: At Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, we take a holistic approach to pain management. ESI is often combined with physical therapy, rehabilitation exercises, and other non-surgical treatments to maximize your overall well-being.

What to Expect During an ESI Procedure?

  • Preparation: You’ll receive instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, which may include fasting for a few hours beforehand.
  • Procedure: The injection is administered with precision, guided by fluoroscopy or ultrasound for accuracy. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure.
  • Recovery: After the injection, you may experience some soreness or mild side effects, which typically subside within a few days. You can usually resume your daily activities shortly after the procedure.
  • Follow-up: Our team will provide post-procedure care instructions and schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.

Is ESI Right for You?

ESI can be a suitable option for individuals experiencing chronic pain related to spinal conditions. However, its appropriateness depends on your specific diagnosis and medical history. During your consultation at Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, our experts will discuss whether ESI is the right choice for you or if alternative treatments may be more appropriate.
