As a minimally invasive pain management treatment, epidural steroid injections (ESI) are an alternative to surgical procedures that alleviate discomfort in muscles, back, neck, legs, and joints. These injections consist of anti-inflammatory medication or a corticosteroid and a specific type of numbing solution. The injections effectively diminish the pain that can be caused by a number of conditions, including:

  • Disc Herniation
  • Nerve Impingement
  • Arthritis
  • Spinal stenosis

Additionally, ESIs are an effective procedure for patients who do not want to undergo surgery. This treatment may be an initial therapy before pursuing more advanced treatment options, including minimally invasive lumbar decompression or spinal cord stimulation, while still avoiding surgery. At Pain Zero, our team is dedicated to helping patients improve their quality of life. Please schedule an appointment, and learn more about epidural steroid injections (ESI).

As a non-operative and effective treatment, we administer epidural steroid injections at our office in a private treatment room. During your appointment, our expert pain management doctors at Pain Zero will prepare the area with a local anesthetic. We will use advanced imaging technology to allow us to properly place the needle. Next, we administer the ESI directly into the area that causes pain.

Following the injections, our physicians will monitor you for a short time then release you to resume everyday activities. Our group recommends arranging transportation as you should avoid driving for the next 12-24 hours. In most cases, patients may feel mild discomfort after the treatment, but please call us immediately if you start to experience any allergic reactions. If you are sore, apply a cold compress to help alleviate discomfort. Secondary treatments are typically spaced apart as results can last for weeks to years.

If the ESI provides inadequate relief, our physicians can offer alternative therapies two weeks from the procedure to allow time for the medication to take effect or decide collectively to pursue other therapies.

Discussions about treatment and care plans will be discussed before and after each intervention.

I've been coming here for 4 months now after trying to manage my back pain issues with every other treatment and medicine that my previous specialists offered from May 2022 until Nov 2023. In these 4 months I've had more improvement in mobility and pain relief than i did in all of 2022 and 2023. I've also seen a significant weight loss from being able to move better, cook my own food, and work again. Pain Zero also offer medicine when needed between procedures and more importantly they listen to the issues you're having and provide safe and effective pain relief. I wish I would have came here 2 years ago when my issues first started, but I'm thankful to have found a great doctor and pain management center now. Why I would suggest Pain Zero over a place that rhymes with Northo Oro for spine and neck issues through my personal experience. (Dr. C and his orthopedic team at "Northo Oro" are awesome!) I feel Dr Taif at Pain Zero listened to my issues and concerns with the pain and offered options he felt was best for me. I was very hesitant after many short lived & underwhelming procedures at the other places. Pain Zero offers all the same out patient surgical procedures as the bigger ortho centers. The difference in that is the big centers have around 30 people on staff and PZ has about 5. So the costs of the procedures are far less and you don't have an audience in the room either like the other place.
