Feeling trapped by persistent back or neck pain that's impacting your daily life? An Epidural Steroid Injection at the Center for the Functional Restoration of the Spine could set you free. Look to two of New Jersey’s foremost orthopedic experts, Dr. Steve Paragioudakis and Dr. Marc Menkowitz, for this highly effective, minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure to help you manage pain and identify its source.

A Simple Solution for Lasting Results

An Epidural Steroid Injection is a procedure used to treat and diagnose pain associated with various spinal conditions. It is particularly beneficial for patients suffering from conditions such as:

  • Sciatica
  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Irritated nerves

During the procedure, a combination of local anesthetic and steroid drugs is skillfully injected either directly into the collection of nerves in the back or into the joint spaces of the spine.

The Three-Fold Benefits of Epidural Steroid Injections

1. Reducing Nerve Inflammation

Steroids injected into the epidural space help alleviate nerve inflammation, providing relief from leg pain, discomfort, and other symptoms.

2. Temporary Pain Relief

The steroids act as temporary pain relief, allowing your body to initiate its natural healing process.

3. Diagnostic Tool

In addition to pain management, Epidural Steroid Injections serve as valuable diagnostic tools. By blocking specific nerves, they pinpoint the precise source of your pain, enabling targeted treatment.

Many patients experience significant pain relief after just one Epidural Steroid Injection. However, in some cases, multiple injections may be necessary to maximize the benefits of the treatment.
