Whether you are treating a bout of arthritis or calming the discomfort of a sprained ankle, using heat or cold to provide relief can be helpful. Knowing what to use and when is important for the best results. Here are some ideas to help make those painful conditions less discomforting.
Atlanta Cervical Epidural Steroid Injections
Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is Atlanta’s trusted leader in cervical epidural steroid injections. We are an orthopedic spine and sports medicine practice featuring a dedicated team of interventional spine physicians and orthopedic specialists. Our physicians are dedicated to using the most minimally invasive methods possible to treat complex chronic and acute pain conditions and injuries.
A cervical epidural steroid injection is a non-surgical treatment that can be used to alleviate pain in the upper spine/neck caused by irritated nerves. The interventional spine treatment involves injecting a combination of steroids and anesthetic into the epidural space surrounding the affected nerve roots under the guidance of Flouroscopy. This procedure is commonly used to treat pain and inflammation caused by a pinched nerve, herniated disc or Spinal Stenosis in the upper region of the spine. Many patients find relief after just one injection. Others require two to three injections to achieve the maximum benefit.
