Back and leg pain could be keeping you from living your life comfortably and many times, it can seem like there is no solution. Steroid injections are a combination of pain relief medications and a corticosteroid. The corticosteroids are a powerful anti-inflammatory medicine that helps to relieve inflammation and swelling. By doing so, it helps to alleviate some of the pressure from your soft tissues and nerves, thus reducing your overall pain. Thanks to the anesthetic, it provides you with immediate relief from your pain. Put an end to your leg and back pain and schedule your epidural steroid procedure with an Ambulatory Surgery Center at I Need A Surgery.
If you have tried a number of different treatment options, but none of them seem to be doing the trick, a lumbar epidural steroid might be the solution you need. Dealing with pain in your legs is bad enough, but not having a solution only makes it that much worse. The corticosteroid will help to relieve pain in your legs by reducing inflammation and swelling.
With a lumbar epidural steroid injection, the spinal canal is injected with the solution into the space surrounding the nerve roots and spinal cord. Normally, imaging tests are done before you are actually given the injection. They are used for identifying where the nerve roots are actually being squeezed. Throughout the injection, an x-ray is used for guiding the needle placement.
Since the procedure only takes less than a half hour, you are able to return home the same day. You are monitored for 20 minutes following the injection before being released. For the rest of the day, you will need to rest. Most individuals are able to go back to their normal activities the day after the surgery.
I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $1,600, versus having to pay $16,000 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
