Epidural Injections From Pain Doctors

A patient who is suffering from lower back pain or sciatic nerve pain may benefit from a type of injection called an ‘epidural injection.’ This type of injection is designed to provide lasting relief from the pain caused by the sciatic nerve in affected patients. This injection is not a regular type of injection. Patients must be put under general anesthesia for a very short time in order for the needle to be inserted in the epidural space of the spine. The procedure itself is relatively fast, but patients may need a series of three or more injections only weeks apart to get any sort of lasting results. Many times the injections will work and other times they don’t work at all. More info: pain doctor Clifton
