Holistic Epidural Injections for Pain Management in Nassau County

How Epidural Steroid & Facet Injections Work

Epidural steroid injections involve the delivery of a corticosteroid and an anesthetic agent into the epidural space of the spine. This targeted approach aims to reduce inflammation and pain associated with conditions such as herniated discs and spinal stenosis. Facet joint injections, on the other hand, target the small joints located along the sides of each vertebra. These injections deliver a combination of anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication directly into the affected facet joint, providing relief from facet joint arthritis or injury.

Conditions Treated

Epidural steroid and facet injections are effective in managing various spinal conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Facet joint arthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease
