San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) February 17, 2015
The top pain management clinic in San Antonio, Premier Pain Consultants, is now offering a new type of epidural steroid injection for the relief of sciatica and spinal stenosis. The procedure is offered by several Board Certified pain physicians as an outpatient, in conjunction with medication management, physical therapy and chiropractic therapy when indicated. Call (210) 202-4030 for more information and scheduling.
For decades, epidural steroid injections have been used in pain management to help treat the pain associated with pinched nerves. This is common with sciatica from a herniated disc pinching a nerve and also from spinal stenosis pinching on nerves as well. The pain associated with the nerve compression may be intense and disabling.
The new type of epidural steroid injection is known as a transforaminal epidural, and places the steroid medication much closer to the area of where the nerve is being pinched. It has been shown to offer success rates over 75% for those suffering and typically allows for greater activity and a decreased need for narcotic medications.
The San Antonio pain management doctors at Premier Pain are highly skilled in the new procedure and perform it as an outpatient under image guidance for the highest accuracy. Along with the transforaminal epidurals, Premier Pain offers a 25,000-square-foot facility including an Open MRI, on-site pharmacy, physical therapy and chiropractic department, along with an on-site procedure center.
Most insurance is accepted at Premier Pain Consultants, including Medicare, PPO's, some HMO's, Medicaid, Self Pay, Workers Compensation, Personal Injury and more. Call (210) 202-4030 for more information and scheduling.
