San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) December 11, 2014
Top San Antonio pain management clinic, Premier Pain Consultants, is now offering a new type of epidural steroid injection for effective sciatica relief.

Call (210) 202-4030 for more information and scheduling.
For a few million Americans every day, sciatica causes disabling pain that may be burning in nature or feel like electrical jolts. Spinal stenosis may also cause considerable pain as well due to pinched nerves. For over 50 years, epidural steroid injections have been a gold standard treatment for patients. They achieve excellent pain relief between 75 and 90% of the time.
Premier Pain Consultants, the top pain management clinic in San Antonio, is now offering three different types of epidural steroid injections. The newest addition to the mix, transforaminal epidural injections, are performed as an outpatient with image guidance for the highest level of accuracy possible.
The San Antonio pain doctor places the medicine along with numbing medicine, which often achieves relief right away. Within one to three days, the steroid effect "kicks in" and may provide weeks to months of relief. Patients may need to receive a series of epidurals every couple weeks for six weeks for the best relief.
Premier Pain Consultants accepts most insurance and has an impressive array of diagnostic and treatment options at one location. This includes an in-house MRI, pharmacy, EMG/NCV testing, physical therapy, chiropractic, and procedure center.
The pain doctor will evaluate each patient's specific condition to decide which type of epidural injection is indicated for the best chance of relief. Dozes of studies have looked at epidural effects on sciatica, with the vast majority showing excellent results with minimal complications.
