With the new transforaminal epidural injections, up to 90% of patients receive amazing sciatica relief!
Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) December 11, 2014
Seattle Pain Relief is now offering a new, effective type of epidural steroid injection for sciatica pain relief. Transforaminal epidural injections are able to place the soothing steroid medication at the exact point where the nerve root is being pinched for optimal relief. Call (855) WASH-PAIN for more information and scheduling.
For over 50 years, epidural steroid injections have been the gold standard in pain management for relieving the pain from pinched nerves due to disc herniations and spinal stenosis. The newest tranforaminal injections use a different approach for placing the steroid medication. The Seattle pain management doctor uses image guidance to help place the medication most accurately, with the needle being placed at the exact point where the nerve root is being pinched and inflamed.
Results with epidural steroid injections for sciatica have been evaluated in dozens of studies. Most have shown excellent pain relief anywhere from 75-90% of the time. Patients may need a series of injections for the best relief.
In addition to offering epidural steroid injections, Seattle Pain Relief offers comprehensive interventional pain procedures to help patients avoid surgery and achieve pain relief over 90%. This includes radiofrequency ablation, spinal cord stimulator implants, facet blocks, Botox injections for migraine and much more.
Most private insurances are accepted at Seattle Pain Relief along with Medicare, Workers Compensation and Personal Injury Liens. Patients are seen from a broad area throughout the greater Seattle metropolitan area. Call (855) WASH-PAIN for more information and scheduling.
