The cervical portion of the spine includes the top seven vertebrae in the neck area. When you have a neck injury or degenerative disease impacting the cervical spine, inflammation can occur. Cervical inflammation can cause severe pain and functional issues in the neck, but it can also impact the shoulder, arm and hands. At Hanowell Spine Clinic, we offer injection treatment options to reduce pain caused by cervical inflammation, including cervical epidural steroid injections.

The vertebrae and discs in the cervical spine are susceptible to injury and degeneration. Auto accidents, sports injuries and repetitive wear on the cervical spine can result in injuries like herniated discs and fractured vertebrae that cause inflammation and pain. Degenerative diseases such as arthritis and disc deterioration also cause inflammation. Swollen tissue can put pressure on the nerves. This affects not only the neck, but it also radiates pain through the shoulders, arms and hands. To offer relief, steroid anti-inflammatory medication is delivered directly to the affected cervical spine area, reducing inflammation and pain.

Non-Invasive Neck Pain Relief

Cervical epidural steroid injections offer neck pain relief without invasive surgery. The procedure can be performed at our clinics, using x-ray guided injections to precisely deliver anti-inflammatory steroid medication. Our physicians will use a local anesthetic to numb the area before beginning the injection. In most cases, steroid medication begins reducing inflammation in a few days, resulting in less pain.

Cervical epidural steroid injections can be used for pain relief while an injury heals or to relieve discomfort from an ongoing degenerative condition. If you suffer from neck, shoulder or arm pain caused by inflammation in the cervical spine, contact us at Hanowell Spine Clinic in Covington, GA. We will devise a treatment plan that may include non-invasive steroid injections for pain relief.

Patient Reviews

My knees were so bad I could hardly walk. After 3 injections no pain.

Sandra C.

Dr. Michael Hanowell has relieved my sciatica pain. I was in a wheelchair and after the first epidural I was able to walk. After a recent car accident he put several injections in my back and neck which relieved the pain greatly. He and his staff are very considerate and do everything possible to work with you on relieving your pain.

Mike D.

Dr. Hanowell treated my sciatica pain & I went from being in a wheelchair and barely able to walk to being pain free. He is very professional, caring, and conscientious. He has given me several epidurals and trigger point injections for various issues related to age and injuries and his treatments were very effective. His staff is also very professional.
