Back pain is often caused by inflammation in and around the lumbar spine. It can be caused by back injuries to the vertebrae or spinal discs. The source can also be degenerative disc disease, arthritis or another spinal disease. Reducing the inflammation can help reduce pain in the back, hips and legs, improving your ability to stay mobile and enjoy your life. Hanowell Spine Clinic offers lumbar epidural steroid injections that can minimize lower back pain and inflammation for temporary back pain relief.

Inflammation is the body’s natural response to protect an injured area of the body. Unfortunately, the inflammation also puts pressure on tissues and nerves, causing pain, weakness and other symptoms. Lumbar spine disorders are common, as the lower back is susceptible to degenerative disease and injuries. Repairing lumbar spine issues through surgery may not always be recommended due to the invasiveness and risk of the procedure. Injection therapy can be an option to minimize pain and improve mobility for patients who opt to use minimally-invasive treatments for their back pain.

Lower Back Pain Relief

Lumbar epidural steroid injections are used to deliver a local anesthetic and steroid medication directly to the area of the lower back with inflammation. Our spine specialists use an x-ray guided needle to deliver the medications to the targeted area in a quick, in-office procedure. The local anesthetic can offer immediate pain relief that will wear off in a few hours. However, the steroid will begin reducing inflammation over the following days, offering months of anti-inflammatory relief to minimize lower back pain.

If you suffer from lower back or sciatic nerve pain, a lumbar epidural steroid injection may offer relief from your symptoms.

Patient Reviews

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

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.

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.
