Eliminate Low Back Pain for Good

The majority of back pain symptoms stem from inflammation due to an acute injury or overuse of the muscles, joints, or tendons. Understanding and adhering to proper posture and lifting techniques can decrease your chances of sustaining a back injury, such as a fracture, herniated disc, or strained muscle. However, not all causes of back pain are as easily preventable; pain can also arise from a chronic condition, such as scoliosis, or a condition that has developed over time, such as osteoarthritis.

If you’re experiencing pain in your lower back, a minimally invasive epidural injection, performed by the pain management doctors at Sports Medicine North, may be the right procedure for you. An epidural steroid injection places anti-inflammatory medicine into the epidural space surrounding your lumbar spine, helping to decrease inflammation in the nerve roots and reduce pain in your back and legs.

"Lumbar epidural injections have been highly successful in reducing pain for many patients," explains Dr. Joseph J. Evans, interventional pain management doctor at Sports Medicine North.

Using X-ray guidance, Dr. Evans is able to confirm correct placement of the medication during a lumbar epidural injection.

If you’re experiencing back pain, call (978) 309-3066 to schedule an appointment with one of the interventional pain management doctors at Sports Medicine North to find out if this procedure is right for you.
