EpiDural Steroid Injections
An epidural injection delivers steroids into the epidural space around spinal nerve roots to relieve pain – back pain, leg pain, or other pain — caused by irritated spinal nerves.
Musculoskeletal conditions like sports injuries, chronic pain, or injuries that have limited your physical ability can be treated by a physiatrist, or rehabilitation physician, who is a medical doctor that specializes in nonsurgical treatment. At Connecticut Orthopaedics, our board-certified physiatrists take a whole-body approach to learn how your injury or condition has impacted your life and apply treatments to reduce pain and improve movement. Make an appointment to meet with one of our Connecticut physiatrists and see how we help keep you moving forward.
Our physiatrists diagnose and treat conditions, prescribe physical therapy and medications, perform office injections, epidural injections, and perform EMG/Nerve Conduction Studies to evaluate the function of your nerves.
Our team is here to help with your bone, joint, muscle, or nerve ailment. If you have chronic pain, an illness or disability that’s limited your movement, or if you’re contemplating surgery to relieve pain, make an appointment to meet a member of our physiatry team in Connecticut. We’ll see you quickly and begin a holistic evaluation of your pain to see how nonsurgical treatment may benefit you.
If you need surgery, rest assured that our physical medicine doctors will refer you to one of our skilled orthopaedic surgeons for treatment.
