Minnesota Workers Compensation - Epidural Injections

epidural.jpgYou just sustained a Minnesota Workers Compensation low back  or neck injury and your doctor has recommended an epidural injection.  You may be asking yourself what is an epidural injection and how do they work.

An epidural steroid injection delivers steroids directly into the epidural space in the spine. The injection sometimes contains additional fluid (local anesthetic and/or a a saline solution) is used to help 'flush out' inflammatory mediators from around the site that may be a partial source of pain.

The epidural space surrounds the dural sac of the spine and is filled with fat and tiny blood vessels. The dural sac surrounds the spinal cord, nerve roots, and cerebrospinal fluid (the fluid that covers nerve roots).

Some of my clients have reported immediate pain relief following this procedure while others have complained of increased pain.  Like all medical treatment, epidural injections are not a "sure thing".  Most injections last a few weeks, months or can even result in resolution of your symptoms entirely. Having personally undergone epidural injections and then back surgery, I can attest that the procedure did provide me with some back belief prior to undergoing surgery.
