Epidural Injections For Orthopedic Procedures in Wisconsin

Epidural Therapy Methods Can Help Manage Pain

Each year, countless people experience temporary back pain. But when the pain doesn’t resolve quickly, and is not relieved by methods such as rest and physical therapy, epidural injections can help.

Epidural injections provide relief by delivering medication directly to the source of pain. Epidurals can decrease inflammation and the pain associated with it. They are a good option for patients who want to avoid or are not candidates for surgery.

Epidural injections are often used when back pain is not relieved by other methods, such as:

  • Back exercises
  • Changes to the physical set-up of the work environment
  • Changes to physical activities, including work
  • Ice and heat therapies
  • Medicines
  • Physical therapy
  • Rest
  • Spinal manipulation
