Will the procedure work?

Procedures are only offered to  patients who we think will benefit from it. But, as with most things in life, there are no guarantees. Results vary from individual to individual. With that said, we do have a high success rate of treating, alleviating and eliminating pain. Our goal is always to help you gain a better quality of life.

Will I get permanent pain relief after the procedure?

Again, results vary from individual to individual. The relief may last from hours to days to weeks to months and even years depending on several factors.

What can I expect after the procedure?

Two types of medications are usually given: local anesthetic (numbing medicine) and steroid (anti-inflammatory). These medications are injected under fluoroscopic guidance (X-ray). After the procedure, you will notice an immediate relief from the local anesthetic lasting several hours. The steroid usually takes effect at a slower pace, peaking 3-5 days after the injection. If the nerve is really irritated, the pain may temporarily worsen before getting better. Depending on your response to the initial procedure, a repeat procedure may be offered to you.
