Physicians limit the number of epidural steroid injections to a maximum of three to avoid systemic side effects of the steroids. Side effects are minimal and consist mainly of mild tenderness in the area of injection which disappears in 1-2 days. Success is dependant on the cause of the pain and how long the pain has existed. The sooner the treatment is instituted, the better are the chances of getting well. This treatment, along with analgesics and physical therapy has brought relief to thousands of patients, avoiding , in the majority of cases, the need for surgery.
How it works: A spinal cord stimulator system generates mild electrical pulses and sends them to your spinal cord via implanted leads that are attached to the generator, which is normally implanted just above the buttocks. The electrical pulses, when received by the spinal cord, replace the feeling of pain with a tingling or massaging sensation, thus reducing or eliminating the patient¹s pain. The patient can control the level of stimulation using any of the multiple custom programs that he or she sets up with the physician. Patients can have a stimulation program for when they are working, standing, sitting, sleeping, etc., based on their levels of pain during these normal activities.
