In an ideal world, back pain would not exist. Or, one might wish that all cases of back pain could be resolved through physical therapy and chiropractic care (with a little acupuncture added for pain relief). And for some patients, this type of care is exactly the ticket for providing long-term relief from back pain.
Other patients are not so fortunate. For some, severe pain may stop the rehabilitation process before it even starts. When back pain is immobilizing, it’s not only life-altering and demoralizing, but it may also make physical therapy or other practices impossible.
It is our unwavering goal to help patients find relief from pain and to rehabilitate with the most conservative, least damaging options possible. We want you to use therapeutic exercise and chiropractic adjustment to get better. One way that Monmouth Pain makes this possible is through the use of long-lasting steroid (corticosteroid, or cortisone) injections. The most common of these is the Epidural Steroid Injection. By providing long-lasting, localized pain relief, Epidural Steroid Injections often make the impossible possible—they allow those with disabling back pain to move again and to begin the rehabilitation process.
Epidural Steroid Injections are administered in our Shrewsbury, Freehold, Wall, and Lacey NJ pain management office. Click here to learn more about Epidural Steroid Injections in Monmouth County.
