Leg Pain and The Spine

A Solution for Chronic Pain from Sciatica*

Sometimes leg pain is actually linked to the spine. Compression and inflammation of the spinal nerve in the lower back can be caused by injury, a herniated disc, the aging process, or a degenertive condition such as spinal stenosis. The result is sciatica and pain that spreads through the buttocks all the way down the legs. Also called “lumbar radiculopathy,” this ranks among the most debilitating and mobility limiting of chronic pain conditions.

Dr. Skaribas and Nobilis Health take a direct approach to pain management for sciatica.*

 

Eliminating Sciatica Pain*

Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections

Lumbar epidural steroid injections are a very effective treatment for sciatica. Steroids are highly anti-inflammatory. Additionally, targeted injections have a more powerful effect than NSAIDs and oral steroids and don’t flood a patient’s whole system with medication.

Dr. Skaribas’ priority is eliminating pain as quickly and efficiently as possible. Minimally invasive lumbar epidural steroid injections are considered safe and they work.*

An Outpatient Procedure

Experience Immediate Relief*

It’s up to the patient whether to have a local anesthetic at the injection site or to use an intravenous medication. In either case, a lumbar epidural steroid injection is an outpatient procedure and patients generally do not experience any pain.*

The doctor will determine the optimum injection site for the patient’s condition. Two injections are made for each procedure: one utilizes x-ray imaging to locate the injection site accurately and the other contains the corticosteroid medication. By targeting the injection site carefully, only the inflamed area is treated; no more medication is used than necessary.*

“My husband received a lumbar steroid injection from Dr. Skaribis one week ago and is already receiving much needed relief from his spinal stenosis. Dr. Skaribis and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful in the field of pain management!”
