A cervical epidural steroid injection is effective in treating neck pain, which is a common problem we see in our Chicago area pain management clinic. Neck pain is caused by several factors including recent trauma or old injury, disc misalignment or herniation, poor posture,congenital issues or even a sudden movement or jolt.
In our office, we carefully review imaging films of each patient and discuss options for treating cervical pain. We may recommend cervical spine epidural injections as they can offer longer term pain management than pain medication alone. Coordination of care with physical therapists and reviews of patient data from orthopedists, spine surgeons, neurologists and chiropractors enable our pain management services expert team to offer many options for neck pain patients.
We understand how neck pain affects your daily life and hinders your home, social and work lives. We offer real treatment plans individualized for each patient. Our specialists have seen hundreds of neck pain patients and realize each patient has a different presentation. We respect those differences and carefully discuss treatment options that won’t interfere with other medication the patient may be on.
