Cervical Epidural Injections

Neck Pain Management in Los Angeles and Sacramento

There are seven vertebrae in your neck that make up the cervical spine. In between the bony vertebrae are sponge-like discs, which act as shock absorbers. There are also joints, called facet joints, between each vertebra. The discs and facet joints are subject to damage from arthritis, whiplash, sports injuries, overuse, and work-related accidents. Damaged discs and enlarged facet joints can encroach the area where the spinal nerve exits, leading to pain in the neck, shoulders, and arms. Epidural injections with steroids or biologics can decrease the pain.

Dr. Yun uses advanced imaging to precisely inject medications into the space around your cervical spinal cord. The anti-inflammatory effect from steroids and the regenerative effects of biologics can decrease your pain and help you return to your activities.

Cervical epidural injections are considered minimally invasive and may help you avoid or delay spine surgery. These injections may also help if surgery has failed to relieve your pain adequately. Call California Pain Center at (855) 985-7246 to find out if cervical epidural injections could be useful for your situation.
