At Florida Pain Institute, Dr. Thaiduc Nguyen performs minimally invasive interventional pain management procedures for Space Coast patients seeking relief from chronic pain. Patients rely on Dr. Nguyen to provide expert medical intervention with individualized treatments to relieve pain and restore their quality of life.
One such patient had been suffering from severe sciatic nerve pain in her neck, back, and spine for at least three years, and her condition was progressively worsening. Prior to consulting with Dr. Nguyen, she’d had a titanium plate placed in her neck to mitigate pain. Unfortunately, the intervention had not worked.
Based on the patient history and thorough examination, a proven alternative pain relief treatment was recommended, and over the course of three months, Dr. Nguyen administered a series of cervical epidural injections to the patient.
The results were life-changing.
After years of enduring chronic pain and unsuccessful procedures, the patient was now pain free — and without the use of any addictive opioid medications. Here’s what she had to say about the treatment:
“Dear Dr. Nguyen, I want thank you and your wonderful staff. For the first time in years, I am pain free. It feels wonderful. No need for any pain medication. I have been pain free since all these injections. It feels wonderful. Yea! Thank you again.”
What are Cervical Epidural Injections?
These injections relieve pain caused by a pinched nerve (or nerves) in the cervical spine. Conditions such as herniated discs and spinal stenosis can compress nerves, causing inflammation and pain. The medication injected is a combination of numbing medicine (anesthetic) and anti-inflammatory (cortisone/steroid) that helps relieve pressure and decrease the swelling of nerves.
Cervical epidural injections are administered on an outpatient basis. Some patients need only one injection to experience significant pain relief; in other cases, two to three injections are needed, performed weeks apart.
