Neck pain treatments
Epidural Steroid Interlaminar Injections (ESI)
In an ESI (Epidural Steroid Interlaminar Injection) a steroid is injected into the epidural space around the irritated nerves in your neck. The injection calms the inflammation and reduces pain. It takes 2-7 days to feel the full effects and how long they last depends on each patient. Side effects are few and rare. The goal is to reduce your pain enough so that you can make progress in your rehab program.

Cervical Facet Joint injections
Medial Branch Nerve Blocks
PRP Injections (Platelet Rich Plasma)
