About Steroid Injections
Made from anti-inflammatory medicine, our team uses epidural steroid injections (ESI) to help reduce pain. Steroids have a variety of different formulas, which usually include a specific type of numbing solution, such as lidocaine. For patients who suffer from chronic or acute pain because of an injury, sciatica, or degenerative disc disease, we might recommend epidural steroid injections to alleviate the painful symptoms associated with these conditions. Additionally, ESIs are an effective procedure for patients who do not want to undergo surgery or pursue more advanced treatment options, including spinal cord stimulation. At Tricity Pain Associates in Corpus Christi, TX, we are dedicated to helping patients feel more comfortable with everyday activities. Please call us to schedule an appointment and learn more about epidural steroid injections (ESI).
"I am so grateful for Tricity Pain Management they actually listen and care. I had a bad experience with another Pain Management years ago with a very extensive shoulder surgery and so you could say it was so good to have a a PA like James Houston to take care of me. Daniel his assistant is super kind as well. I wished my insurance company Atena cared like TriCity. This has been a very tough and trying season of my life. If you have a issue share it and they will listen. Thank you for caring during it."- A.L. / Google / Aug 18, 2022

"I am happy there. Dr. is going the extra mile. I have been to other Doctors no one tried as hard. You have to realize they can only do so much. The other place lost my x-ray and never ordered another. You will be sorry if you leave"- M.C. / Google / Jul 19, 2021

As a fast and effective treatment, we administer epidural steroid injections at our office in a private treatment room, and usually, it only takes us around 10 – 15 minutes to complete. During your appointment, our expert pain management doctors use advanced imaging technology, allowing us to properly place the needle. Next, we administer the ESI directly into the area that causes pain. Following the injections, our physicians will monitor you, then release you to recover at home. Our group recommends arranging a ride because you should avoid driving for the next 12 hours. In most cases, patients may feel mild discomfort after the treatment, but please call us immediately if you start to experience any allergic reactions.
To help patients feel more comfortable, epidural steroid injections are an ideal treatment for those who don't want to pursue more invasive procedures, such as surgery. Please contact Tricity Pain Associates in Corpus Christi, TX to schedule a consultation.
