Spinal Injections Relieve Pain and Return Patients to Daily Activities

At InterveneMD, we value your time and put your needs first.

Spinal injections, or epidurals, for low back pain have been found to help relieve pain and aid patients in returning to performing daily activities according to the results of a recent study.  The study, conducted by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care Institute for Quality Care, reported that more than 78% of patients receiving spinal injections reported their pain improved and 82% reported they were able to return to performing daily activities. Additionally, 52% of patients were able to reduce their pain medication after the procedure.

The report went on to say that the amount of time a patient spends in the facility can be an indicator of patient safety and satisfaction.  The average facility time (the time from patient check in to patient discharge) for a patient getting a spinal injection was 86 minutes, with the longest being 179 minutes.

You have more important things to do than waiting for an injection.  At InterveneMD, we value your time – our facility times are less than half of the national average.
