An epidural steroid injection is a common treatment option for treating many forms of lower back pain, neck, arm pain and leg pain. This treatment can be highly effective since it delivers anti-inflammatory medication and pain relief directly to the source of the problem.
Epidural steroid injections are used to decrease the inflammation associated with a variety of conditions including:
- Herniated disc
- Spinal stenosis
- Degenerative disc disease
- Chronic neck and back pain
- Bulging discs
- Recurrent pain following surgery
An epidural steroid injection is an injection of a numbing medicine and steroid medication into the epidural space.
