Epidural Steroid Injection

Epidural steroid injection

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.
