What is an Epidural Steroid Injection?
An epidural steroid injection is a minimally invasive procedure that can help relieve neck, arm, back, and leg pain caused by inflamed spinal nerves. Epidural steroid injections may be used to relieve pain caused by spinal stenosis, spondylolysis, or disc herniation.
How Does It Work?
An epidural steroid injection places pain-relieving medicines into the space around the spinal cord and nerve roots. The injection combines a local anesthetic for immediate pain relief and a corticosteroid for greater comfort resulting in reducing inflammation and swelling. An epidural steroid injection is an effective treatment for both sort and long term relief.
