Epidural Steroid Injections

An epidural injection is utilized to decrease pain in the neck and lower back, as well as radiating arm and leg pain. The injection utilizes a local anesthetic and steroid (anti-inflammatory medication) to provide you with pain relief by reducing inflammation around an inflamed nerve or disc. The epidural space surrounds your dural sac, which rests outside your spinal cord, nerve roots, and cerebrospinal fluid.
