Epidural Steroid Injection is a technique for relieving neck, mid-back and low back pain. Steroids are injected into the epidural space around the spinal nerves, and the anti-inflammatory effect of the corticosteroid can relieve pain when that pain is caused by inflammation of the roots of the nerves branching out from the spine.
An epidural steroid injection delivers steroids, or an anti-inflammatory cortisone, directly into the epidural area of the spine. Reducing the inflammation helps to reduce spinal pain.
Epidural injections are commonly used to treat spinal pain such as sciatica – which is a pain, numbness or tingling that originates from an irritation of the nerve roots that lead to the sciatic nerve. In addition to the lower back area, epidural steroid injections can ease pain in the leg, neck and mid-spine area.
