What are Epidural Steroid Injections and who can benefit?

An Epidural Steroid Injection is a non-surgical procedure that is performed in the office to treat pain conditions. The most common conditions treated with Epidural Steroid Injections include:

Epidural Steroid Injections are not appropriate for every patient. Your New York Pain Care Doctors may recommend other non-surgical treatments such as Physical Therapy before recommending an Epidural Steroid Injection.

What are the different types of Epidural Steroid Injections?

There are several different types of Epidural Steroid Injections. Meeting with a specialist will help you to determine which type of Epidural Steroid Injection is most appropriate for your pain condition.

The most common Epidural Steroid Injections performed by the Top Interventional Spine Specialists & Board Certified Pain Specialists at New York Pain Care include:

Caudal Epidural Steroid Injection: Treatment for lower back or spine pain that radiates to the legs. Includes conditions such as Spinal Stenosis, Radiculopathy, Sciatica and Herniated Discs.

Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection: Treatment for neck pain, upper back pain, shoulder pain and arm pain.

Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection: Treatment for lower back pain and leg pain.

What can I expect when having an Epidural Steroid Injection?

In preparation for an Epidural Steroid Injection for pain, Intravenous sedation may be administered and a region of the skin and tissue will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Using x-ray guidance, the physician will guide a needle into the epidural space and inject a combination of anesthetic and cortisone steroid solution. This steroid is an anti-inflammatory medication and is absorbed by the inflamed nerves to decrease swelling and relive pressure. The needle is then removed and a bandage is applied.

After the Epidural Steroid Injection is completed, the patient will be led into a recovery room in the office and be discharged shortly after. While some patients benefit greatly from just one Epidural Steroid Injection, more severe conditions may require more than one.
