Epidural Steroid Injection
Relieve leg and lower back pain with epidural steroid injections.
Chronic pain can keep you from everyday activities and opportunities to heal. We provide epidural steroid injections to help patients get their life back.
Epidural steroid injections provide patients relief from chronic pain in their legs or lower back caused by injury or sciatica. A steroid is injected into the spine between the vertebrae and the space surrounding the spinal cord and nerves.
What to Expect from an Epidural Steroid Injection
This is an outpatient procedure using local anesthetic. A needle is used to inject medication into the space near the spine in the lower back.
The pain reduction is short-term, lasting from one week to one year. Temporarily easing pain allows patients to experience the mobility necessary to start physical therapy. This means they’re finally treating the source of pain to find a long-term solution.
