What Is Epidural Steroid Injection?

Epidural steroid injections are a conservative treatment modality for cervical/lumbar spine pain and radiculopathy. This procedure is performed in the office under live x-ray in order to better visualize the affected area. This procedure utilizes a local anesthetic and corticosteroid which is injected around the epidural space and nerves to decrease inflammation to help improve pain and discomfort. Epidural injections are a useful treatment option for degenerative disc disease, herniated disc and spinal stenosis. Most patients can obtain relief with epidural injections for a few months and up to a year.

What to Know Before Epidural Steroid Injection

Prior to any epidural steroid injection, make sure your provider is aware if you take any blood thinner medications. You may need to stop taking these medications for several days prior to the injection. This will help reduce the risk of bleeding or bruising. Some dietary supplements also have blood thinning effects, so be sure to discuss these with us before your injection.
