A epidural steroid injection is a safe, minimally invasive treatment for neck and back pain.
Epidurals have been utilized for decades in a variety of areas of medicine such as childbirth, surgical procedures and more recently, pain management procedures. The procedure is guided with careful precision by ongoing X-ray imaging to find the precise location to inject a small amount of powerful anti-inflammatory medication. The medication is injected into the epidural space near the nerves in the spinal canal. By bathing these nerves with this solution it will relieve pain, swelling and inflammation, allowing you to resume your normal level of activity.
