Lumbar Steroid Epidurals
Lumbar steroid epidurals are an advanced interventional spine treatment that can be used to treat low back pain and Sciatica caused by herniated discs, pinched nerves, Spinal Stenosis and other chronic back pain conditions. This outpatient procedure involves injecting a combination of steroids and anesthetic into the epidural space surrounding the affected nerve roots under the guidance of Flouroscopy. With lumbar steroid epidural injections, many patients find relief after just one injection. Others may require two to three injections to achieve the maximum benefit.
