Epidural Steroid Injections

Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI) in the Cervical Spine

This injection treats the pain of an inflamed nerve in your cervical spine. It relieves nerve swelling. If you have a herniated disc, spinal stenosis or some other problem that’s pressing on a nerve, it may help you.



Caudal Epidural Steroid Injection

This outpatient procedure is an injection of a steroid-anesthetic medication through an opening in the sacrum. The medication can reduce swelling and inflammation of irritated spinal nerves. The injection takes only a few minutes to complete.



Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

This injection procedure is performed to relieve low back and radiating leg pain. Steroid medication can reduce the swelling and inflammation caused by spinal conditions.



Lumbar Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection

This outpatient procedure is an injection of a steroid-anesthetic medication. The medication can reduce swelling and inflammation of irritated spinal nerves. This procedure is performed to relieve pain in the lower back and pain that radiates from the back to the legs. The injection takes only a few minutes to complete.



What Type Of Conditions Can Be Treated?

Conditions in the neck, mid back and low back can be treated. These include herniated discs, protruding discs, degenerated disc, osteoarthritis of the spine, spinal stenosis, and scar following neck or lower back surgery. If you are suffering from neck pain that radiates into the arm, or back pain that is radiating into the legs, epidural may be helpful.

What If You Do Not Get Relief From The Epidural Injections?

If this injection does not relieve your pain, other structures may be causing the pain. These could include the joints, ligaments, or muscles surrounding the spine. You may require other imaging studies or other diagnostic injections to better identify and treat the source of pain.

Back pain is not a gift, but fascinating doctors who could treat back pain and pinched nerves are! Dr. Khaimov helped me get back on my feet through physical therapy and an epidural steroid injection. The staff is amazing and the doctors are very knowledgeable! Great experience! Definitely recommend this center!
