Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection Treatment

This injection is administered to alleviate pain in the lower back and legs due to swelling caused by spinal conditions. To prepare for the procedure, the patient will lay face down with a pillow under the stomach to allow better access to the epidural space in the spine. Skin and tissue around the lumbar vertebra bone is anesthetized using a local anesthetic and a fluoroscope is used to insert a needle between vertebra in the epidural space. When the location of the needle tip is confirmed and a mix of steroids and anesthetics are injected to soothe the enflamed nerve. After the procedure many patients will feel a significant amount of pain relief, however some patients may need to repeat the injection to feel the medication’s full benefits.
