Steroid Epidural Injections

Steroid Epidural Injections

Epidural Steroid Injections (ESIs) are a common method of treating inflammation associated with low back related leg pain, or neck related arm pain. In both of these conditions, the spinal nerves become inflamed due to narrowing of the passages where the nerves travel as they pass down or out of the spine. The inflammation can be caused by disc protrusions (herniations) or a variety of arthritic conditions causing irritation of the spinal cord or nerves traveling down the arms or legs.
