An epidural steroid injection is a minimally invasive pain treatment that can help relieve neck, arm, back, and leg pain.

Safe for many areas of the body

Epidural Steroid Injections are safe to use on a variety of back pain, neck pain, and nerve pain conditions and many patients find the injection provides much-needed relief during acute pain episodes. For some individuals, an epidural steroid injection alone reduces back or neck discomfort enough to return to normal activities. For others, epidural steroid injections are used in combination with rehabilitation, such as physical therapy. 


  • Reduction of pain (primarily leg and back pain)
  • Improvement in function and mobility
  • Reduction in pain medication
  • Reduction of inflammatory proteins (chemicals contributing to pain exacerbation)
  • Delay or avoidance of surgery

Pain relief from an epidural steroid injection can range from one week to one year or more.

How Epidural Injections Work


The epidural injection procedure

During a steroid injection, a small needle is inserted into the epidural space with X-ray guidance (fluoroscopy). After proper placement of the needle is confirmed, a corticosteroid, in combination with a local anesthetic pain medication, is injected through the needle. The purpose of the corticosteroid is to minimize inflammation and swelling in the epidural space, which takes pressure off the nerves and soft tissues to provide pain relief over time. The anesthetic pain medication provides immediate relief and flushes out inflammatory proteins that may exacerbate pain.



Epidural steroid injections in the lumbar spine help to reduce inflammation related to back pain. Several conditions that cause severe acute or chronic low back pain and/or leg pain from nerve irritation can be treated with epidural steroid injections.

Conditions include

  • Lower back pain
  • Compression fracture
  • Lumbar degenerative disc disease
  • Lumbar radicular pain
  • Sciatica
  • Lumbar disc bulge/herniation
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Cervical degenerative disc disease
  • Cervical radicular pain
  • Cervical spinal stenosis
  • Cysts
  • Annular tear
  • Neuropathy
  • Lumbar disc bulge/herniation
  • Postherpetic neuralgia
