Epidural Steroid Injections

Epidural Steroid Injections

At Hattiesburg Clinic Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, we offer epidural steroid injections as a non-surgical treatment option for neck, arm, back and leg pain. During an epidural steroid injection, the steroid medication is injected near the spinal cord.

There are two different types of epidural steroid injections. A lumbar epidural steroid injection is when the physician injects the medication near the area that is causing the patient lower back or leg pain. A cervical epidural steroid injection is when the physician injects the medication at the spinal root to help reduce pain in the upper spine and neck.

Epidural steroid injections are most often used to treat conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and sciatica. While the injection alone can provide sufficient relief, epidural steroid injections are often used in combination with other therapies to ensure a more productive recovery. Once the patient is provided relief by the ESI, he/she may be recommended to Physical Therapy to rehabilitate the appropriate areas.

Most epidural steroid injections last 10-15 minutes and are administered at Hattiesburg Clinic’s Ambulatory Surgery Center. Some joint injections are best performed with X-ray guidance, while others are performed with ultrasound guidance. While recovery time is minimal, it is suggested that patients receiving epidural steroid injections arrange for transportation after the procedure.
