What is Spine Epidural Injection?

A spine epidural steroid injection is a minimally invasive procedure used to relieve pain and inflammation in the spine, particularly in the area around the spinal nerves

Overall, spine epidural steroid injections can be an effective treatment option for managing pain and inflammation associated with spine conditions, providing relief and improving quality of life for many individuals. Here’s a brief overview:

Spine Epidural
  1. Procedure: During a spine epidural steroid injection, a small needle is inserted into the epidural space, which is the area surrounding the spinal cord and nerves. This space is then filled with a mixture of a local anesthetic (such as lidocaine) and a corticosteroid medication (such as cortisone). The injection is typically guided by fluoroscopy (live X-ray) or ultrasound to ensure accurate placement of the needle.
  2. Purpose: The corticosteroid medication reduces inflammation and swelling around the spinal nerves, which can alleviate pain and other symptoms caused by conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or degenerative disc disease. The local anesthetic provides immediate pain relief, while the corticosteroid offers longer-lasting anti-inflammatory effects.
  3. Conditions Treated: Spine epidural steroid injections are commonly used to treat conditions causing nerve-related pain in the spine, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, and radiculopathy (nerve root compression).
  4. Effectiveness: Epidural steroid injections can provide significant pain relief for many patients, allowing them to resume normal activities and participate in physical therapy or other rehabilitative measures. However, the duration of pain relief varies from person to person, and some individuals may require multiple injections or additional treatments to achieve lasting relief.
  5. Risks and Side Effects: While spine epidural steroid injections are generally considered safe, common side effects may include temporary increases in pain, temporary numbness or weakness in the legs, and temporary flushing or sweating.
  6. Preparation and Recovery: Spine epidural steroid injections are usually performed on an outpatient basis and require minimal preparation. After the procedure, patients may experience some soreness or discomfort at the injection site, but this typically resolves within a few days. Patients are usually advised to avoid strenuous activities for a short period following the injection.
