Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

Lumbar epidural steroid injections are a minimally invasive procedure used to alleviate pain and inflammation in the lower back (lumbar spine) by delivering medication directly into the epidural space— the area surrounding the spinal cord and nerves. The injected medication typically includes a combination of corticosteroids and local anesthetics, which work together to reduce inflammation and block pain signals from the affected area.

How Do They Work?

Our team of experienced specialists utilizes fluoroscopic guidance to precisely administer lumbar epidural steroid injections, ensuring optimal placement of the medication for maximum effectiveness. By targeting the source of pain directly, these injections provide rapid relief and allow for improved mobility and function.

Key Benefits of Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections:

  1. Targeted Pain Relief: Lumbar epidural steroid injections deliver medication directly to the source of pain, providing targeted relief for conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.
  2. Minimally Invasive: These injections are performed on an outpatient basis and involve minimal discomfort, allowing for a quick recovery and return to daily activities.
  3. Long-Lasting Results: Many patients experience significant and long-lasting relief from their symptoms following lumbar epidural steroid injections, allowing them to enjoy improved quality of life without the need for more invasive interventions.
  4. Improved Functionality: By reducing pain and inflammation in the lumbar spine, these injections can help improve your range of motion and overall functionality, allowing you to engage in activities with greater ease and comfort.
