What is Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection?

Cervical epidural steroid injection (CESI) is an injection of anti-inflammatory medication meant to relieve the pain caused by spinal nerve inflammation. The injections are made into space just outside the covering (the dura) of the spinal cord in the lower back.

How is the injection performed?

Cervical epidural steroid injection is done lying face-down on an X-ray table and under local anesthesia with the guidance of a fluoroscopy (which provides live x-ray imaging of the body). A needle is inserted into the epidural space, and small amounts of long-lasting steroids are administered around the inflamed spinal nerve.

Conditions Targeted with Cervical Epidural Steroid Injections

Cervical epidural steroid injections may be effective in providing relief from pain associated with conditions including:

  • neck pain
  • headaches
  • herniated discs
  • degenerative disc disease
  • radiculopathy or radiculitis
  • spinal stenosis
