Epidural Steroid Injection NJ

What is an Epidural Steroid Injection?

Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI) is a common method of treating inflammation causing leg, neck or arm pain relating to the lower back. This is due to the spinal nerves which become inflamed at the narrowing of the passages where the nerves travel as they pass down or out of the spine.

Narrowing of the spinal passages can occur from a variety of causes, including disc herniations, bone spurs, thickened ligaments, cysts in the joints or spondylolisthesis (‘slipped vertebrae’).

Epidural Steroid Injection, which is done by use of fluoroscopy (which provides live x-ray imaging of the body), can break the cycle of pain and inflammation and allow the body to compensate for the painful condition.
