Epidural Steroid Injections
Often referred to as “pinched nerve pain” or “sciatica”, radiculopathy describes the condition where a spinal nerve root is irritated or inflammed. Radiculopathy can be caused by a number of conditions including arthritis of the spine, disc herniation or spinal stenosis. Epidural steroid injections can identify and treat the nerve root by precisely targeting the injured area, allowing rehabilitation and recovery. A vast majority of patients can be treated effectively without resorting to invasive surgery.
How It Helps
An epidural steroid injection can be effective in treating conditions like a herniated disc, sciatica pain, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.
