  • Overview

    epidural-steroid-injection-cervical

    Epidural Steroid Injections in the cervical spine are used to reduce inflammation.  During this procedure a thin needle will be inserted into the epidural space of the cervical spinal column under the guidance of an X-ray (fluoroscopy).

    After the needle is properly placed a corticosteroid in combination with an anesthetic pain medication will be injected through the needle.  The purpose of the corticosteroid is to minimize inflammation and swelling in the epidural space to minimizing inflammation will take pressure off nerves and soft tissues to provide pain relief over time. The anesthetic pain medication provides immediate pain relief.  For some individuals, an Epidural Steroid Injection alone is enough for pain relief. For others, Epidural Steroid Injections are used in combination with rehabilitation. Pain relief from an epidural steroid injection can range from one week to one year.
