Lumbar Epidural Injection

Lumbar epidural steroid and anesthetic injections can be performed for severe pain that has not been resolved with conservative measures. A combination of local anesthetics and steroids often provides immediate relief of pain that may last several weeks and in occasional cases up to several months. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis with very little risk.
