An epidural steroid injection (ESI) is a minimally invasive course of action that can help alleviate leg, back, arm, and neck pain caused by inflamed spinal nerves. ESIs may be carried out to relieve pain produced by spinal stenosis, or disc herniation. Medicines are dispensed to the spinal nerve through the epidural space, the region between the protective covering of the spinal cord and vertebrae. The effects of ESI tend to be brief. The objective is to reduce pain so that you may continue normal activities and a physical therapy program.
