Epidural Steroid Injection Frequently Asked Questions
Epidural Steroid Injection
An Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI) refers to the injection of corticosteroids and anesthetic solutions into the epidural space of the spine to treat irritated or compressed nerves. This is often the case with disk herniation or spinal stenosis. Most patients will receive good relief for several weeks or months after an injection, and the injection may be repeated several times if needed and if proven helpful in the particular patient.
"The pain reduction allows the patient to participate more fully in rehabilitation efforts, such as exercise and physical therapy."
