Epidural Steroid Injection
Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI) is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat inflammation due to nerve root compression or irritation caused by a disc herniation, a bone spur or a narrowed spinal canal.
This involves the injection of steroid into the outermost area of the spinal canal that surrounds the spinal cord and nerve roots.
Generally, pain relief lasts 3-9 months, but in some instances can last years.
ESI is generally safe.
