Epidural Steroid Injections for Sciatica

Physiatrists perform a number of non-surgical procedures to reduce pain and inflammation so that patients can take advantage of rehabilitation programs. One such method is the use of Epidural Steroid Injections, a minimally invasive procedure that reduces inflammation and pain in the spinal nerves. This practice delivers a combination of a long-lasting corticosteroid and an anesthetic numbing agent to the spinal nerve through the epidural space (the area between the protective covering of the spinal cord and vertebrae).

Epidural Steroid Injections provide a temporary solution to pain so that patients can benefit from physical therapy and other rehabilitation practices.
