In most cases, lumbar epidural steroid injections are used to treat chronic and acute back pain. They can be done to decrease the inflammation of the nerve root, which is causing the pain. These injections are also used to treat a type of spinal pain known as radiculopathy, which occurs when the nerves in the neck are compressed.

The injection is focused on the source of the pain, which can help control the inflammation in the affected area by removing harmful chemicals and proteins from the body. In addition, steroids can also reduce the activity of the immune system.

“The entire experience from scheduling an appointment to walking out the door was fantastic. You really get the sense that this is a world class practice. They made me feel welcomed and did not rush through the visit. He, and his PA, answered all my questions and ensured I understood the prognosis and all possible directions of care moving forward. I’m very happy we came across SPS.”

More About Lumbar Epidural Steroid Joint Injections

What is next if lumbar epidural steroid joint injections don’t work?

If lumbar epidural steroid injections are no longer effective to relieve pain and pressure on the spine, patients should consult with Dr. Minesh Zaveri and consider minimally invasive surgery such as lumbar decompression as a next step to treat pain. Minimally invasive procedures are considered a longer-term solution that can be performed in an outpatient setting, but are generally recommended only after non-surgical treatment options are exhausted for most patients.
