An epidural steroid injection is a minimally invasive procedure involving the administration of corticosteroids directly into the epidural space of the spine. This space surrounds the membrane that covers the spinal cord and nerve roots. The injection also typically includes a local anesthetic for immediate pain relief.
The purpose of these injections is to reduce inflammation and relieve pain, often in the lower back and neck. They are commonly used to alleviate pain associated with conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or sciatica. By decreasing the inflammation and swelling of affected nerves, epidural steroid injections for Louisiana patients may help prevent further nerve damage.

We are dedicated to helping patients achieve lasting relief from chronic pain. Our goal is to provide you with individualized care that meets your specific needs and helps you return to an active lifestyle as soon as possible.
