What is an epidural steroid injection?

An epidural steroid injection (ESI) is a minimally invasive procedure that can help relieve neck, arm, back, and leg pain caused by inflamed spinal nerves. ESI may be performed to relieve pain caused by spinal stenosis, spondylolysis, or disc herniation.

    Hello Felix!
    On site here, SH, we have all that information and so much more!

    Information can be found by using search...and/or the main site with all the formal medical articles and videos for researching.
    There are many articles and videos re epidural injections. 
    I esp. like the visual aid of the videos! When I am having the procedure, I can actually visualize it! :)

    Just to let you know!
