Epidural steroid injections are very frequently
used treatment for chronic pain syndromes. The common characteristic among the syndromes
that’s threated with epidural steroid injections is a pain described as radicular. The procedure involves injecting a medication
to the epidural space where the irritated nerve roots are located. This injection includes
both a long acting steroid and shorter acting local anaesthetic. The steroids reduce the
inflammation and irritation and the anaesthetic works to interrupt the pain spasm cycle and
the pain signal transmission. The combination medicine then spreads to the
other levels and portions of the spine reducing inflammation and irritation there. Entire
procedure usually takes fewer than 20 minutes. The most important and greatest success achieved
with the use of epidural steroid injections is the rapid relief of symptoms that allows
patient to experience enough relief to become active again.
