The word “epidural” is common language which describes both an anatomical structure and the common procedure of placing a steroid injection in the epidural space. The epidural space travels the length of the spine into the low back and legs, and contains millions of nerve endings. If these nerve endings become damaged or frayed, the patient could feel extreme amounts of pain.
Nerve damage requiring a steroid injection could be caused by:
- Disc damage
- Spinal Stenosis
- Spinal compression
An epidural steroid injection will not solve the cause of the pain, but can provide relief to the area while the patient engages with collaborative treatments. At PriMMed’s latest state of the art facilities, this procedure can be done quickly and lead to improved functioning and enhanced daily living activities.
