An epidural steroid injection is a minimally invasive procedure that is:
- Used to treat spinal nerve irritation caused by pressure from your inflamed tissues next to the nerve (nerve root compression).
- Guided by fluoroscopy—a viewing instrument that uses real-time X-rays––to inject a corticosteroid solution into the epidural space around your nerve roots at the affected area of the spine.
- Often effective at reducing swelling, decreasing inflammation, and alleviating pain.
