WHAT ARE EPIDURAL STEROID INJECTIONS?
Epidural steroid injections consist of a steroid medication with local anesthetic which are injected in to portions of the spine, known as the epidural space, where inflamed nerves are causing pain. These injections are an integral part of the non-surgical management for many forms of back pain, neck pain and leg pain. A common treatment option to achieve pain relief, the injection is often used in combination with a comprehensive physical rehab program. While the injection’s effects tend to be temporary, they can be critical for acute pain relief especially in conjunction with other forms of physical therapy.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING
[Since my bulging disc correction] I haven't had pain in my leg at all and had only a little pain in my back from my surgery, but zero pain in my legs, the sciatica is gone.
Edward, age 55, bulging disc injury
Today my back and hip feel tremendous. My legs are still a bit weak, possibly from nerve damage that occurred prior to surgery. I’m going to physical therapy 3 times per week. I was back at work on November 15th, 3 weeks after surgery.
Robert, age 58,
history of disc herniation and previous surgeries
Nobody likes to be injured and neck surgery is a delicate procedure, but Dr. Massoud explained what needed to be done, which made me feel more comfortable. [Post-surgery] I felt great, and today the pain is completely gone.
