To determine if this treatment is right for your particular situation, consider these factors:

  • Epidural steroid injections can provide immediate pain relief to those chronic pain candidates who have severe sciatica pain from a lumbar herniated disc.
  • These injections deliver strong anti-inflammatory medication directly to the affected area (nerve) in your lower back.
