Interlaminar Epidural Steroid Injections

An epidural injection delivers steroids into the epidural space around spinal nerve roots to relieve pain – back pain, leg pain, or other pain – caused by irritated spinal nerves. The steroid used in the epidural steroid injection reduces the inflammation of those nerves, which is often the source of the pain. It is important to note that an epidural steroid injection should not be considered a cure for back pain or leg pain: rather, the goal is to help patients get enough pain relief in order to be able to progress with their rehabilitation program.

An interlaminar epidural steroid injection can help provide relief for nerve irritation along the spine.
