About 9 out of 10 Americans will experience back or neck pain at some point during their lives. Luckily, in many cases, this pain can be treated non surgically. Lumbar epidural steroid injections is a treatment for lower back pain. This injection can alleviate inflammation and pain in the lumbar (lower) area of the back, by delivering an anesthetic and steroid to the epidural space within the spine. This decreases inflammation of the nerve roots, thus healing injury and decreasing pain. This type of injection can cause relief for up to several months from lower back pain. The procedure takes up to thirty minutes plus approximately forty-five minutes recovery time.
