Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

One of the best minimally invasive treatments for back pain is a lumbar epidural steroid injection. For the procedure, a local anesthetic is used to numb the injection site. Using fluoroscopic guidance, a American Spine physician inserts a thin needle into the vertebrae of the epidural spine. A dye is injected that allows the physician to confirm the correct location of the needle.
