EPIDURAL STEROID INJECTIONS (ESIs)
This non-surgical procedure performed at The Spine Hospital is an injection of long-lasting steroid (cortisone) in the epidural space. The epidural space is located above the outer layer surrounding the spinal cord and nerve roots. An ESI is performed to help reduce the inflammation and pain associated with nerve root compression caused by a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, and bone spurs. The goal of the ESI is to help lessen the inflammation of the nerve root.LEARN MORE >

These injections work by reducing the inflammation and irritation of the facet joints that are causing your neck or lower back pain caused by spinal stenosis, arthritis, whiplash, herniated discs, or injury.LEARN MORE >
