Epidural injection is often associated with childbirth, but the technique is used for other situations as well, including relief of pain and swelling in the spinal column.
By injecting medication into the epidural space of your spine — just outside the membrane that protects the spinal cord itself — the specialists at Norton Leatherman Spinecan control pain and swelling. The medication used may be a steroid, or a combination of other pain-reducing medicines.
An epidural injection may be used to help your pain while your doctor decides how to move forward and repair damage.
