A cervical epidural steroid injection is a non-surgical treatment that can be used to alleviate pain in the upper spine/neck caused by irritated nerves. The interventional spine treatment involves injecting a combination of steroids and anesthetic into the epidural space surrounding the affected nerve roots under the guidance of Flouroscopy. This procedure is commonly used to treat pain and inflammation caused by a pinched nerve, herniated disc or Spinal Stenosis in the upper region of the spine. Many patients find relief after just one injection. Others require two to three injections to achieve the maximum benefit.
