Epidural Steroid Injection
Patients with sciatica (leg pain) after a prolapsed disc with abutment or compression of a nerve root may get significant relief from a steroid injection into the site of the problem. These injections are given under ultrasound or x-ray guidance to improve safety. It is usually only done after the patient has had an MRI to confirm the diagnosis and level of the problem.
