Learn about this procedure and watch a detailed video that shows you exactly what is involved.
There are several conditions that can result in compression of the spinal nerves in the lower back or Lumbar Spine. Some of those conditions include herniated discs, radiculopathy, bulging discs, osteoarthritis of the spine, and spinal stenosis. When the nerves become pinched and inflamed from the pressure they can radiate pain throughout the lower back and down the legs. This procedure is an injection of steroid-anesthetic solution to reduce the swelling and inflammation of the affected areas.
