An epidural steroid injection (ESI) is a minimally invasive procedure that can help relieve neck, arm, back, and leg pain caused by inflamed spinal nerves. Your healthcare provider and spine specialist can determine from MRI or CT imaging which type of ESI would be most beneficial in your unique case.  The professionals at Carolina Sports and Spine have completed over 10,000 injections with no complications. ESI may be performed to relieve pain caused by spinal stenosis, spondylolysis, or disc herniation.
