Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection

This injection relieves pain in the neck, shoulders, and arms caused by a pinched nerve (or nerves) in the cervical spine. Conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or radiculopathy can compress nerves, causing inflammation and pain. The medication injected helps decrease the swelling of nerves.

Related Pain Disorders

  • Cervical Radiculopathy

    The spinal cord branches out to all parts of the body. The part of a nerve that connects to the spinal cord is called a nerve root. If one of these roots is injured or pinched, pain, weakness, numbness or tingling may be felt in the part of body served by that nerve. more

  • Degenerative Disc Disease

    This condition is a weakening of one or more vertebral discs, which normally act as a cushion between the vertebrae. This condition can develop as a natural part of the aging process, but it may also result from injury to the back. more

  • Herniated Disc (Cervical)

    When a disc in the cervical spine ruptures, soft material from inside the disc can form a bulge that presses painfully against the spinal cord and nerve roots. more

  • Herniated Discs

    This rupture of a vertebral disc can be caused by the normal wear of aging or by traumatic injury. A herniated disc can push painfully against a nerve root, sending pain down the sciatic nerve and resulting in a burning, tingling, and/or numbing sensation from the lower back down to one or both feet. more

  • Scoliosis

    About two percent of people are affected by this deformation of the spine, which causes the normally straight spine to curve. more

  • Spinal Stenosis

    Spinal stenosis results from new bone and soft tissue growth on the vertebrae, which reduces the space in the spinal canal. When the nerve roots are pinched, a painful burning, tingling and /or numbing sensation is felt from the lower back down to the legs and sometimes all the way to the feet. more

  • Spinal Stenosis (Cervical)

    This condition is a narrowing of the spinal canal that results from the degeneration of bones, discs or joints in the cervical spine. more
