Epidurals For Arm And Leg Pain

Epidural steroids are often successful in helping alleviate symptoms for patients with neck or back pain that radiates to their arms and/or legs. In these cases, patients often have disc herniations or degenerative changes in their back, such as the narrowing of space in the spine, bulging discs, and bone spurs. These conditions can put stress on sensory nerves, leading to tingling, numbness, and weakness in the extremities.

Treating the epidural space, fat-filled areas between spinal bones and the protective layer surrounding spinal nerves, with steroids can reduce swelling in the region, thereby lessening pressure on the nerve(s). This leads to reduction of pain in the region as well as in areas connected to the affected nerve(s), such as in the arms and legs. After an initial, diagnostic nerve block to determine if the pain originates from the spine, additional treatments may be considered. Many patients require repeat treatment to maintain their pain relief.

Nerve blocks can be performed in the following areas:

  • Cervical spine
  • Lumbar spine
  • Thoracic spine
