Spinal Injection for Back Pain
Lumbar Epidural Myelography with Therapeutic Injection (or spinal injection for back pain) is for those patients who have not responded to other treatments such as medications or physical therapy.
An MRI is performed to discover the cause of the pain, then local anesthetics and steroids are used to relieve the patient's symptoms.
The success of this procedure ranges from slight improvement to complete relief. It may help some patients to avoid surgery, however, some patients may not experience any benefits from this procedure.
