Lumbar Epidural


A lumbar epidural is an injection into your spine that can relieve some kinds of pain in your lower back, hips, buttocks or legs. The injection targets the roots of the nerves that connect with your spine. It is given into the epidural spaces in your spine that surround these nerve roots. Lumbar epidurals target nerves connecting with your lower spine. The injection contains a local anaesthetic for short-term pain relief as well as an anti-inflammatory steroid.
