How It Can Alleviate Pain

Cervical epidural steroid injections can alleviate pain by reducing inflammation in the cervical spine and numbing the affected nerve roots, providing both immediate and prolonged relief from conditions like herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and radiculopathy.

What to Expect During a Session


To begin, you lie down. You may be given medicine to help you relax. You are numbed with an injection of local anesthetic.

Placing the needle

Next, a needle is inserted through this numbed tissue. The doctor uses a fluoroscope (a video x-ray device) to guide the needle into the epidural space. That’s the space around your inflamed nerve. The doctor may inject contrast dye to make sure the needle is in the right place.

The Injection Process

Finally, the doctor injects the medicine. It bathes the painful nerve. It relieves pain and swelling. If you have other painful nerves, you may need more than one injection.

End of procedure

After your injection, you’ll be watched for a short time, then you can go home. To get the full benefit, you may need to come back for more injections. Your doctor will create a plan that’s right for you.
