Caudal Epidural Steroid Injections

Caudal Epidural Steroid Injections (ESI) are a form of epidural injection administered into the lower part of the epidural space in the lower back. These injections contain steroid medication designed to reduce inflammation and alleviate low back pain. The steroids in the injection work by decreasing inflammation around the nerve roots, providing relief from conditions like spinal canal stenosis, failed back syndrome, herniated disks, degenerative disk disease, and sciatica. Caudal ESIs are outpatient procedures, meaning patients can return home the same day, with most experiencing significant back pain relief within a few days​​.

Before the procedure, patients provide a complete health history and list of current medications, as some may need to be paused before the injection. The process involves lying face-down on an X-ray table, applying a topical anesthetic, and using a needle to inject the medication into the epidural space. The entire process typically takes only 15 to 30 minutes. Most people can resume regular activities within 24 hours, although they may experience some soreness at the injection site. Pain relief usually occurs within a few days but can take up to 10 days to be noticeable​​. For those struggling with persistent lower back pain, Alta Pain Physicians in Sandy, UT, offers Caudal Epidural Steroid Injections as a treatment option.
