A caudal epidural injection is administered through the caudal canal (tailbone area). A fluoroscope assists the physician in locating the collection of nerve roots thought to be inflamed and contributing to your pain.

The covering over the nerve roots in the spine is called the dura. The sleeve-like space surrounding the dura is called the epidural space.  A caudal epidural injection places anti-inflammatory medicine into the epidural space to reduce nerve inflammation and reduce your symptoms. By stopping or limiting nerve inflammation we may promote healing, and speed up recovery.

If you suffer from lower back or spine pain that radiates to your legs; or if you experience swelling or inflammation because of spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, sciatica and herniated discs, then Dr. Reid can determine that a caudal steroid injection would be the most effective treatment option for you.  Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Patients begin to notice an improvement in their pain 3-5 days after the injection. Improvements will generally occur within 10 days after the injection.
