cervical epidural steroid injection

The cervical vertebrae are essentially the neck vertebrae. When neck pain is present as a result of a pinched nerve or nerve irritation, often the best solution is a cervical epidural steroid injection. During the procedure, an anti-inflammatory steroid is injected directly into the epidural space, flooding the nerve with the powerful medication. The entire procedure is performed using fluoroscopy guidance, to ensure patient safety and surgical accuracy. You can think of fluoroscopy as a sort of real-time x-ray imaging.
