What are Fluoroscopy Guided Epidural Injections?
An epidural injection can be given to relieve pain symptoms associated with a disease or disorder, such as lumbar radiculopathy, or lower back pain. Epidural injections deliver steroidal or pain-blocking medication to the exact location where nerve pain is occurring.
Administering an epidural injection can be difficult when there is scar tissue, swelling or other obstructions preventing accurate placement of an injection needle. This is where Fluoroscopic technology can be helpful.
