Physical therapy uses a combination of modalities to target each patient’s specific problem. Epidural steroid injections have been found to be effective to treatment for patients with sports injuries, neck, lower back, arm, and leg pain. The purpose of the epidural injection is to decrease inflammation and provide pain relief, thereby facilitating active therapy. Their primary use is as one component of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes medication, physical therapy, and education in body mechanics. Electro-diagnostic testing provides information about muscles and nerves helping the physician arrive at a diagnosis.
