There are many possible causes of pain. However, a very common cause is a herniated or bulging disc. Studies have shown that the pain caused by herniated or bulging disc can be due to leakage of its contents. This causes inflammation within the spinal canal and irritates the nerves that go to the arms or legs causing neck or back pain, sciatica and muscle spasm.
By doing an Epidural Injection, the inflammation can be neutralized. In most cases, the pain is relieved. The earlier the epidural is done, the higher the chance of success. If not treated early, people who are over 65 years old have a higher tendency to develop severe prolonged pain for many years.
