Day Procedures

Steroid Injections

Injections of steroid (Cortisone) and local anaesthetic can be helpful in relieving nerve pain. Depending on the site of the pain, the injections may be into the epidural space, around nerve roots where they exit from the spine or around specific peripheral nerves.

Steroid injections may also be helpful for facet joint or sacroiliac joint pain.

These injections are performed under sedation and x-ray guidance as a day procedure in hospital.
