Our office performs these injections with ultrasound guidance, which ensures that the injection is placed with 100% accuracy. We offer this important benefit to our patients because a standard epidural injection is only approximately 70% accurate, even in the most experienced hands.
Patients may notice some short-term numbness in their buttocks or legs after the injection and a slight increase in pain for a few days after the anesthetic wears off. Patients should rest for the day after their injection and avoid strenuous activities.
We offer caudal epidural injections to patients suffering from coccydynia, spine pain, osteoarthritis of the spine, lumbago, lumbar radiculopathy, neuroforaminal stenosis, spinal stenosis, and failed back syndrome.
