Leg pain is often the result of nerve irritation at the level of the lumbar spine. Treating the underlying problem at the spinal level will frequently reduce or even eliminate the associated leg pain, weakness and numbness.
While there are a number of treatments available to alleviate leg pain one of the most effective and conservative treatments is Epidural Steroid Injections. Epidural Steroid Injections decrease inflammation at the nerve root to reduce pain associated with nerve irritation. Another option involves Endoscopic Discectomy.
