Epidural injections are done as a mixture of cortisone and local anaesthetic put into the lower end of spine to ease the pain of sciatica. (It is not useful in backache due to Spondylosis.)

When you have a displaced disc which causes severe shooting pain down the back/side of the leg, epidural injections are very useful in relieving the severity of the pain while the disc heals itself.
