Caudal Epidural Injection

What is a caudal epidural injection?

A caudal epidural injection is an injection done towards the tailbone area where there is a small window where a needle guided with an x-ray machine can easily access the spinal cord injecting cortisone into the epidural space that will relieve back pain and leg pain by relieving swelling and pressure inside the spinal canal from herniated disc or other conditions. A series of one to three of these injections usually can provide significant clinical improvement.
