Are there different types of injections with different meds for the spine injections? Have had the steroid epidural different locations ,with no relief,


  • I was just diagnosed with spondylolisthesis in December after seeing a chiropractor because of lower back pain and my left leg constantly falling asleep after standing for 5 minutes. He treated me and referred me to a neurologist and pain management doctor. I just finished 3 epidural steroid injections, and so far the numbness in my left leg is gone. I don't think there are different medicines to relieve the pain, but there are different spots in the spine where they do the injections, depending on where you're feeling pain. Some people only get relief for a few weeks after the injections, while others have lasting relief. I have to wait and see. What kind of pain are you feeling? How bad is the slippage with the spondylolisthesis? How many injections have you had?
