What kind of doctor administers epidural cortisone injection?

I am considering consulting a doctor to get a cortisone injection. Im wondering who kind of doctor is trained for this?
An Orthopaedic? Neurologist? Physical Medicine Physician?

to my knowledge

Some NS will do them, and pain management & physiatrists for sure. Not sure on the OS. I have had epidural injections from the 3 listed above.

You should consult with your PCP.

Good luck to you.

I have seen or gotten EPI's from the following types of DRs:

Anesthesiologists
Neurologists
Pain Management Doctors
Orthopedic
Physiatrists

I am sure there are others that can give them, these are just the most common.
