ESI vs. Nerve Block

I hope I'm posting this in the right place! I'm awaiting my 3rd ESI now, and starting to consider what my next step will be if this one does not do the trick. Are people ever candidates for both ESIs and Nerve Blocks? My orthopedist hasn't mentioned the nerve block. My father-in-law received them for his herniated disc, but he seemed to think that it was an either/or situation.

Would a pain management specialist be the one to see regarding a nerve block?

Anyone out there had both (or positive experiences with epidural #3?)
