Caudal Steroid Injection

Caudal Treatments

A caudal steroid injection is a minimally invasive procedure that is administered through an opening in the sacrum, the triangular bone in the low back. The injection contains a combination of steroid medications and anesthetics to help decrease inflammation and pain of the low back, rectal or groin regions. A fluoroscope and contrast solution may be used during the procedure to ensure needle placement accuracy. Pain relief from a caudal steroid injection varies depending on the patient's symptoms and condition, but individuals may experience several weeks or months of subsequent relief.
