The Dura-mate is a cover for nerves in the spine and the space surrounding the dura-mate is known as epidural space. These nerves may get damaged due to irritation of disc or contact with bone spur causing pain in low back, hips, legs, and buttocks. To relieve this pain, an injection is provided in the epidural space. These injections are caudal epidural injections. It is a steroid injection.

What are the causes of pain?

Before treatment doctors at best pain management hospitals in Manikonda ask for the patient's complete health history and current medication as blood thinner medicines are not allowed to take.

The caudal epidural injection in Hyderabad is a 15 to 30 minutes procedure and a patient can go home within a day.

In the process, the patient is lied face down. The X-ray image is used to guide the injection. After the process soreness may occur near the injection site but it’s normal.

The patient is suggested to avoid driving for 24 hours. If bleeding, bruises, or swelling occurs after injection then suggested visiting a doctor for further medication.
