Abstract

Objectives: Epidural injections have been used for many years in the treatment of chronic pain in patients with chronic back-leg pain and chronic neck-arm pain. We aimed to compare the efficacy of lumbar and cervical epidural steroid injections on pain palliation, duration of pain relief and patient satisfaction.
