Chicago Epidural steroid injections Lawyer

Epidural steroid injections are performed to help manage chronic pain. They can be performed at the lumbar, thoracic or cervical levels. When complications occur, they are often catastrophic. There is a higher likelihood of complications from cervical epidural steroid injections than from procedures at the other levels due to the anatomy involved. When a complication does occur, such as direct needle trauma to the spinal cord, intravascular injection or dural puncture, the injuries are usually permanent and disabling. Some patients have even died from a misplaced injection.
