An epidural injection is used to provide temporary pain relief associated in injuries such as herniated or bulging disc, spinal stenosis and even during child birth.

Epidural injections numb the pain, however it can cause the opposite effect and cause serious pain, paralysis or even a medical condition.

Epidural injections are administered by an experienced and highly qualified health professional.  It involves an epidural anesthetic which is administered through a needle into your spinal column.  The needle punctures the spinal column and sits in the epidural space just outside the sac that contains the spinal cord.  The drug is then dispensed into the epidural space, numbing the pain.

During administration, the health professional must follow the four P’s: preparation, position, projection and puncture.  Even the slightest negligence or carelessness can cause serious health complications.

Epidural Injection Lawsuit
