Chronic low back pain is common in pain management, and many injections require extensive workups, physical therapy, and imaging to get insurance approval. Caudal epidural steroid injections (Caudal ESI) are our first line of attack against chronic low back pain. Caudal ESIs involve introducing steroids into the sacral epidural space in the tailbone in an attempt to reduce inflammation in the nerves causing pain in the low back, buttocks, hips, and thighs, which can provide significant pain relief while getting through all the red tape!
