Effect of Steroids on Back Pain

Oral Steroids and Epidural Steroids are considered viable options for back pain treatment. Oral Steroids are also effective in the treatment of inflammatory reactions which occur in many health conditions including rheumatic and autoimmune diseases. These drugs are only recommended for short term use.

Cortisone is a steroid that is produced naturally in your body. It is released from the adrenal gland when your body is under stress. Cortisone is produced synthetically and is used for treating various disorders. Cortisone suppresses the normal immune response, thereby reducing pain and inflammation, common back pain symptoms. Giving epidural steroid may help people who suffer from back pain which is caused primarily by inflammation in the spinal nerves.
