ESIs are perhaps the most commonly used conservative interventional treatment for lumbosacral radiculopathy and have been shown to reduce pain and improve function in well-selected patients, often for months. ESIs play an integral role as part of a multimodal treatment strategy to treat lumbar radicular pain and theoretically present fewer risks than surgical interventions. Numerous studies over the past 50 years have demonstrated efficacy and safety leading to high utilization in treating lumbosacral radiculopathy. Overall, complication rates are low, with pain at the injection site being the most common. Systemic side effects such as elevated blood glucose may also occur. According to our study, the use of ESI is more effective for alleviating lumbosacral radicular pain than conservative treatments in terms of short-term and intermediate-term and hence proving our use of ESI for pain managemen.
