If you have low back and radiating leg pain caused by spinal conditions such as spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, sciatica and herniated disks, you have choices when it comes to pain relief. While narcotics can cause unpleasant side effects such as nausea, drowsiness, constipation and the concern about dependency, spinal injections for pain relief can greatly decrease and even eliminate the need for any drugs.
