Work status and response to epidural steroid injection.


A total of 187 patients with lumbar radiculopathy underwent epidural steroid injection. On follow-up 1 to 3 years later, patients were asked if their initial injury was work-related and if they were unemployed as a result of their injury. They also rated their response to injection. Fifty-two percent of the patients with work-related injury v 68% of the patients with non-work-related injury responded to epidural steroid injection (P = 0.46).
