Lumbar Spondylosis

I have lumbar Spondylosis at l4-5 severe L2-3 moderate and t10 mild .I have severe continous pain in my back from past 4 months. I have taken medication and physiotherapy but there is no relief . Is it safe to take epidural steroidal injections to relieve pain or is there any other better treatment than injections.

Epidural steroid is safe but usually effective where the pain travels into the lower limbs. You need to be assessed by Ortho surgeon for the treatment to be followed.
