Vary...: Epidural steroid injection is usually given with mixing some local anesthetics as a part of pain management for spinal disorders. How long the post-injection soreness may last may highly vary depending on the pace of local tissue healing process. Personal experience may help such understanding, but the course of post-injection sore still varies from time to time.
Ask your doctor for detailing...
