In brief: Yes

Epidural injections can relieve back pain.
This is not true for all conditions or all people. Only a qualified physician who specializes in this procedure can give you an opinion as to whether an epidural would be indicated.

In brief: Epidural injections

Depending on the cause of pain, epidural injections may help relief back pain.
The effect may not be long lasting though, and if an epidural injection is a suitable treatment for you should be a decision made by your pain physician.
