The purpose of this research study is to look at two of the common forms of treatment for
this condition: physical therapy and epidural steroid injection. The investigators are
attempting to evaluate whether or not physical therapy alone, or epidural steroid injections
alone, are effective in treating this condition. The investigators will also try to determine
whether or not one of these treatments is better than the other for the treatment of
herniated discs with nerve injury (radiculopathy).
