Other: Sham

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pain Intensity Difference (PID) for the average pain Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) from baseline to D30 in radicular leg pain [ Time Frame: Baseline to day 60 ]
    Difference in average pain score, using a scale of 0-10 with 0 no pain and 10 worst possible pain, from baseline to day 30.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) score [ Time Frame: Baseline to day 30 ]
    6 categories of 10 question, each question is scored from 0-5 (minimum to maximum). The scores range from 0-100% with lower scores meaning less disability.

  2. Change in Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) leg pain 24 hrs post injection. [ Time Frame: 1 day post injection ]
    Difference in average pain score, using a scale of 0-10 with 0 no pain and 10 worst possible pain, from injection to 24 hrs post injection.

  3. Difference in Rescue medication consumption [ Time Frame: Baseline to day 30 ]
    Consumption from baseline through day 30

  4. Percent of subjects with significant improvement in pain [ Time Frame: Baseline to day 30 ]
    50 percent improvement in pain from baseline to day 30
