Following positioning, the anesthetist will clean your back using anti-septic solution. He may administer a little bit of local anaesthetic to numb the skin at the point where he is going to give the spinal, so that you donít feel the pain due to the spinal needle. The local anesthetic solution is then injected into the spinal space through a long needle. (Usually between L3 - L4, it is subject to change and vary from individual to individual). After successful administration, you will be positioned in the required position and once again all your parameters will be checked by the anesthetist.
