Lumbar Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injections

The Center for Pain Management uses lumbar transforaminal epidural steroid injections as a pain management treatment option to relieve chronic neck pain or acute neck pain. A lumbar transforaminal epidural steroid injection is a very selective injection around a specific nerve root.

Foraminae are tiny openings between your vertebrae through which the nerve roots branch from the spinal canal and enter the body. The doctor can determine if this nerve root is causing the problem by injecting medication around a specific nerve root. Commonly used in the neck, this type of epidural injection is used most often for diagnostic purposes.
