Thoracic Epidural


A thoracic epidural is an injection into your spine that can relieve certain kinds of upper back pain or rib pain. The injection is given into the epidural spaces that nerves pass through on their way between the spinal cord and other parts of your body. A thoracic epidural targets the nerves that meet with your middle and upper spine. The injection contains a local anaesthetic for temporary pain relief and a steroid that can reduce inflammation.
