Transforaminal Epidural


A transforaminal epidural is an injection that can relieve back, arm or leg pain caused by problems at the roots of the nerves in your spine. The transforaminal injection is given into the foramen, the opening between vertebrae that the nerves travel through to reach the epidural spaces and connect with your spinal cord. The transforaminal epidural injection contains a local anaesthetic for short term pain relief along with a steroid that can reduce swelling and inflammation.
