Thoracic Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection – Spine Center Atlanta

Thoracic Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection

 

If you have upper or mid back pain that is persistent, chronic and unresponsive to treatments tried thus far, a Thoracic Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection may be for you!  A Thoracic Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection is an out patient treatment where a pain relieving injection is administered to the epidural space. The dura is   the protective covering of the spinal cord and nervous system and the epidural space is the space around the dura.

Your brain sits on top of your skull and the brain stem goes down into the first two bones in your neck. From there comes your spinal cord. The spinal cord houses your nervous system and is protected by your spinal column. The spinal column is made up of bones called vertebrae and in between the bones are discs that act as shock absorbers. Nerves that control every cell, movement and function in your body travel between the vertebrae to tell your arm to move, your heart to beat, your stomach to digest, your neck to feel pain and so on. The nervous system is the master controller for your entire body!

Often the area that protects the vital nervous system called the dura can get inflamed. there are many causes of dura inflammation such as: disc injury, disc herniation, disc bulge, bone spurs, arthritis and degeneration. When this occurs it may cause upper or mid back pain, tingling or numbness. A Thoracic Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection can be beneficial in alleviating symptoms to the upper and mid back regions.
