Thoracic Epidural Steroid Injection

Learn about this procedure and watch a detailed video that shows you exactly what is involved.

There are several conditions that can result in compression of the spinal nerves in the upper back or Thoracic Spine. Some of those conditions include herniated discs, radiculopathy, bulging discs, osteoarthritis of the spine, and spinal stenosis. When the nerves become pinched from the pressure they can radiate pain throughout the upper and middle parts of the spine. This injection can relieve the pain in the thoracic spine and ultimately provides relief from the residual effects of the pinched nerves.
