Cervical Epidural and Thoracic Epidurals

Cervical epidural steroid injection procedures are injections administered to relieve pain in the neck, shoulders and arms caused by a pinched nerve or inflamed nerve(s) in the cervical spine. Conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis or arthritis can compress and pinch nerves, causing inflammation and pain.

A thoracic epidural injection is a shot that temporarily helps ease pain in your thoracic region—the upper to middle part of your back. Medicine is injected into an area around your spinal cord. This area is known as the epidural space.
