Thoracic Epidural Steroid Injection

Neck and Arm Pain Relief

A cervical epidural steroid injection is a type of medical treatment that involves injecting a special medicine into the neck area. This medicine is called a steroid, and it can help reduce inflammation and pain in the neck and arms.

The Procedure

The procedure involves a doctor numbing your skin with a small needle and then inserting a larger needle into your neck. They use X-ray guidance to make sure the needle is in the right spot, and then inject the steroid medicine.

After the injection, you will need to rest for a short while and may feel some temporary numbness or weakness in your arms. However, many people experience significant relief from their neck and arm pain after the injection.

It’s important to note that this procedure should only be done under the guidance of a medical professional and after careful consideration of your individual health needs.
