Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection
Transforaminal injection can help relieve pain in your lower back, legs and feet caused by sciatica, herniated discs or other back problems.
You have nerves that run from your spinal cord out to your legs. When one of those nerve “roots” (the end closest to your spinal cord) gets irritated and inflamed due to a damaged disc or other condition, it causes pain that can radiate from your back to your legs and feet.
A steroid medication can help reduce the inflammation and alleviate the pain. It’s injected into your back, into the area between your spine and spinal cord.
