Lumbar Transforaminal (ESI)

The lumbar transforaminal ESI, also known as a nerve block, concentrates steroid delivery by placing the needle alongside the nerve as it exits the spine, so that anti-inflammatory medication can travel up and into the epidural space from the lateral position.

Pain management specialists may modify this type of Epidural Steroid Injection to target single nerves, which can decrease pain and increase function.
