Pain that spreads from your lower back down your legs is called sciatica or radicular pain. If you have this type of pain, a transforaminal epidural injection may help you. A transforaminal epidural injection is the newest type of epidural steroid injection. It involves injecting steroid into the epidural space through the bony opening of the exiting nerve root, known as the foramen. It numbs your nerve, offers temporary pain relief and reduces inflammation. Transforaminal epidural injections are done with a more diagonal approach than other epidural injections so that the affected nerve can be better treated. They allow the medication to be placed nearer to the area where the nerve is being pinched. They only target one side of your spine.

An injection in your lower back is called a lumbar epidural and an injection at the bottom of your spine is called a caudal epidural. A lumbar or caudal epidural injection contains a local anaesthetic to numb your pain and a steroid called cortisone to help reduce swelling and inflammation. The medicines are injected into the area surrounding the nerves in your lower back. This common procedure takes between 15 and 30 minutes. It may give you short-term pain relief and make it easier to move your lower back and legs.

At The Holly Hospital, we provide comprehensive care throughout the patient journey. Our team also works side by side with musculoskeletal physiotherapists who can help with rehabilitation to get you back to maximum flexibility and movement in the shortest possible time.

If you require an epidural injection our surgeons can offer a range of advanced treatments. We offer an all-inclusive self-pay package for a lumbar epidural injection and one follow-up appointment.

  • Transforaminal epidural with prices starting from £1,350
  • Epidural injection (lumbar) with prices starting from £1,350
