Foraminal infiltration - Definition


Definition


Foraminal infiltration is a medical technique of injecting an anti-inflammatory, corticosteroid-based product at the spine, where the nerve roots emerge. This procedure can be performed under the control of a scan in order to have the closest possible location to the nerve responsible for the pain. These injections are performed under local anesthesia in people who suffer from a herniated disc responsible for neuropathic pain like sciatica. Unfortunately, the pain relief is usually temporary.
