Transforaminal epidurals, also known as selective nerve root blocks, are a common type of treatment used to alleviate pain in patients suffering from back or neck conditions. During the procedure, a physician will use X-ray guidance to inject corticosteroids and anesthetic into the space around a spinal nerve root, which can help reduce inflammation and pain.
