An ‘epidural’ is a therapeutic injection designed to provide relief from pain or inflammation in and around your spinal nerve roots.
This is accompanied by a CT Scan to help the technician/radiologist guide the injection exactly to the right location.
A ‘Facet Injection’ is an anti-inflammatory injection targeted toward a particular joint in the spine.
It temporarily shuts down pain signals and is performed after a CT scan to pinpoint the exact location for treatment.
