Epidural injections are a non-surgical treatment option for upper back (thoracic) pain.  The procedure involves delivering pain-relieving medications directly to or near the source of the pain in the spine during a short outpatient procedure.  Epidural injections can be very effective for some people and may be repeated over time.  For some, physical rehabilitation is possible once the pain has been relieved.
