In brief: It depends
If an interlaminar approach is used, the c7-t1 interspace is usually selected for needle entry.
This is near the base of your neck. For transforaminal epidural steroid injections, the needle entry depends on the location of your neck pain and can be right- or left-sided at any point along your cervical spine.

In brief: Depends
Each location for epidural injection is meant to be given as close to the location of the pathology in your neck.
Depending on what technique the doctor is using you can be below the level of pathology or right at the level to get relief from the injection.

In brief: INTRAFORAMINAL
Esi performed in the cervical spine most often is peformed via a transoraminal approach, which is safer, but it may be performed by a translaminar approach.
