What Are Facet Joint Injections?

Facet Joint Injections are also known as zygapophysial joint blocks. These joints are located on the back of the spine where one vertebra overlaps another. They guide and restrict the movement of the spine. Steroid injections are used to relieve pain caused by Facet Joint Syndrome, which can be due to degeneration of the spine, spinal stenosis, or osteoarthritis.

How Do Facet Joint Injections Work for Pain Management?

Fluoroscopic guidance is used during the injection to view the joint and guide the needle to the precise spot where it needs to go. A mixture of anesthetic and cortisone is injected into the facet joint to provide temporary pain relief and reduce swelling for extended pain relief.

Our team of specialists performs Facet Joint Injections with precision and care, using the latest techniques and technology to ensure accurate placement of the injection. We work with each patient to develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses their unique needs and goals.
