Facet Injection

Facet Joint Injection procedures are normally done to diagnose and confirm if the facet joints are the causing the root of the pain within the body. This procedure takes about 5-10 minutes and can help greatly reduce and alleviate pain being felt in the spine. Healthy facet joints help support the spine while also allowing it to properly bend and twist. These joints can become inflamed because of many different conditions such as osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, or even a car accident injury.

This procedure starts when a local anesthetic is inserted into a small region of skin and tissue to numb the areas. Then, we use fluoroscopy to help guide a larger needle into the facet joint. Once the needle is positioned correctly in the facet joint, we insert the joint with a mixture of anesthetic such as lidocaine or cortisone to relieve pain. Facet Joint Injections are often combined with physical therapy for best results.
