Facet Joint Injection Treatment
Facet joint injection treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that can be used to help diagnose the cause and location of spine pain and provide pain relief. It is typically used to help patients who have injured their back or neck, have arthritis of the spine or mechanical stress to the spine. Facet injections can reduce pain and inflammation, making it easier for the patient to tolerate a rehabilitation treatment plan. The procedure involves injecting a mixture of anesthetic and steroid into the facet joint under the guidance of Fluoroscopy. In some cases, patients will find relief after just one injection. In other cases, several injections may be needed to reach maximum benefit.
The physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are experts when it comes to administering facet joint injections. Using this advanced interventional treatment, we help patients with chronic spine pain find long-term relief from their pain and other symptoms and an improved quality of life.
