Facet joints are small joints at each segment of the spine that provide stability and help guide motion. Facet joints may become painful due to arthritis, an injury or mechanical stress to the spine. A facet block injection involves injecting a medication, which anesthetizes the joint and blocks the source of pain. The pain relief gained from the facet block is intended to help the patient engage in physical therapy to help rehabilitate the effected area of the spine.
All facet block injections administered at The Atlantic Spine and Joint Institute are given under real time, fluoroscopic guided x-ray to assure precise placement of the injection. These injections essentially reduce inflammation, which often provide long-term pain relief for the patient.
