Quickly Relieves Your Chronic Spine Pain And Inflammation – Anywhere From Your Neck To Lower Back
What Takes Place During the Procedure?
- In preparation for this safe, 20-to-30-minute treatment for Facet Joint Syndrome, our pain management expert numbs the skin and tissue above the facet joint with an injection of local anesthetic.
- With the aid of an x-ray device called a fluoroscope, the physician guides a needle through the numbed tissue and into the affected facet joint.
- After confirming the needle’s placement, the physician injects a soothing mixture of numbing anesthetic and anti-inflammatory steroid medication.
- If the pain subsides, it suggests that the facet joint (or joints) injected were the cause of pain.
What Can You Expect Afterward?
Up to several months of relief can follow as the steroid reduces inflammation and pain, allowing you to return to a healthy and active lifestyle.
