Facet Joint Injections

Facet joints are small joints in the spine that connect the vertebrae. When inflammation in the facet joints causes pain, steroid injections that contain an anesthetic may be used to reduce irritation and numb pain. Fast and minimally invasive, facet joint injections rapidly relieve pain and also help diagnose the source of pain, depending on if the injection reduces the inflammation.
