A cervical, thoracic or lumbar facet joint injection involves injecting a ® all amount of local anesthetic (numbing agent) and/or steroid medication, which can anesthetize the facet joints and block the pain. The facet joint becomes painful due to arthritis of the spine, mechanical stress to the back, or a back injury.
To help diagnose the cause of the pain: The amount of pain relief experienced by the patient will help determine if the facet joint is the source of the pain.
To provide pain relief: A time-release steroid or cortisone is included in the numbing medication and facet joint injection to reduce inflammation which sometimes provides long-term pain relief.
This procedure is also known as a facet block. It’s named as such because it blocks the pain.
