A Facet Joint Injection for Your Pain

A cervical, thoracic or lumbar facet joint injection involves injecting a small 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.

Facet joint injections usually have two purposes:

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 a long-term pain relief.

The This procedure is also known as a facet block. It’s named as such because it blocks the pain.

What Our Patients are Saying

  • Julie Bailey

    Had a ruptured disc from a car accident this summer that I have been having issues with pain wise. Dr. Dar’s quick service for cortisone shots to help manage the pain has been a lifesaver! Highly recommend.

  • Cliff Fisher

    I am so appreciative of Dr. Dar and his staff. I can see how busy he is, but even so he still takes his time during my appointment to explain what he can do to help me with my lower back pain. Thank you Dr. Dar!

  • Trish Marcos

    Dr. Dar and his staff were very professional and genuinely cared about my comfort and pain management when I was suffering from awful back pain. I really appreciate what they did for me. I finally have my life back and am able to function because of them. Thank you so much Dr. Dar!

  • Art Cruz

    I was referred by Dr. Homero Rodriguez to come and see Dr. Urfan Dar. I used to be a U.S. paratrooper, and after I hurt myself my lower back pain was so terrible that I couldn’t sleep at night. Dr. Dar is so good that I’ve been coming to him since 2002 . Dr. Dar pays attention to me when I tell him where I am hurting, and then takes care of the pain. He’s the best.

  • Misty Wilson

    I struggled for years to find someone who could help me with my Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome pain. P.A. Watson actually listened to me and has been working diligently to ease my pain ever since. I would highly recommend you go see him!!!

  • Lisa Ortiz

    Dr Bengali is wonderful! I had my first C-sp epidural injection, he said it could take up to five days to feel relief. I was having a pain of 7 walking and after I woke up my pain went dramatically down to a 2. I had instant relief. I couldn’t believe it. I was so happy with his team and the results. Thanks Dr. Bengali!

  • Michael Philby

    I have always had a good experience with the doctors, PA’s, and staff in the office. Their caring attitude towards their patients stands out. Another doctor I go to recommended them to me, and I’m glad she did. I’ve had issues with previous pain management offices: lack of caring, feeling like just another patient, rude behavior, extremely long waiting periods to see the doctor, and issues getting prescriptions. I highly recommend Tri-City pain management for issues you may have with chronic pain.

  • Rudy Moncivaiz

    The whole staff is very nice & very friendly! They treat you really well and with respect, the atmosphere is great. Dr. Dar is great, thank you very much!

  • Jennifer Plotts

    I was initially referred to Dr.Tong and I have to say, I was nervous. Well Dr. Tong surprised me, he is the best! He his honest and caring. The girls in the front are friendly also. I will be telling everyone about him, and thank you for helping me.
