In administering facet joint injections, our goal is to diagnose the cause and location of pain and to provide pain relief. The amount of pain relief experienced by the patient when a numbing medicine is placed into the facet joint determines if the facet joint is the source of pain. Together with the numbing medicine, cortisone is also injected into the facet joint to help reduce the swelling which gives lasting pain relief.
Cervical facet joint pains usually affect the neck while thoracic facet joint pains affect the upper back. The pain caused by lumbar facet joints is usually felt in the lower back. Facet joint injection is a relatively simple and straightforward procedure that is best performed using fluoroscopy to properly guide the targeted facet joint in inserting the needle. This pain management treatment is the gold standard for identifying the source of spinal pain.
