Facet Joint Injections

Each vertebra in the spine is connected to the vertebra above and below it by facet joints, which are located on both sides of the rear of the spine. A facet joint block can be both diagnostic and therapeutic for back or neck pain.  A facet joint block injection can confirm whether the facet joints are indeed the source of pain and can help relieve the pain and inflammation.
