Facet Injections

image
  • The facet joints are paired joints in the back that
    have apposing surfaces of cartilage and a
    surrounding capsule.
  • Injuries can damage one or both facet joints, and
    cartilage degeneration due to aging may
    also cause pain.
  • A facet injection is performed to alleviate the pain
    and discomfort, caused by facet joints.
  • They are also used as a diagnostic tool used to
    isolate and confirm the specific source
    of back pain.
  • In a facet block procedure, a needle is guided
    using fluoroscopy into the facet joint capsule to
    inject a numbing agent and/or a steroid
    (an anti-inflammatory medication).
