Facet Joint Injections
Find Relief with Facet Joint Injections
Our spine is a marvel of interlocking components that allow for bending and movement. Among the three main parts, the vertebrae, spinal discs, and facet joints, the facet joints play a crucial role. These joints are located between each vertebra and enable smooth, dynamic movement as needed. However, due to the complexity of our musculoskeletal system, it can be challenging to pinpoint the main source or cause of back or neck pain. Inflammation almost always plays a role in such pain, which can result from conditions like arthritis, disc/vertebrae damage, or facet degeneration. To create an effective treatment plan, identifying the primary pain generator is essential.
At Airport Plaza Spine & Wellness, we understand the debilitating impact of back or neck pain on your daily life. Our expert physicians offer facet joint injections as an effective option to target and alleviate discomfort. The procedure involves administering a local anesthetic and long-lasting steroid into the affected facet joints with the utmost precision, using an advanced imaging technique called Fluoroscopy. This helps reduce pain, inflammation, swelling, and irritation in the area over the next 3-5 days, providing you with much-needed relief.
The benefits of facet joint injections are numerous. Not only is the procedure non-surgical, but it is also performed in our office, often on the same day as your consultation. With a high success rate and long-lasting relief, you can regain control of your life and resume your daily activities without pain.
