The Precision of Facet Joint Injections

Facet Joint Injections are minimally invasive procedures designed to alleviate chronic back pain by targeting the facet joints in the spine. Using state-of-the-art imaging technology, our specialists can accurately locate the affected facet joint and administer a combination of anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication directly into the joint space. This targeted approach aims to reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and improve mobility, providing effective relief for individuals suffering from chronic back pain.

Conditions Addressed with Facet Joint Injections

acet Joint Injections have demonstrated remarkable effectiveness in managing chronic back pain associated with various conditions, including:

  • Degenerative Disc Disease: Alleviating pain caused by the breakdown of spinal discs over time.
  • Facet Joint Syndrome: Addressing discomfort stemming from inflammation or injury to the facet joints.
