Facet joints are small joints located at the back of your spine. Any trauma or injury to the joints can cause them, and the surrounding areas, to become inflamed. This can cause pain that affects your daily life. If this is the case, anti-inflammatory injections may be the best option to relieve pain.
This procedure is simple and requires little recovery time. First, we use an x-ray to locate the facet joints. Then, an anesthetic is applied to the area and the injection is completed. The effects of the injection can be felt a few days after, and relief from pain is long term, spanning months.
A herniated disc causes pain through the inflammation of surrounding tissue, affecting nerve roots and ligaments. Epidural injections can help reduce pain and heal the herniated disc or tear that is causing your pain.
The procedure begins by using X-ray equipment to precisely locate the source of your discomfort. Once found, the steroid medication is slowly injected into the body. Patients will experience benefits within a few days up to a few weeks. Every patient is different and steroid medication can last for several months.
