Joint Pain Relief
Spinal facet joint injections are a type of medical treatment that involves injecting a special medicine into the joints in your spine. These joints are called facet joints, and they can become inflamed and painful due to injury or wear and tear.
The procedure involves a doctor numbing your skin with a small needle and then inserting a larger needle into the joint. They use X-ray guidance to make sure the needle is in the right spot, and then inject the medicine.
After the injection, you may feel some temporary numbness or weakness in the area. However, many people experience significant relief from their back pain after the injection.
It’s important to note that this procedure should only be done under the guidance of a medical professional and after careful consideration of your individual health needs.
