A facet joint connects one vertebra to another vertebra. When patients complain about neck pain or back pain at Texas Pain Relief Group, we examine these facet joints. We commonly find that there is inflammation in these facet joints, which are aggravated when you extend them via sweeping like motions. During a Facet Joint Injection we inject a steroid and numbing medicine into the specific facet joint that causes the pain. Afterwards the inflammation should subside as well as the pain. To learn more call us at Texas Pain Relief group, we would be more than happy to help you with any questions you have.
