A facet joint injection is an injection of an anesthetic medication into the facet joints. Facet joints are located in the back or the neck at each vertebral level.
The Facet Joint injections are steroid injections that can reduce the inflammation in the joint space. This can reduce pain, and other symptoms caused by inflammation such as nerve irritation. Facet joint injections are done under x-ray (fluoroscope) guidance.

The entire staff at Performance Spine and Sports Medicine are very professional and the care that they provide is first rate. I have had PT and Chiropractic care in the past and I would rank this organization better in every way. The integrated model of having Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, massage therapists, and physicians under the same roof is very helpful and really facilitates interaction between all of the care providers. I would not hesitate to recommend this organization.
This is my second time at PSSM and the results are great once again. The staff was great and everyone is friendly and warm and most importantly they have gotten me back to pursuing my passion and work once again. I went in for a back problem and now I'm 90% back to normal and working on their stretches to make it 100%. No pain meds!!!!
