Facet Joint Injection

What is a Facet Joint Injection?

Facet joint injections can be performed in the cervical, thoracic or lumbar regions. There is a pair of facet joints on both sides of the rear of the spine at each vertebral level. Facet joints connect each vertebra to the vertebra below and above it and allow movement and stability of the spine. This minimally invasive procedure includes placing a needle into the facet joint and delivering anti-inflammatory steroid medication.
