A cervical, thoracic or lumbar facet joint injection involves injecting a small amount of local anesthetic and/or steroid medication, which can anesthetize the facet joints and block the pain.
- Facet joint injections usually have two goals: to help diagnose the cause and location of pain and also to provide pain relief.
- Recovery time: There is very little recovery time after this procedure. Many patients return to work the same day. You may experience numbness from your symptoms for up to six hours after the injection.
