In the slideshow on this page, you'll learn more about facet joint injections and how they are beneficial tools for both diagnosis and treatment of lower back and spine pain. With a facet joint block, the doctor can determine if the pain you are suffering is originating from the facet joint between the vertebrae.
If this has already been determined, the injection can be used to provide relief. The mixture of numbing anesthetic and anti-inflammatory steroid medication can have an effect in as little as one or two injections.
