Facet Joint Injections

What Are Facet Joint Injections?

Facet Joint Injections are also known as zygapophysial joint blocks. These joints are located on the back of the spine where one vertebra overlaps another. They guide and restrict the movement of the spine. Steroid injections are used to relieve pain caused by Facet Joint Syndrome, which can be due to degeneration of the spine, spinal stenosis, or osteoarthritis.
