What is a Facet Injection?

A facet injection refers to an injection into the facet joints along the spine.  The facet joints are small joints along the spine that provide stability and guide motion. The injection could be PRP, dextrose, cortisone, or possibly an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid, if the doctor is just searching for the area where the pain is originating.

Chronic Pain

Commonly, three facet injections will need to be done over a six-month period to help eliminate pain.  The severity of the injury and the patient will dictate how many injections will be needed to relieve the pain. Our doctors will communicate with each patient to determine the best level of care, treatments and procedures.
