Facet Joint Pain
Medial branch nerve blocks numb the nerves that supply the facet joints with sensation and provide temporary pain relief lasting from days to several weeks so that patients may resume normal activities and/or a physical therapy program. The injection blocks pain in the same way a dentist uses an anesthetic injection to block pain.
If you respond favorably to diagnostic facet injections, you could be an appropriate candidate for Endoscopic Rizotomy, which is a long-lasting treatment.
Precision Pain Care uses strategies, methods and technology designed to break the cycle of pain and improve a patient’s quality of life.
