What Are Facet Joint Injections?
The facet joints within your spine are responsible for helping you be able to bend and twist your back. When your facet joints are no longer healthy, grind, and radiate pain, this is usually from cartilage loss from pressure, stress, injury, or aging. At Preston Surgery Center, we have a team of pain management specialists who have dedicated their careers to helping patients find ways to end their pain. This includes patients with facet joint pain. In Frisco, TX, we have an AAAASF-accredited surgical facility where we can diagnose and address the spinal pain within your inflamed cervical, lumbar, and thoracic facet joints. To perform a facet joint injection, our pain specialist will utilize an x-ray machine to direct the path for these injections. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained pain management specialists, Dr. Mohammad Tariq, Dr. David Keelen, and Dr. Gabor Racz, can inject your facet joints with anesthesia and other medications (as deemed necessary). This may be a treatment used on its own or in a combination of treatments to manage your pain, such as medication management, physical therapy, behavioral counseling, chiropractic services, acupuncture, and/or minimally invasive surgeries.
