Cervical Joint Injection

A cervical facet joint injection is a procedure used to inject a small amount of local anesthetic (numbing medicine) and steroid medication to relieve and block pain coming from the facet joints in your neck.  The facet joints can become painful due to facet joint syndrome, caused by repetitive movement, injury, or mechanical stress on your neck and shoulders.

The facet joints are small bone joints in your cervical spine that allow you to move and turn your neck and provide stability.  The facet joints are a pair of joints on both sides of your spine from your neck to your lower back. These joints are made up of cartilage (cushioning tissue between the bone) and a surrounding capsule that contains synovial fluid, which lubricates and allows the joints to function.
