A facet joint injection is an injection procedure that can be both diagnostic(test) and therapeutic for neck and back pain.
Facet joint block injections can confirm whether the facets joints are indeed the source of pain and can help relieve the pain. A cervical facet joint injection is performed in the cervical spine.
The spine is composed of bony vertebral bodies, which are stacked on top of each other and separated by a disc. A facet joint connects the upper part of one vertebral body to the lower part of another vertebral body in the spine.
