Facet Joint Injections


Welcome to Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, where we are committed to providing advanced pain management solutions tailored to your unique needs. If you’re seeking relief from chronic back or neck pain, Facet Joint Injections may be the answer you’ve been looking for.

What are Facet Joint Injections?

Facet Joint Injections are a minimally invasive medical procedure used to diagnose and treat pain originating from the facet joints of the spine. These joints, located on both sides of the vertebral column, play a crucial role in providing stability and facilitating movement in the spine. When facet joints become inflamed or degenerate due to various conditions, they can lead to persistent and often debilitating pain.


Why Choose Facet Joint Injections at Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine?

  • Expertise: Our dedicated team, led by Dr. [Doctor’s Name], is highly skilled in performing Facet Joint Injections. We bring a wealth of experience and a commitment to delivering the highest quality of care to each patient.
  • Precise Diagnosis: Before recommending a Facet Joint Injection, we conduct a thorough evaluation of your medical history and perform diagnostic tests to identify the exact source of your pain. This ensures that we target the problem accurately.
  • Effective Pain Relief: Facet Joint Injections can provide effective pain relief for a range of conditions, including facet joint arthritis, mechanical low back pain, and facet joint syndrome. By injecting a combination of local anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication directly into the affected facet joint, we can reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Minimally Invasive: These injections are minimally invasive, meaning they require only a small needle and a tiny incision. As a result, patients experience minimal discomfort, shorter recovery times, and a lower risk of complications compared to more invasive surgical options.
  • Holistic Approach: At Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, we believe in a comprehensive approach to pain management. Facet Joint Injections can be part of a larger treatment plan that may include physical therapy, chiropractic care, or other non-surgical interventions to address the root cause of your pain.

What to Expect During a Facet Joint Injection Procedure?

  • Preparation: You’ll receive instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, which may include fasting for a few hours beforehand.
  • Procedure: The injection is administered with precision, often guided by fluoroscopy or ultrasound to ensure accuracy. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure.
  • Recovery: After the injection, you may experience some soreness or mild side effects, which typically subside within a few days. You can usually resume your daily activities shortly after the procedure.
  • Follow-up: Our team will provide post-procedure care instructions and schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.

Is a Facet Joint Injection Right for You?
