What is a Facet Medical Branch Block?

This diagnostic procedure is performed to identify a painful facet joint. The facet joints are the joints between the vertebrae in the spine. They allow the spine to bend, flex and twist. If the temporary injection relieves the patient’s pain, the physician may inject a more long-lasting anesthetic. If the temporary injection does not relieve the pain, the physician may test nearby facet joints to identify the correct one.

Am I a candidate for a Facet Medical Branch Block?

Facet blocks and medial branch blocks are typically used for patients who have pain primarily in their back coming from arthritic changes in the facet joints or for mechanical low back pain. You may require multiple injections depending upon how many joints are involved.
