Cervical and lumbar spine facet joint blocks


For chronic neck and low back pain originating from the joints we offer treatment including two separate consecutive procedures. The first one includes a diagnostic block with a numbing medication of sensory nerves innervating the affected joints. If the pain decreases for fifty percent or more five minutes after a block tells us if we found the source of pain. The diagnostic block will work only for a few hours. The second procedure includes exposing only the sensory nerve to high frequency current, called radio frequency nerve ablation, providing relief for up to two years.
