Facet Joint Injections 

Facet joints are small joints at the back of your spine that provide your vertebral column with stability. They can be found in three areas of your vertebral column – cervical (neck), thoracic (upper back) and lumbar (lower back). 

A facet joint injection involves a long-lasting steroid and anaesthetic being injected under sterile conditions into the facet joint/s  that are causing your discomfort.  The steroid slowly reduces the inflammation and/or swelling in and around the facet joint/s which will assist in providing you with symptomatic relief. 

Nerve Root Blocks 

Nerve roots are the parts of the nerves which emerge from the spinal cord. Conditions such as prolapsed discs can cause inflammation and irritation of the nerve roots. This may result in considerable pain in the spine and along the nerves into the arms or legs. 

A nerve root injection involves a long-lasting steroid and anaesthetic being injected under sterile conditions into the nerve sheath of a single irritated or compressed nerve.  The steroid slowly reduces the inflammation and/or swelling in and around the nerve which will assist in providing you with symptomatic relief. 

Epidural Injections 

A common cause of sciatic pain is an inflammatory response to nerve irritation by a disc protrusion or nerve entrapment.  

An epidural injection involves a long-lasting steroid and anaesthetic being injected under sterile conditions into the epidural space, targeting multiple nerves at once.  The steroid slowly reduces the inflammation and/or swelling in these nerves which will assist in providing you with symptomatic relief. 

Medial Branch Blocks

A medial branch block is performed to identify the exact source of your neck or back pain. This procedure is most commonly performed to investigate and determine suitability for Radiofrequency Neurotomy (RFN). 

A medial branch block involves anaesthetic being injected onto small medial branch nerves which innervate to specific facet joints.
