Facet joint injection
AFacet joint injection has one common name in the application of several methods – pharmacotherapy. To eliminate the pain that begins in the facet joint, one of the injection methods is used, namely intra-articular. This also includes medial blockages or the method of neurolysis of the medial branch of the nerve root.
Why is facet joint injection used?
Based on medical research data, we can conclude that facet joint injection as well as injections of this type, in General, is used for short relief of pain syndromes, it is about two months. Neurotomy is used for a much longer period, from three months or more. It should be noted that studies have also shown that intra-articular blockages, in combination with a local anesthetic solution, that is, pain relief services or a standard salt solution applied to the facet joint, provide therapeutic benefits for patients with chronic spinal pain.
Facet joint injection occurs as follows: a special synovial fluid endoprosthesis is inserted into the facet joint by piercing under the control of an EOP (electron-optical Converter). Thanks to it, a matrix is created inside the surfaces of the facet joints and water molecules are deposited on this matrix. They interact with each other, thereby restoring the hydrophilicity of this joint. As a result, the friction between the joints disappears and the pain passes.
What can I expect from a facet joint injection?
