Facet Joint Intra-Articular Steroid Injection

Lumbar facet joint osteoarthritis is a common culprit for pain in the lower back originating from the facet joint. An intra-articular steroid injection can be an effective treatment option for patients experiencing this type of pain. For this procedure, the physician will use X-ray-guided fluoroscopy, to determine the precise location of the target facet joint and will then inject a local anesthetic. An anti-inflammatory steroid medication is then delivered to the nerve with a needle to provide pain relief to the region and reduce inflammation.

Dr. DeCaria is a double-board certified physician in anesthesiology and pain management medicine with extensive training and experience in treating chronic pain with trigger point injections.
