Cervical Facet Joint Injections

Medial Branch Blocks in Los Angeles and Sacramento

For patients suffering from pain in their cervical (neck) area, cervical facet joint injections or medial branch blocks can diagnose and decrease your chronic pain.

Facets joints are small joints between each of your spinal vertebrae. These joints have small nerves, called medial branch nerves, which send pain signals due to inflammation. Arthritis and injury due to accidents and overuse are common causes of inflammation. Dr. Yun can diagnose and treat facet joint pain by using fluoroscopy (live x-ray) to accurately deliver medications into the joint or at the medial branch nerves.

While no medical procedure is completely free of risks, facet joint injections and medial branch blocks are much less invasive than spine surgery. These injections are an option for patients that are not surgical candidates or that have not responded to more conservative treatments.

If you are experiencing chronic neck pain and want to explore non-surgical options, then please call California Pain Center at (855) 985-7246.
