Pain Management

Steroid injection of shoulder

A steroid injection is a minimally invasive procedure that can temporarily relieve joint, back or neck pain caused by inflamed facet joints, including arthritis, injury or degeneration.

A steroid injection of a joint can:

  • Be used as a diagnostic test to see if the pain is actually coming from your facet joints.
  • Relieve inflammation and pain caused by various spine conditions.
  • Include both a long-lasting corticosteroid and an anesthetic numbing agent delivered directly to your painful facet joint, either inside the joint capsule or in the tissue surrounding the joint capsule.
  • Provide pain relief for a few days up to a few years.
