The Cervical Facet Joint Nerve Block Procedure is an injection next to a nerve (medial branch nerve) of a small joint (facet joint) between two vertebral bodies of the spine that is the likely cause of your neck and/or upper back pain.

Why is a Cervical Facet Joint Nerve Block Procedure helpful?

It is helpful in the treatment of your neck and/or upper back pain, which is likely due to a disorder of your cervical facet joint. One medication is used for the injection: a short-acting local anesthetic numbing agent. You may or may not experience temporary pain relief after the injection. If you experience pain relief after the injection of the short-acting local anesthetic numbing agent, the relief of pain will last for a couple hours.
