Are you in the NY area and trying to find a way to relief your chronic neck and back pain? If your chronic pain is caused by facet joint inflammation, then we can help you manage the pain that you are experiencing through a series of injections that consist of an anti-inflammatory steroid, along with an anesthetic. The physician will first use a special solution to help find and confirm the location that the needle needs to be inserted.
Once the injection process is complete, you should feel pain relief quickly. Some patients, as the anesthetic starts to wear off in the next day or two, and before the steroid has been able to reduce inflammation, may experience a return of the chronic pain. However, usually within 7 days, the inflammation starts to subside and the amount of pain should start to lessen. In some cases, it may take several treatments to get the desired effect.
