Medial Nerve Block / Facet Injection
A simple local anesthetic injection around the nerve will give you important information about the attributes in the spine. Once the medial nerve block has been completed and you have a profound reduction in pain, you may become a candidate for ablation. Ablation of this small nerve may give relief from this arthritic condition for up to a year at a time.
This is a very simple procedure. The nerve has no other function of importance, the nerve is not killed, it is disabled. The function of the nerve will return in a year and with it will come arthritic pain.
