Pain Relief and Pain Block Injection Therapies in Houston, TX
Spine Facet Joint
The facet joints are joints along the sides of each vertebrae within the spine. Healthy facet joints glide and pivot as the back moves, and help prevent over-twisting. If degenerative changes or injury cause inflammation within these joints, it can result in considerable pain. At Synergy Vascular and Intervention (SVI), we specialize in pain relief injection therapy. A facet joint injection is administered by one of our board-certified interventional radiologists and is an image-guided injection of a strong anti-inflammatory medicine directly into the joint to alleviate pain. To learn more about pain relief and pain blockers, call SVI at (713) 621-7436 to schedule at one of our 10 Houston, TX partner locations.
A facet joint injection is an image-guided injection of a strong anti-inflammatory medicine directly into the joint to alleviate pain.
Degenerative changes or disc disease in the spine can result in pinched nerves or spinal stenosis, which can also result in significant acute or chronic pain. A nerve root block is an image-guided injection by Synergy Vascular and Interventional’s radiologists of a local anesthetic and steroid into the area where the nerve exits the spinal column. A nerve root block is typically recommended when there is pain in the arm or leg that follows the path of a single nerve from the spine.
