Medial Treatments

A medial branch block is a diagnostic injection procedure that locates and provides subsequent pain relief to facet joints in the spine causing discomfort. Facet joints are located in between vertebrae and are responsible for bending and twisting the spine. These joints are surrounded by medial branch nerves, which carry pain signals from the spine to the brain. Although the primary purpose of a medial branch block is to diagnose pain caused by damaged facet joints, this minimally invasive procedure can also provide some pain relief.

The first step in treating your pain is to get an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your symptoms. Based on your diagnosis, you and your doctor can determine your best treatment options.
