Epidural and facet injections are two of the most common and effective injections for managing back pain and nerve root pain (commonly called “sciatica”). There are thousands of these injections given to patients across America every year because the lifetime prevalence of low back pain is about 50 to 80 percent.
An epidural injection is often administered to relieve pain in the back or neck caused by herniated discs or spinal stenosis. A facet injection is an injection into the facet joint. Facet injections may be given for painful arthritis of the spine.
