Medial Branch Nerve Block

Find your mobility again.


If your movement is limited by pain, a medial branch nerve block may offer the relief you need to get your life back.

What is a medial branch nerve block?

A medial branch nerve block treats nerves supplying the facet joints, the parts of your spine which allow twisting and bending. Experts will locate the painful, inflamed area and administer a block to help you regain mobility.

What to Expect from a Medial Branch Nerve Block

This is an outpatient procedure using local anesthetic. A needle guided by an X-ray will deliver medication to the specific facet joint that is painful and inflamed.

Often, you’ll only need a few injections in a single area to feel relief, but you may repeat these approximately three times every six months. Most patients feel a reduction in pain within a few minutes.
