Corticosteroid injections target swollen and damaged joints in your neck, allowing for better spine flexibility and less pain.
19% of the United States population, which amounts to 39 million people, have persistent neck pain. Neck injections can help reduce pain caused by the inflammation of your neck’s facet joints. Chronic neck pain can be indicative of a larger health problem, such as degenerative disc disease, arthritis or osteoporosis. While facet injections cannot cure these diseases, they can provide long-term relief from the painful symptoms.
