Facet Joint Injections - Anyone had success?

Hello, I have had facet injections and medial branch blocks done on C 4-7 without any success. I did have cervical (spine) epidurals for over a 4 year period that worked well. The pain in my neck was greatly reduced. In my lumbar spine, I had RFA, radio frequency ablation done and that was very successful.

Hi @sandytoes14
Thanks for the information. I am due to have the RFA in a few weeks. I’m hoping I get some kind of relief. It is mind blowing that nothing is seeming to help. Fingers crossed!

RFA was a hit for me too. Injections never seemed to work well for me.

@shellsk24 I was wondering if you had RFA done and if so was it successful?

I just had the same thing c3-7 yesterday could you tell me if yours were extremely PAINFUL? I think the Dr didn't let me get NUMB? But I think it has helped
