Medial Branch Block


A medial branch block is an injection that can block pain signals travelling along the medial branch nerves. The medial branch nerves carry signals from the facet joints in your spine. If the joints become inflamed, this can be felt as back, neck or leg pain. The medial branch block interrupts the pain signals with a local anaesthetic and anti-inflammatory steroid.
