Medial Branch Blocks

Medial Branch Blocks

by Stephanie Meadows
The spine consists of 33 vertebrae within your spinal column. The vertebrae contain multiple critical elements, responsible for enabling our spine to be able to function properly. Each of these vertebrae is connected by two joints called facet joints. The facet joints are then connected to medial nerves, which are responsible for carrying pain signals away from the spine to the rest of the body.
