Medical Branch Block for Lumbar/Sacral Pain

Welcome to Genesis Pain Management, where we’re dedicated to transforming the landscape of chronic pain treatment. If you’re seeking relief from lumbar or sacral pain, our cutting-edge medical techniques and compassionate care are here to make a meaningful impact on your well-being.

Understanding Medical Branch Block:

A Medical Branch Block is a minimally invasive procedure designed to diagnose and alleviate pain originating from the facet joints in the lumbar (lower back) and sacral (pelvic) regions of the spine. Facet joints are vital for stability and movement in the spine. However, when they become inflamed or damaged, they can lead to persistent pain that affects your daily life.

Our Approach to Medical Branch Block:

At Genesis Pain Management, we recognize the profound impact that lumbar and sacral pain can have on your quality of life. Our team of experts employs the latest medical advancements to offer effective relief without resorting to drugs, surgeries, or invasive procedures.


Before proceeding with treatment, our skilled physicians conduct a comprehensive assessment to determine whether a Medical Branch Block is the appropriate course of action for you. This may involve a review of your medical history, physical examinations, and diagnostic imaging tests.

The Procedure

The Medical Branch Block procedure entails the precise injection of a local anesthetic and sometimes a corticosteroid medication into the affected facet joints or the nerves transmitting pain signals from those joints. This injection temporarily interrupts pain signals, providing immediate relief and helping our specialists pinpoint the source of your pain.

Personalized Treatment Plan

Each patient’s pain is unique, and so is their journey to relief. At Genesis, we believe in crafting individualized treatment plans. If the Medical Branch Block proves successful in alleviating your pain, it can serve as a foundation for further pain management strategies or guide more targeted therapies.

A Medical Branch Block for Lumbar/Sacral Pain is a minimally invasive procedure aimed at diagnosing and relieving pain originating from the facet joints in the lower back (lumbar) and sacral regions of the spine. During this procedure, a local anesthetic and potentially a corticosteroid are injected near the medial branch nerves that transmit pain signals from the facet joints to the brain.

Our skilled physicians utilize fluoroscopic guidance to precisely locate the medial branch nerves adjacent to the facet joints. Once located, a combination of a local anesthetic and corticosteroid is injected to provide temporary pain relief and reduce inflammation, potentially leading to long-lasting pain reduction.

Individuals experiencing chronic or acute pain in the lower back, buttocks, hips, or legs, which could be attributed to facet joint issues, may be suitable candidates. Our pain management specialists will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if this procedure is appropriate for your condition.

Following the Medical Branch Block, you may experience temporary pain relief due to the anesthetic. This relief serves as both a diagnostic tool and a potential treatment. If significant relief is achieved, our team will discuss further treatment options. Some mild soreness at the injection site is normal and should subside within a short time.
