SYNOPSIS

Two patients with cervical spine arthritis and ear pain were recently evaluated at our clinic. Injection of the C1–2 facet joints with local anesthetic plus corticosteroid resulted in relief of the pain. Therapeutic cervical facet injections may be indicated in cases of recalcitrant head and neck pain due to cervical spine arthritis.
