Probably safe!: Facet Joint injections are useful for controlling referred pain from your spine. Most parasitic infections do not affect your spine! Trichinella affects your muscle Neurocysticercosis the brain! Toxolasmosis can affect muscle and brain! Depends on the parasite and its body location! Most parasites are in the GI tract !
