Help..! Medial Branch Block tomorrow....My Torso??

Hi All,
     Having a lumbar medial branch block tomorrow. I have the worst twisted torso and it's driving me crazy! Will the procedure give me some relief from this constant twistand sensitive oblique (right side, where back pain is around the bend) and this twisted torso agony? 

Also- do they use anti-inflammatories during this to give me longer relief or just the anaesthetic?

Thanks all....feel better, please!
