Facet Joint Injections....question

Hi all, its been awhile. Ive had previous laminectomy on my neck and past surgeries on lumbar area.
My neck is acting up again. Doc wants to try injections for pain relief and inflammation. My biggest question not answered by doctor is this.........Doesn't it just stop the pain, imflammation and NOT fix the spondylosis issues? My facets wont be touched at all surgically, so isn't it a fact the rubbing that caused the irritation wont go away. So isnt there a possibility of permanent damage ? I cant find any information at all Googling. Im hoping somebody may have had the same question answered.
