To determine how severe your condition is, and if you will require treatment, you will need to be examined by a doctor to understand the source of your symptoms.
Facet joint injections are often used with our patients at Alexander Bone and Spine Institute to help treat facet joint disease. The injection is a numbing medication injected into the joint space, and if facet joint disease is the cause of the pain, this procedure will result in immediate relief.
Once diagnosed, conservative treatments like medication and physical therapy are usually recommended.
When facet joint disease is left untreated, it can have a significant effect on your quality of life. Make an appointment today to discuss your condition and possible treatment plans.
