The facets are located in between the vertebrae in the spine. Through age, injury, or disease the small sacks of fluid can shrink and do not allow the vertebrae to move easily. The nerves near the facets can become irritated and inflamed from the rough, rubbing facets. A mixture of Depomedrol and Xylocaine is injected to stop the pain.
This procedure is for compression fractures, radiculopathy, and spinal arthritis.
