Facet denervation/sclerotherapy

The causes of chronic #back or #neck pain can be manifold. Facet joint syndrome is often responsible. It describes back or neck pain that gets worse when you bend back or turn to the side. The #pain can be dull or stabbing, be constant or pulsating and even be accompanied by #muscle cramps. The affected #joints can hurt just by touching them. In the upper #neck area, pain in the #facet joints can lead to #headaches. In the middle back, the pain can move forward into the #chest or the #lower abdomen. In the lumbar spine, the pain spreads to the hips or buttocks.

If previous therapeutic measures such as injections, infiltrations or physical therapies have not brought any improvement, so-called facet denervation / sclerotherapy can help and the back pain can be switched off for a long time.
