Nerve Root & Facet Block
Lumbar facet joint disorders most commonly cause lower back pain that is characterized by a localized ache with some degree of stiffness. This pain is usually worse in the morning or after periods of inactivity.
Depending on the number of facets affected, the severity of the condition, and the possible involvement of a nearby nerve root, one or more of the following signs and symptoms may occur:
The bones (vertebrae) that make up a healthy spine look like cylinders stacked in a column. Kyphosis occurs when the vertebrae in the back become more wedge shaped.
- Localized pain. A dull ache is typically present in the lower back.
- Referred pain. The pain may be referred to the buttocks, hips, thighs, or knees, rarely extending below the knee.
- Radiating pain.
- Tenderness on palpation.
- Effect of posture and activity.
