Have you been diagnosed with facet problems or facet syndrome? Is this causing you lower back pain?
Well everything has to start somewhere! This is the first episode of Back Talking on Blab. The most exciting thing about Blab is obviously it is a visual medium. How better to teach someone about anatomy, show them an x-ray or a MRI, than with pictures! So here we go!
In this first episode, we are starting off with what I am calling “Spinal Grand Rounds.” We take a real live case, take a look at her history, examination findings, and imaging studies. We then present what is “normal” anatomy and function, and then move on to the pathological stuff. We then work our way through the information. Almost like you get to be inside my head as we sort through the pertinent information, how cool is that?
So in this first episode, we take a look at a young woman with several issues going on in her lower back. She has problems with a disc, degenerative disc disease, and loss of disc height. But what is the true cause of her troubles are her facet joints.
