Hi guys- great to be part of the community!

Have recently been diagnosed with advanced Facet Joint Arthritis. This has followed a spinal fusion surgery 7 years ago. (I'm still only in my early 20's!)

Has anyone had any experiences with facet joint injections or neurolysis procedures? Did they improve your symptoms or worsen them?

Has anyone else had facet joint arthritis following a spinal fusion?

What are the best ways you guys have managed spinal arthritis in the long term?

Thanks so much!!
