What does Severe facet joint hypertrophy mean? I have this extensively in my lumbar and cervical spine.
Severe DDD. Klippel Feil Deformity. Cervical Foraminatomy that turned into Lamy. I have tried so many treatments, therapy's and medications.


  • Thanks for this link. I've been horrified with my personal levels of pain yet don't have herniated discs, etc. like others on this site do. I've kept asking myself if I could seriously handle the pain of a herniated disc - because the pain w/o is so bad. This link reads that the acute pain of my facet problems (amy) mimic that of a herniated disc. Whew. I'm not nearly as terrified of the future - though I understand the "may mimic" part.

    Very Best Regards,
