Can anybody answer this question for me.
I'm about to get medial branch blocks that
my doctor ordered. His order was for c3-6.
My insurance approval came back and says
medial branch blocks approved for c4-5, c5-6.
Is this correct or has something been overlooked
from the doctors' notes. I believe my painful spasms
are coming from a 2mm retrolithesis of c-3 over c-4.
I understand the nerve root that exits the c3-4 level
is the fourth nerve root that branches off to the
medial branch to the facet joint. Is it just different
teminology for the same joint?
