i have cervical "facet joint disease" as well as minor cervical kyphosis. my disks show a little wear and tear, but nothing dramatic. i am in considerable pain, and am very disabled. i am to have a neural ablation soon. my understanding is that given my situation, should the ablation not work, i will have no more surgical options.
have any of you heard differently? is fusion ever considered in the absence of major disk pathology? i've tried physical therapy, chiropractic, etc. without success.
