Om Discovering & Treating the Facet Syndrom
When the mechanisms of automation in the human body are in trouble the result is morbid manifestations, often appearing as clinical entities of obscure aetiology. These can in a surprising number of cases be enlisted as facet syndromes since they respond to treatment when treated as such. They involve a wide range of medical specialties apart from orthopaedics. The diagnosis of these syndromes is difficult since the channels used belong to the autonomous nervous system. The latter, guarding its secrecy, is unwilling to provide in-formation to the examiner. What it allows to be revealed is hardly an invitation to solve a puzzle. Once the association between the symptoms and the facets is suspected, then the local injections are those who can verify this. The author presents a plethora of such cases involving 12 medical specialties. They all have been treated successfully and repeatedly, the same way, over his 45 year career.
