All parts of the spine undergo degenerative changes as we age. The purpose of this chapter is to describe the degenerative process and its clinical consequences. The disc degenerative process will be discussed; its consequences on the facet joint and osteophyte formation are by: Spinal/joint injections are commonly used to diagnose the cause of severe back pain and to administer pain relief to patients who suffer from arthritis.

Administering a local anaesthetic allows doctors to determine whether the facet joint is the source of back pain, while injecting medication can offer arthritis patients fast and effective pain.

Cervical spine infection in the setting of dental procedures or oral infections has been described in the literature, but only three other reports have involved the facet joints. We present a case of a cervical facet joint infection with epidural abscess secondary to a dental infection in a diabetic orthopaedic surgeon.
