Have you considered getting an injection of your facet joints? That might decrease some of the pain related to arthritis in the facets, while not compromising your ability to get ADR or fusion in the near future. I had this procedure done myself recently at facets of level C5/C6. It helped a lot and will have a longer lasting procedure related to the facets soon. At the same time, I plan to have ADR at the same level on May 5th.

Good luck to you!
