The response to capsular blocks should be more or less the same as medial branch blocks. There are no other treatments other than rhizotomy or fusion that can change the outcome of a degenerative facet.

Removing the spur off a degenerative joint only works on only one joint, the great toe. Removing the spur off a very degenerative facet does not resort the worn-out articular surface nor does this procedure restore the smooth joint surfaces that have eroded away.
