Re: what is uncinate and facet degenerative changes

Facets are joints at the back of the vertebrae and the uncinate process is a part of the bone as well. Either way, both have degenerative changes...meaning arthritis. You are probably having bone spurs(osteophytes) develop on the bone and joints and causing problems.

Is this in your neck??
