If you have two or more of these symptoms YOU probably have Facet Disease and Facet Disease Syndrome. We can help. 



 Facet Joints

Facet Joints are these posterior (rear) joints of the spine where the bone  above and the bone below form a joint (see picture). These joints aid in movement and stability of the spine.  The bone on either side of this joint has a cartilage covering. The joint also has direct nerve innervation. Meaning there is a nerve inside the joint. (see lower picture) The joint is then wrapped in a capsule to protect it.

These facet joints can become inflamed and painful. They can go through degeneration or deterioration much like a tooth cavity and the surface of the facet joint can be eaten away. They can even have edema or fluid.  This often leads to bone spurs and boney overgrowth of the facet which can put pressure on nerve roots. Facet disease or degenerative facet disease as doctor call it can be with degenerative disc disease or separate from what's going on with the disc. Once it becomes acutely painful we call it Facet Syndrome.
