Facet Joint Syndrome

Facet Joint Overview

This condition is a deterioration of the facet joints, which help stabilize the spine and limit excessive motion.​The facet joints are lined with cartilage and surrounded by a lubricating capsule that enables the vertebrae to bend and twist.

Joint Damage from Facet Joint Syndrome

Facet joint syndrome occurs when the facet joints become stressed and damaged. This damage can occur from everyday wear and tear, injury to the back or neck or because of degeneration of the intervertebral disc.

 

Cartilage Loss

The cartilage that covers the stressed facet joints gradually wears away. The joints become swollen and stiff. The vertebral bones rub directly against each other, which can lead to growth of bone spurs along the edge of the facet joints.

Note from the Doctor:

“Ask our providers at Arizona Pain Treatment Centers what you can do about your facet joint syndrome and the treatment options available to you.”
