What is Facet Syndrome?

Facet syndrome, also known as osteoarthritis, is a common cause of back pain which normally occurs in adults over 50 and can result from normal wear and tear, injury, or degeneration of the disc(s).

Facets function as guides to align the vertebrae of the spine and are the bony protrusions extending from the back of the vertebrae.

Facet Syndrome occurs when the back of the spine which interconnects to one another (the facets) compresses and irritates the soft tissue in between. This can inflame the nerves exiting the spine causing back pain and other painful symptoms.
