Facet syndrome is a condition that occurs when the facet joints in your spine become inflamed or damaged, causing pain and discomfort in the back and neck.
The facet joints are the small joints between each vertebra in your spine that allow for movement and flexibility. Facet syndrome can be caused by a variety of factors, including injury, aging, or degeneration of the spine.
If you're experiencing symptoms of facet syndrome, it's important to seek specialist treatment. This will help ensure an accurate diagnosis and an effective treatment plan that's tailored to your specific needs.
Facet syndrome typically causes pain in the neck or back, specifically in the area of the affected facet joint.
If you have dull aching pain or a sharp, stabbing sensation in your back, it could be facet syndrome. The pain may also be accompanied by stiffness, limited mobility, and muscle spasms.
Facet syndrome can affect people of all ages, but it's more common in older adults due to the natural wear and tear that occurs in the spine over time.
