What is Facet Joint Syndrome?:

What is Facet Joint Syndrome? http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 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:

Joint Damage http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 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 an inter vertebral disc. Jacksonville Pain Physician

Cartilage Loss:

Cartilage Loss http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 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 the growth of bone spurs along the edges of the facet joints.

Cervical Symptoms:

Cervical Symptoms http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 Pain from facet joint syndrome differs depending on which region of the spine is damaged. If the upper (cervical) spine is affected, pain may be felt in the neck, shoulders, and upper or middle back. The person may also experience headaches.

Lumbar Symptoms:

Treatment:

Treatment http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 Facet joint arthritis is first treated conservatively with rest, ice, heat, anti-inflammatory medications, and physical therapy. In addition, facet joint blocks may be administered not only to diagnose facet joint pain but also to treat it. If non-surgical methods fail to relieve pain, a facet rhizotomy or bone fusion may be performed.
