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.

Causes of Facet Syndrome

Face 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, ultimately causing back pain and other painful symptoms.

Symptoms of Facet Syndrome

If you suffer from any of these symptoms, chiropractic adjustments are a great alternative back pain treatment.

Symptoms include:

  • Numbness and tingling
  • Burning pain
  • Achy soreness along the nerve path
  • Radiating lower back pain
  • Weakness in the arms or legs
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
