The facet joints are the joints in the spine that connect to one another to support the vertebrae. When the joints wear, they become irritated. The cartilage may then be affected, leading to facet disease.
Main causes of facet disease or facet syndrome include:
Facet syndrome may be accelerated if proper care of our bodies is not maintained. Traumatic injuries to the spine may also severely aggravate these joints, and cause accelerated deterioration. When suffering with facet disease, symptoms include neck or back pain, radiating pain down the extremities, stiffness, muscle spasms and soreness. Symptoms of a dull aching pain, headaches, loss of movement, and limited rotation may also be related to this condition.
