Facet Joint Pain

The deterioration of the facet joints, which help limit excessive motion and stabilize the spine. Facet joints are lined with cartilage and surrounded by a lubricating capsule, enabling the vertebrae to bend and twist.


Symptoms vary and can affect different regions of the spine and may include:

  • pain felt in middle to upper back, neck and shoulders

  • pain in lower back, back of thighs or buttocks

  • headaches

  • soreness, stiffness and general pain from inflammation


Facet Joint Pain can be caused by:

  • loss of cartilage that has worn away

  • damage to a joint when damaged, injured or stressed
