Facet Syndrome is defined as an irritation
of one or more of the joints on the back of the spinal vertebrae.
Facet syndrome is most often caused by whiplash and athletic injuries where
the spine and/or neck spends a lot of time in extension. Young gymnasts, for
example, are at risk for facet syndrome.
Pain from facet syndrome feels like a dull ache. Symptoms include:
• Neck pain
• Radiating pain (into the upper back)
• Loss of neck movement.
Pain from facet syndrome is often confused
with pain from other vertebral structures nearby. It is important
to get a diagnosis from a qualified physician to rule out
other conditions such as disk disease.
