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.
