Facet Disease / Facet Syndrome

by | Back Pain

1

Facet joints (a.k.a. Zygopophyseal joints)  are located on the back (posterior) part of the spine and  their alignment allow for movement, such as bending forward or backwards and twisting of the neck and upper back.

Most of the time, these facet joints move  with no problem, and many people don’t even realize that the joints exist.  It is when the capsule surrounding the joint or the protective cartilage breaks down that most people feel neck pain or back pain, and that pain usually occurs with movement, especially bending sideways or backwards.
