Facet Joint Syndrome

Facet Joint Syndrome is when the facet joints either weaken or become stressed and damaged. Several aspects of our everyday life cause this ailment; from everyday wear and tear to a specific injury to the back or neck and degeneration of a disc. Cartilage eventually wears away from protecting the facet joints, which can cause a variety of symptoms depending upon which region of the spine is damaged.

This physical ailment is usually treated conservatively at first with lots of rest, ice, heat, medication and physical therapy. If all of these methods fail, a facet rhizotomy or bone fusion may be needed to alleviate the symptoms.

If you suffer from severe back pain, our experienced pain management specialists at NY Spine & Rehab Medicine can provide you with the effective treatment for back pain in New York.
