Facet Pain

The facet joints are synovial joints which help support the weight and control movement between individual vertebrae of the spine. These joints work together alongside the intervertebral discs to form a functional working unit. The facet joints direct the plane of motion at each vertebral segment which is dependant on their angle and orientation.

This spasm of adjacent muscles is the bodies way of protecting the area and tries to prevent you from moving and incurring more damage. Symptoms can vary greatly and be confused with disc related disorders as its possible for patients to report referred pain into the lower extremities.
