Facet Joint Syndrome is when the facet joints (joints in the spine) become stressed and irritated causing pain and inflammation. Several aspects of our everyday life cause this ailment; from everyday wear and tear to a traumatic injury to the back or neck. Spinal degeneration of a disc can cause Facet Joint Syndrome. The Facets or joints in your spine have high amounts of nerve endings and these nerve endings when irritated let you know there is something wrong by giving you pain.
At Phoenix Pain Treatment we would combine Facet Injections with chiropractic manipulation therapy and other physical modalities like Ultra Sound, electrical stimulation such as TENS or interferential current and even spinal decompression to decrease the pain of Facet Syndrome.
