Facet Syndrome Symptoms and Causes
Facet Syndrome is one of the most common causes of neck and back pain and may also include other symptoms such as loss of flexibility and pain that is aggravated by stretching or turning. It can occur anywhere in the spine and develops in facet joints, the small joints located between each vertebra. In many cases, it is caused by a traumatic injury involving forces that shear the capsules inside the joints.
At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we take a personalized approach to treating Facet Syndrome that includes a thorough consultation including a complete family and medical history and physical examination. Our lower patient-to-provider ratio gives us the time we need to obtain an accurate diagnosis, discuss your treatment goals and develop an individualized treatment plan using proven treatment methods. In many cases, Facet Syndrome can be effectively treated using a combination of non-surgical methods including anti-inflammatory and pain medications, weight reduction, physical therapy, traction, facet injections and more. In severe cases where non-surgical treatments have failed to provide relief, minimally invasive endoscopic surgery (also known as “band-aid back surgery”) may be an option. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is pleased to be one of the Southeast’s leading providers of endoscopic spine surgery. Using this advanced surgical technique, we are able to offer positive outcomes with fewer complications and a shorter recovery time as compared to traditional back surgery.
