Facet joints allow for small movements between adjacent vertebrae in the spine. Facet joint syndrome, or osteoarthritis, occurs when facet joints become worn or torn, creating bone spurs, or enlarging the joints.
It is usually the result of another condition plus an injury you may have had. Degenerative discs, osteoarthritis, cysts and even infection.
Acute episodes of facet joint pain come and go and can sneak up on you. They usually occur a few times per month or per year. Leaning backward creates more discomfort than while leaning forward.
Three words: Posture. Posture. Posture. Knowing why you have developed facet syndrome is really important. This can help us fit you with a brace that will best align your spine in order to take as much pressure off the vertebrae as possible.

There are two joints in your lower back, and they sit on each side of your spine. Their main job is to carry the weight of your upper body when you stand or walk and shift that load to your legs. They can get too loose and also get stuck.
Osteoarthritis of the spine is common with aging. It involves two things. A breakdown of the cartilage in the facet joints, which link together the spine’s vertebrae. Abnormal bony growths, called osteophytes or bone spurs develop on the vertebrae.
The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body and begins from nerve roots in the lumbar spinal cord in the low back and extends through the buttock area to send nerve endings down the lower limb. When it becomes irritated it creates pain and discomfort.
Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal. It can be caused by several problems, including overgrowth of bone or other tissue or by a herniated disc. When the spinal canal gets too narrow, it can squeeze and irritate your spinal cord or nearby nerve roots.
A Herniated disc is an abnormal bulge or breaking open of a spinal disc. These spinal disc are what separate your back bones (vertebrae). It may push on the nerves and cause pain, numbness, or weakness in the area where that nerve travels. Most herniated discs happen in the lower back.
Degenerative disc disease is not really a disease but a term used to describe the normal changes in your spinal discs that separate your back bones (vertebrae). As the space between the vertebrae gets smaller, there is less padding between them, and the spine becomes less stable.
