Facet Joint Syndrome

Facet Joint Syndrome - Essential info, expert advice and product recommendations

What is it?

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.

Why do I have it?

It is usually the result of another condition plus an injury you may have had. Degenerative discs, osteoarthritis, cysts and even infection.

When does it hurt?

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.

The Bracing Experts Advice:

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.
