Facet joint syndrome is a type of osteoarthritis that affects the spine’s facet joints, which are located on each vertebra and facilitate twisting motions. This condition most often develops in the neck (cervical spine) as a result of the body’s natural aging process, but traumatic injuries like falls or car accidents can increase the risk of osteoarthritis occurring at a younger age.
The doctors at the ORA Orthopedics Pain Center of Excellence in the Quad Cities help patients find meaningful solutions to their neck or back pain. A combination of conservative therapies such as muscle relaxants, physical therapy, and facet joint injections are often suggested to relieve the discomfort associated with facet syndrome. Other patients may benefit from minimally invasive surgery, although this option is usually only considered after non-surgical treatment options have been explored without success. Our doctors create personalized treatment plans to ensure each patient undergoes the best possible course of treatment for his or her unique situation.
