Facet Syndrome

Facet syndrome (or spinal arthritis) is one of the many chronic pain conditions treated at the Center for Pain Management. We have pain centers in Indianapolis, Greenwood and Lafayette, Indiana. Our pain management physicians, clinical pain specialists and medical staff have extensive experience treating this serious pain disorder.

Learn More About Facet Syndrome

Here is a brief description of Facet Syndrome. Each segment of the spine forms two facet joints (left and right) with the segment above and two facet joints with the segment below. Spinal arthritis involving these joints is often referred to as facet syndrome. Facet joint pain can also occur acutely following trauma such as a motor vehicle accident. Similar to other joints in the body, these joints are made up of bone covered in cartilage, nerve supply and ligaments to hold the joint together. These joints can become painful in the same ways as other joints including degenerative joint disease (arthritis) which develops over time, or acute sprain or subluxation.
