Facet joint syndrome is an intermittent and unpredictable pain that people experience at the joint between connected spinal vertebrae. Each vertebrae has a facet joint on each side of it. These joints contain a lining of cartilage that allows them to glide smoothly over the ligaments surrounding the joint.
Facet joint pain occurs when the joint is degenerating, which also causes friction between the joint and symptoms such as pain, tenderness, and stiffness. A decline in spinal flexibility is also common. Facet joint syndrome can be caused by an injury, aging, and maximum pressure being placed on the joints.
