Lumbar Facet Joint Pain

Lumbar Facet Joint Pain is also commonly referred to as lumbar facet joint syndrome, facet joint disease, facet joint sprain, but mostly it is a pain caused by a facet joint injury

What is Lumbar Facet Joint Pain?

The facet joints are the connections between the bones of the spine. The nerve roots pass through these joints to go from the spinal cord to the arms, legs and other parts of the body.

These joints also allow the spine to bend and twist, and they keep the back from slipping too far forward or twisting without limits. Like the knee joint, they have cartilage to allow smooth movement where two bones meet. The joints are lined with the synovium and have lubricating joint fluid.

When these joints get swollen because of injury or arthritis, it causes pain. Joint action can stiffen – known as hypomobility. Alternatively, joint movement can become excessive – known as hypermobility.
