Facet syndrome articles

Facet syndrome is the condition in which spinal facet joint’s articular surfaces gradually lose their protective cartilage covering. This deterioration results from years of bending, twisting and flexing. This degeneration occurs as part of the natural aging process and is largely unavoidable. However, that does not mean that the symptoms that may arise — including pain, weakness, tingling and numbness — cannot be managed.
