Facet Syndrome

Facet injuries are a common cause of lower back pain

Individuals with facet injuries tend to have pain while transition from a sitting to standing position, or with hyperextension

  • Facet joints in the lumbar spine help limit rotation side to side and bending side to side. 
  • Facet joints are commonly irritated chemically (injections or medications). 
  • Obese individuals often suffer from low back pain from standing in full extension. 
  • Individuals with pre-existing arthritic conditions will also be at a higher risk for this type of low back pain.
