About Facet Syndrome

Facet syndrome is a disorder that affects the spine, causing pain in the neck and/or back. Within each segment of the spine, there are two facet joints, a vertebra, and a large disc. Each of these elements allows for stable, flexible movement in all angles. With facet syndrome, the facet joints have become damaged, inflamed, or deteriorated due to overuse. In most cases of facet syndrome, individuals complain of elevated discomfort and pain upon standing or sitting for lengthy periods of time. At Tricity Pain Associates, our team of pain management specialists offers advanced diagnostic tests and treatments for facet syndrome to alleviate pain and discomfort.

What aggravates facet joint pain?

How long does it take for facet syndrome to heal? 
The amount of time it will take to heal will be dependent on your weight, age, and ability to manage your activity level. A sprain can take up to 2 – 4 weeks to heal once it is managed correctly. For more information on facet inflammation treatment, contact our office.

Facet Syndrome Treatment

Though there is no way to reverse facet syndrome, there are several treatments that can help alleviate pain and treat the symptoms of the condition. In most instances, lifestyle changes may be first recommended, which may include weight loss or low-impact exercises, such as stretching and walking. Additional remedies could consist of improving your posture through slight alterations when standing, sitting, and sleeping. More invasive treatments, such as physical therapy, medications, or steroid injections, may be recommended if lifestyle changes prove to be ineffective. During your consultation at our San Antonio facility, our team of pain management experts will create an effective treatment plan specifically for your needs and concerns.
