Understanding Facet Syndrome

Regency Square Care Center is dedicated to providing high-quality care for individuals experiencing facet syndrome, a condition that causes lumbar and cervical arthrosis joint pain. Facet syndrome, also known as facet joint syndrome or spinal osteoarthritis, is a degenerative condition affecting the cartilage and synovial joints in the spine.

Symptoms and Causes

The symptoms of facet syndrome vary from person to person, but commonly include localized pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility in the affected areas of the spine. The condition is often caused by age-related degeneration, wear and tear, or traumatic injuries. Poor posture, repetitive movements, and obesity can also contribute to the development of facet syndrome.

Diagnosis and Treatment

Diagnosing facet syndrome involves a thorough evaluation of the patient's medical history, physical examination, and imaging tests such as X-rays or MRI scans. At Regency Square Care Center, our experienced healthcare professionals specialize in diagnosing and treating facet syndrome. Our team will develop an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Treatment options may include:

  • Physical therapy: Our skilled therapists will guide you through exercises and techniques to improve joint function, reduce pain, and increase flexibility.
  • Medications: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or pain relievers may be prescribed to alleviate pain and inflammation.
  • Injections: Corticosteroid injections may be administered to reduce inflammation and provide temporary pain relief.
  • Alternative therapies: We offer complementary treatments such as acupuncture or chiropractic care to manage facet syndrome symptoms.

Preventing Facet Syndrome

While facet syndrome cannot always be prevented, certain lifestyle modifications can minimize the risk of developing this condition. Maintaining a healthy weight, practicing good posture, engaging in regular exercise, and avoiding repetitive strain on the spine are important preventive measures. Our dedicated team at Regency Square Care Center can provide education and guidance on how to prevent facet syndrome.
