Facet Joint Syndrome is characterized by the deterioration of the facet joints, which help stabilize the spine and limit excessive motion. The facet joints are lined with cartilage and are surrounded by a lubricating capsule that enables the vertebrae to bend and twist. When these joints begin to break down, patients experience soreness, stiffness and pain from inflammation.
