Cervical facet syndrome
of a Cervical Facet Syndrome
The pain arises from irritation and local inflammation of one or more facet joints. Thus, the nerve can be involved when it exits and create pain that radiates. In addition, a spinal disc injury may also be present.
Facet syndrome is caused by an injury to the cartilage of the facet joint, also resulting from excessive movement, particularly in rotation and extension.
This irritation can be caused by different types of incidents:
- False moves
- Quick lifting of a load
- Fall or trauma
- Prolonged poor posture
- Repetitive work or activity under adverse conditions
- Increased lumbar lordosis e.g. pregnant women, obese people
- Facet arthritis
Cervical Facet Syndrome
Prognosis in case of lumbar sprain
By the way, with the help of manipulations and favorable conditions, one can see a noticeable improvement in 14 days and remission in 4-5 weeks. On the other hand, if one waits several weeks before the start of the treatment, the recovery may be longer, also, the patient may have sequelae (slight persistent pain, recurrence, weakness in the neck, etc.).
Take anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants and pain relievers as needed.
Avoid activities that increase pain (hyperextension and rotation).
Taking facet injections may provide some relief but do not solve the basic problem with the joint.
