The first key to understanding facet joint pain, also known as facet joint syndrome, is understanding the anatomy. There are numerous facet joints in the body; they are the small joints behind and between each of the vertebrae in the spine, allowing you to bend forward and backward but controlling twisting motion of the spine. Everyday wear and tear, arthritis, or a single injury can damage these joints, damaging the joint’s cartilage and creating chronic and sometimes debilitating low back pain.
