Facet Syndrome

Facet syndrome occurs when the zygapophyseal joints (Z-joints) from the second cervical vertebra in the neck (C2) to the first sacral vertebrae in the lower back (S1) cause pain. The Z-joints, which are commonly called facet joints, are a pair of joints on the back of the spine. Facet syndrome can progress to spinal osteoarthritis, also known as spondylosis.
