About Facet Joint Injuries
Facet joint injuries can be caused by whiplash. Facet joints connect each of your vertebrae. Traumatic injury such as that caused by car accidents and/or slip and fall accidents can damage these facet joints causing pain and discomfort most commonly in the lumbar spine, cervical spine, or thoracic spine.
Facet joint pain is the most common cause of chronic back or neck pain following a motor vehicle collision.
Facet joint injuries typically do not appear on imaging studies. Facet joint syndrome is usually diagnosed on physical examination. Positive facet loading is indicative of facet joint syndrome. A diagnostic injection or block is often utilized to confirm the diagnosis.
If conservative therapy alone fails to provide adequate relief medial branch blocks, intraarticular steroid injections, or radiofrequency ablation may be utilized to provide additional relief. Radiofrequency ablation – also known as a rhizotomy – involves heating nerves with radiofrequency waves to decrease pain – essentially singing the nerve tips.
Nerves, however, regenerate over time and the procedure typically has to be repeated every few years. Our firm maximizes results on facet joint syndrome cases by routinely retaining the services of recognized life care planners.
