Posterior Facet Syndrome
Posterior facet syndrome is a condition which typically develops as a natural consequence of aging. As the facet joints deteriorate over time, the spine loses flexion and bones begin to rub together. The result is the reduced ability to rotate the neck and spine, and bone spurs developing around the joints. Besides reduced mobility, pain is a common symptom of posterior facet syndrome.
The condition can develop in a younger person who suffers from arthritis, and greatly affects normal mobility. The pressure on the joints can become quite severe, which in turn results in chronic pain and discomfort. While PFS affects mobility, increasing mobility can actually help to greatly alleviate the symptoms of the condition in many sufferers.
