Facet Syndrome

Facets are bony projections on the back side of the spinal vertebrae that articulate (come in contact) with each other to help stabilize the spine. They make up two of the three-pronged weight-bearing structures of the spine; the third being the vertebral disc itself. Hence, three entities of the spine help to maintain the erect posture in man, namely the disc and a pair of facet joints situated diagonally behind the disc.

Generally speaking, the pain pattern produced by facet syndrome is diffuse in nature, contrasted to the well-localied pain patterns in disc involvement. Facet syndrome may in fact produce pain in the groin, buttocks, flank, or back of the thigh and may radiate down the leg as far as the knee.

With a vast range of treatment protocols, physicians can now offer more patients lower back pain relief. The DRX9000 is designed to relieve pressure on the anatomical structures that cause lower back pain. This non-surgical procedure was developed for the treatment of pain and disabling lower back conditions caused by disc hernia ions, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and posterior facet syndrome.
