Arthritis of Spine

What Causes Arthritis of Spine?

Facet joint pain is typically caused by one of three factors that bring on the discomfort and slow you down:

Joint Injury or Trauma

An accident that causes damage to your back, neck and/or spine may result in an expedited loss of cartilage, as well as bring about pain and loss of motion.


This type of arthritis deals with the wear and tear of the cartilage between the joints over time, although it can be onset early for various reasons.


An infection from toxins or other outside sources, or from an existing disease, may affect the facet joint and the cartilage between them. Once the cartilage is lost, the increased bone friction results in pain and stiffness.

How a Pain Doctor Can Help

Spinal Arthritis – Facet Joint Arthritis Symptoms

The symptoms you experience with facet joint arthritis are very similar to those that you would see when arthritis affects other joints in the body. You should seek the help of a pain doctor if you experience the following symptoms and notice them getting worse with time:

  • Pain in the Upper or Lower Neck
  • Stiffness in the Neck or Back
  • Reduction in Your Range Of Motion, Especially in the Neck, Spine, or Hips
  • Redness at the Location of the Pain

Your chances of suffering from facet joint arthritis increase if you have a family history of this form of arthritis, you are female, you have existing or previous injuries, you are obese, or are 40 years of age and older.

Facet joint arthritis is a progressive disease that gradually eats away at your cartilage. The sooner you contact us, the better we will be able to help you manage your symptoms and pain.
