What is facet arthritis?

Suffering from facet arthritis (or pain within the joints of your spine) can impact your day-to-day life significantly. The natural wear and degeneration of your joints will become apparent as you age, and it can also be triggered by certain medications, posture, repetitive movements, and traumatic injury. If you have diabetes, gout, Lyme disease, obesity, or psoriasis, then these conditions can put you at a higher risk of facet arthritis.

Joint pain may be keeping you from enjoying your life or from moving without pain. We recommend that it is time to seek the expertise of our board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Mark Valente. When you develop facet arthritis, it is best to get treatment as early as you can to avoid significant damage to your joints, bones, and nervous system. To diagnose your facet arthritis, Dr. Valente can identify where the pain is through a process called pain mapping with facet joint injections. These injections can be performed in our on-site AAAASF-accredited surgical center for your convenience. This can also serve as a method of treatment. Dr. Valente can also advise you to try other conservative methods of treatment, such as:

  • Massage therapy
  • Rest, as needed
  • Pain relievers
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Steroid injections
  • Nerve stimulation

When these interventions are no longer delivering satisfactory pain relief, Dr. Valente may recommend a radiofrequency rhizotomy to ablate nerves within the aching joint. Our orthopedics team can help you navigate your treatment options for facet arthritis pain. We have an experienced, caring team at Preston Surgery Center ready to assist you in managing your pain.
