Facet Joint Syndrome Attorney in DenverDenver automobile accidents can cause a variety of serious and chronic injuries —including facet joint syndrome. This debilitating and painful syndrome can affect nearly every aspect of a person’s life and leave them with chronic disabilities. If you or someone you love has suffered facet joint syndrome after a traumatic accident, it is important to contact an experienced Colorado personal injury attorney immediately to review your case. If your injuries were the result of another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation and lost wages. What is Facet Joint Syndrome? Facet Joint Syndrome is a collection of painful symptoms that affect the facet joints of the spinal cord. The location of the symptoms depends largely on the location of the initial injury. Injuries to the lower back facet joints will cause lower back discomfort, while an injury to the cervical vertebrae in the neck will cause neck and head pain. After the initial injury, the cartilage cushion that covers the bones may begin to wear away. This exposed bone causes painful symptoms as they rub together. In addition, they can pinch the delicate nerves that supply the facet joints causing even more intense pain. Symptoms of Facet Joint Syndrome:
- Pain in the lower back, neck or shoulder
- Pain that increases with twisting or arching
- Pain that radiates to the buttocks or thighs
- Difficulty rotating or moving the head or neck
