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
  • Headaches
  • Pain that increases with twisting or arching
  • Pain that radiates to the buttocks or thighs
  • Difficulty rotating or moving the head or neck

Your Denver Injury Case is our Cause

We personally work with you throughout the duration of your case in pursuit of the compensation you need and deserve.
