What causes neck pain?

Updated: Nov 8, 2023

❗️Facet joint syndrome can be a significant source of back and neck pain. It is caused by irritation of the joints between the vertebrae on the back side of the spine.

☝🏻The facet joint can become inflamed from a variety of causes such as a bad night’s sleep, prolonged poor posture, awkward lifting and others. When the joint gets irritated it triggers pain signals in nearby nerve endings.

❗️In Facet joint syndrome, the facets get inflamed which causes pain and loss of motion in the joint. In turn, the muscles in the area can stiffen and spasm leading to further pain and decreased motion.

Traction of the head and neck is effective, it helps to open the facet joints and decrease the pressure that is creating pain.
