Facet Joint Syndrome occurs as a result of aging, injuries, or constant pressure on the facet joints. Most of the damage that impacts the facet joints is from typical wear-and-tear on the body, but damage can also arise from an injury to the back or neck or degenerative disc disease. The process of Facet Joint Syndrome starts when the cartilage covering the facet joints begins to deteriorate, causing the joints to swell and stiffen. This causes the vertebrae bones to make contact with each other without any cushion between then. This occurrence may result in bone spurs on the edges of the facet joints, and it may begin to affect other areas near the spine such as the cervical area (neck, shoulders, and head) and the lumbar area (hips, buttocks, and back of the thighs). In extreme cases, doctors may recommend surgeries such as a Facet Rhizotomy or Facet bone fusion that can both lead to months, maybe even years, of therapy and treatment before the patient begins to feel normal again. However, at Willen Wellness in New York we specialize in non-surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy to provide pain relief from face syndrome.
Spinal Decompression Therapy has been effective for many of our patients who are suffering from Facet Joint Syndrome. With our Spinal Decompression Therapy device, the vertebrae are slowly stretched apart to reduce the pressure on the facet joints. This process helps relieve pain in the affected areas, while creating negative pressure that helps restore the cartilage surrounding the facet joints. The specialized algorithmic software is designed to provide comfort during Spinal Decompression Therapy without the abrupt tugs that cause muscle spasms and pain like some traction therapies. The reason we use Spinal Decompression Therapy at Willen Wellness is to help the patient find natural ways of healing back pain without having to take a list of prescription drugs or endure spinal implant surgery.
At Willen Wellness in New York, we understand the pain you are experiencing from Facet Joint Syndrome. Our Spinal Decompression Therapy can help stretch your spine in the affected area to promote self-healing. Essentially, we work diligently to restore muscle strength and extremity functionality and find pain relief in the areas experiencing symptoms.
