Facet Joints

These are small intervertebral joints in the cervical and lumbar areas of the spine. These connecting joints are also known as facet joints since their smooth, almost elegant form is reminiscent of a polished precious stone. Their degeneration leads to an increase in friction and wear and thus to joint inflammation.
