Facet Joint Injury

San Jose Neck Injury Lawyers

Facet joints are small joints that are used to stabilize the vertebrae and allow the neck and lower back greater mobility. Since excessive rotation could lead to spinal cord or nerve damage, these facet joints are important for keeping the spine healthy and intact. Coated by cartilage, facet joints slide on each other and can wear down with time and stress. Trauma to these joints can also cause them to tear, making the spinal cord more vulnerable to damage.

Those who have suffered injuries to the facet joints as the result of serious car accidents and other traumatic accidents require extensive medical treatment, often including surgery. If you have been hurt, it is important to pursue compensation from those who are accountable for your injuries. At the San Mateo law firm of Galine, Frye & Fitting, our lawyers can represent you after a facet joint injury.

While facet joint injuries are fairly common, they can cause serious disabilities in people who suffered them. In the worst cases, they can even impact the spinal nerves. In most cases, however, the symptoms are similar to those of a herniated disc or a disc fracture. Symptoms include:

  • Lumbar and cervical facet joint pain
  • Persistent pain in the inflamed joints and loss of muscle flexibility
  • Discomfort when leaning forwards or backwards
  • Pain in the lower back, upper leg and coccyx
  • Pain, tingling or numbness at the joint or up into the arms and fingers
