About Facet Joint Pain
Facet joint pain is discomfort that is experienced when one or more of the joints in the spinal canal are fractured, strained, or damaged. This typically occurs in older patients or in individuals who have suffered a back injury or trauma. The pain can be felt anywhere on the spine, including the neck and lower back. Symptoms often include muscle spasms, muscle tension, stiff neck, and chronic dull pain. Tricity Pain Associates has helped countless patients across the Texas Hill Country who are struggling with facet joint pain. If you suspect that your discomfort is from an injured back joint, we encourage you to contact our pain care facility in New Braunfels or Seguin, TX to meet with one of our certified interventional pain physicians. We can help bring the relief you deserve.

"I cannot begin to explain how much Dr. V as helped me over the last year. I came to him at the recommendation of my rheumatologist due to an undiagnosed pain in my lower back. The pain was so intense I was unable to find any comfortable position much less sleep. From my first visit, I realized Dr. V was different. He spent time with me, listened to me, and was genuinely concerned about the ulceration (later diagnosed as lupus panniculitis) on my lower back and the immense pain it was causing. He was able to provide me with immediate relief. After my surgery, his office worked to get me in as soon as possible to adjust my medication. When Dr. V saw me hunched over, barely able to move, and walking with a walker, he told me he would take care of me, and he did. He adjusted my medication, and I was able to return to work when the surgeon released me. Besides his medical knowledge, Dr. V always made me feel that he cared about me as a person not just a patient. I would recommend Dr. V to anyone who is living with pain and wants their life back."- M.H. / Google / Dec 26, 2020

Facet Joint Pain Treatment
There are several treatment options to choose from to help alleviate the symptoms of facet joint pain. Typically, our first recommendation will be to try conservative remedies, like physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medications. However, if those treatments don't provide significant improvement, then we will suggest more advanced options, such as steroid injections or radiofrequency ablation. We can also discuss how often you should return to our office for treatment to maintain your results.
