Expert Facetogenic Pain Treatment in Manhattan, Provided by Matthew Spiegel, MD


Facetogenic pain is a common condition and refers to chronic pain originating from the facet joints of the spine. These joints, located between the vertebrae, can become inflamed or damaged due to injury, arthritis, degeneration, obesity, overuse, and poor posture. This facetogenic pain is typically less well defined but localized to a specific area of the spine, and may be accompanied with stiffness, muscle spasms, limited range of motion, and headaches. Facetogenic pain can also cause referred pain in other areas of the body, such as the buttocks, legs, or shoulders.
