Lumbar Facet Syndrome and Its Treatment
Unlike the intervertebral discs which are dumb old structures sitting between the vertebrae, absorbing impact and rolling with the punches, the facet joints are the spine's prima donnas.

The good news though is that the facet joints' prolific blood supply means that they settle down and recover easily if you treat them right.
