Facet Disease may also be known as other things as well. typically it’s referred to as facet arthritis, facet joint syndrome, or facet hypertrophy. All of which refer to an equivalent pathology.
Although Facet Disease can be diagnosed at any vertebral section of the spine, it’s most commonly diagnosed within the lower spine simply because of the additional weight and range of motion that the lumbar spine supports.
What causes Facet Disease?
There are many various ways in which a patient might become diagnosed with facet sickness.
Facet Disease can be degenerative — this implies that no specific trauma/accident caused it. it was merely caused because of natural wear and tear on the side joints from aging and daily stress placed on the spine.
Facet Disease can be caused by trauma — if a patient was ever in an accident or slip and fall, this may compromise the structure of the spine. Certain conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniations, or fractures (which usually result from trauma) can cause facet joints to overwork and become inflamed or unhealthy.

The staff at Laser Spine Orlando and Dr. Molloy are extremely professional and puts the needs of the patient ahead of themselves. I was able to get an appointment right away with Dr. Molloy after filling out a form online and within two weeks was able to get a much-needed surgery to help relieve my back and leg pain. I love these guys. -Patricia C.
I want to thank Dr. Molloy and the staff at Laser Spine Orlando for giving me my life back. Before seeing them I could barely walk and my pain didn’t allow me to do anything around the house. After my surgery, I was pain-free within a week and was able to care for my husband without the thought of having to lie down and rest due to pain. -Margaret W
