About Facet Joint Pain
Facet joint pain, also referred to as facet joint disease, is pain that occurs in the spine, neck, or lower back as a result of inflammation or traumatic injury. Facet joints are synovial joints located in pairs within each vertebra of the spine. Consisting of cartilage and synovial fluid, these joints allow for flexure of the back to aid in movement, stability, and function. Injury or damage that occurs to this cartilage or other areas of the facet joints may result in facet joint pain, facet arthropathy, or facet joint syndrome. These conditions may lead to loss of mobility, painful muscle spasms, and other uncomfortable symptoms and generally require professional care for pain relief. At Tricity Pain Associates, our leading team of physicians uses advanced technology to help diagnose and treat the symptoms of facet joint pain. To learn more about our minimally invasive pain management solutions, we invite you to schedule a consultation at our Round Rock or South Austin, TX location.

"I have nothing but great things to say about Dr.Kim ! This is my first experience with a pain management doctor and I highly recommend Dr.Kim .Nerve and chronic pain can be debilitating and that's exactly what I was experiencing 6 months ago when I first came to Dr.Kim.Wasnt sure what to expect but after Dr.Kim quickly diagnosed me with stenosis and a bone spur causing the pain and inflammation he wasted no time in treating me with a series of injections, pain medications and physical therapy. While I am not quite back to 100% I am in a MUCH BETTER place than I was 6 months ago.Dr.Kim is truly sincere about your needs when it comes to injuries and pain and he is a GREAT listener!
