Symptoms related to cervical facet joint problems typically occur in and around the area of the affected facet joint, and include:
Intermittent and unpredictable episodes of pain and discomfort that can occur on occasion, including as often as a couple times a month or as infrequently as a few times a year.
Tenderness around the inflamed area.
Reduced flexibility in the muscles around the inflamed cervical joint.
Discomfort and pain in the neck while moving the head forward, backwards, and side to side
Pain associated with cervical facet syndrome may also radiate sensations of pain, tingling, or discomfort into the, shoulders and upper back area
Cervical facet syndrome is easily diagnosed by a medical professional. After completing a physical examination and reviewing a patient’s medical history, a doctor suspecting this condition will administer a diagnostic facet injection, which numbs the area in and around the facet joint. Pain that goes away after this injection is often the conclusive indicator supporting the diagnosis of cervical facet syndrome.
