Facet Joint Osteoarthritis and Causes of Low Back Pain

As a doctor of NUCCA Chiropractic in Redwood City, Dr. Tsiglieris has met with several patients with low back pain. Notably, most of these individuals experience backaches due to a long list of health concerns, including cervical subluxation, facet joint osteoarthritis and degenerative disc diseases. Have you come across these medical terms? Did you recently get diagnosed with one of these conditions? 

If you’re like the hundreds of patients seeking the help of Dr. Tsiglieris, you likely have plenty of questions about low back pain too. Let’s help you ease your worries and expand your knowledge on common back pain-causing health conditions through our brief discussion.


Why The Lower Back Hurts

Facet Joint Osteoarthritis

The facet joints support the backside of the vertebral column. Sadly, sometimes, these connective structures can get inflamed because of arthritis. This can cause swelling or tenderness in the affected section of the spine, such as the lower back. Over time, the condition can cause the cartilage material between the vertebral bones to break down. Sadly, this results in excessive friction on the spinal column.   

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative discs are quite common among aging individuals. However, they can sometimes develop because of a previous traumatic injury such as a rear-end car collision. Studies note that disc degeneration can affect various spine sections, including the lumbar region. Doctors refer to this as lumbar degenerative disc disease. Notably, this health concern can put add-on mechanical stress on the back and trigger chronic backaches.

Cervical subluxation

As the go-to authority in NUCCA Chiropractic in Redwood City, Dr. Tsiglieris helps patients address neck bone misalignments as soon as possible. That’s because even the slightest changes in the upper neck bones can impact various sections of your spinal column, including the lower back.
