Common Disabilities: Facet Syndrome | Disability Attorney in St. Petersburg FL

Most people don’t know what facet syndrome is, but those that do know that it is a painful condition of the back due to an irritation of the facet joints.

If you press either side of your spinal cord you will feel small joints in your back that connect the vertebrae above and below, the vertebrae allow for smooth movements of your spine.

Arthritis, degenerative disease, or any injury can damage the inside lining or the ligaments around the facet joints. This causes severe debilitating back pain.

It is not uncommon for facet injections to be given to help relieve the swelling and irritation of your back pain. However, if your facet syndrome makes it difficult or even impossible for you to work, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits if you have met the quarters of coverage requirements. For more information about your rights to Social Security Disability benefits as a result of facet syndrome, contact Social Security Disability lawyer Sharon Barrett, who specializes in helping Social Security Disability applicants with facet syndrome.
