Facet pain is that creaky door feeling in your back in the mornings when you’re trying to get out of bed. It takes awhile to loosen up, perhaps you need a shower and a cup of coffee and you’re finally able to stand up. Its also the deep achy pain after a long days work. Sometimes it improves with medications like ibuprofen or naproxen. Anti inflammatory medication often provides temporary relief because the facet pain is generally caused by an inflammatory process.
