Low Back Pain 
along the Facet Joints

Standing up straight or leaning backwards puts more pressure
on the facet joints of your lumbar spine. 

  

  

  

  

  

Is the pain in your low back...

worse pain with standing up straight or leaning backwards?

If this makes your pain worse you may have arthritis or other problems with these facet joints. 

not worse pain with standing up straight or leaning backwards?

If standing up straight or leaning backwards does not make your pain worse it may not be related to the facet joints.
