Facet Joints

What are facet joints? The lumbar spine has small joints, called facet joints. These joints allow the spine to bend and twist; however, they also keep the spine from bending too far or twisting without limits. Nerve roots from the spinal cord pass by the facet joints and continue to the back, legs, and other parts of the body.
