Arthritis through degeneration, also known as osteoarthritis, results in the breakdown of the bone and cartilage of the spine over time from the natural wear and tear that comes with aging. Arthritis can occur in different areas of the spine causing impairing neck or low back problems but, among the different types of osteoarthritis, facet joint arthritis is among the most common of all the degenerative lumbar spine conditions.

The joints are covered with articular cartilage that function jointly with the spinal disc spaces between each vertebra to allow movement and flexibility on the spine. Although, like other joints in the body covered with articular cartilage, the facet joint cartilage will breakdown as a result of degeneration which makes them more prone to be affected by arthritis.
