How do we treat facet syndrome? Good posture is the key component of relieving facet syndrome symptoms. We examine how you carry yourself so that we can determine how you can improve the way you sit, stand, and move about. We also look for compensation patterns in other parts of your body and aim to relieve the pressure on both your back and the surrounding muscles that are strained from working overtime.
