Understanding Facet Injuries
Often, people who experience back or neck pain after a car accident or other accident have facet joint injuries. Facet joint injuries are injuries to the joints of the vertebrae, and they are often diagnosed long after the accident. The doctors who treat facet injuries are interventional medicine doctors who inject a patient’s facets with medications.
If your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence or occurred on-the-job, talk to our Denver personal injury lawyers today. You may have underlying injuries – such as facet joint injuries – that can make a difference in your personal injury case.
