Facet joint syndrome is diagnosed in patients with local paralumbar tenderness occasionally radiating to thigh, iliac crest and rarely to the groin. Pain is usually worse when waking up from bed or trying to stand after prolonged sitting and could be exacerbated upon pressure, hyperextension, torsion and lateral bending. The correlation of physical examination findings to those of imaging and neurophysiologic studies will play a decisive role to proper patient selection. Emphasis must be given to the fact that apart from their therapeutic role, percutaneous corticosteroid infiltrations might as well provide diagnostic information concerning the origin of the pain.
