Abstract:

The cervical zygapophyseal joints, or facet joints, have long been implicated as a source of neck pain. This article examines the epidemiology of pain arising from these joints and relevant anatomy and histology. An emphasis on clinical findings, examination, and imaging are presented, as well as a focus on whiplash-associated pain.
