The facet syndrome is re-examined, including a review of the anatomy, physiology, clinical symptomatology, referred pain patterns, pathomechanics, pathology and roentgenological findings. Observations on 1063 patients indicate that increase in sacral base angle, posteriority of gravity line, increase in lumbosacral disc angle and decrease of lumbar mensuration tend to increase the incidence of facet syndrome. The Activator lift technique is briefly discussed.
