1 doctor agrees

In brief: Mild Facet joint

I think you meant to type (Facet Joint ) not Face.
Lumbar MRI evaluate the facet joints and can show degenerative changes ( fluid in joint, or hyper trophy which is enlargement ) and these changes can narrow the spinal canal and / or neural foramen narrowing ( where nerve exit the spine.
