Back Pain

These are some of the conditions we treat but not all.

We treat PAIN.  All types of pain.

Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)

This condition is a weakening of one or more vertebral discs, which normally act as a cushion between the vertebrae. This condition can develop as a natural part of the aging process, but it may also result from injury to the back.

Lumbar Radiculopathy

This condition is an irritation or compression of one or more nerve roots in the lumbar spine. Because these nerves travel to the hips, buttocks, legs and feet, an injury in the lumbar spine can cause symptoms in these areas. Sciatica may result from a variety of problems with the bones and tissues of the lumbar spinal column.

Mayofacial Pain

This is a chronic pain disorder. It affects the muscles and the connective tissue (called the "fascia") that surrounds them. With this syndrome, you may develop sensitive areas on your body called "trigger points." When these places are pressed or stressed, you feel pain. This condition can affect muscles throughout your body.

Post Laminectomy Syndrome

This condition, also called "failed back surgery syndrome," is a type of chronic pain. It can develop in some people after spine surgery.

Spinal Compression Fracture

This is a collapse of vertebral bone. It can affect one or more vertebrae. Compression fractures typically develop in your mid or lower back. This can change the shape of your spine.

Spinal Stenosis

This is a type of chronic, long-lasting, pain. In most cases, it develops in an arm or a leg that you have previously injured. With CRPS, you may have unexplained pain that won't go away. It may be severe, and it may spread.

Spondylolthesis

This condition occurs when a lumbar vertebra slips out of place. It slides forward, distorting the shape of your spine. This may compress the nerves in the spinal canal. The nerves that exit the foramen (open spaces on the sides of your vertebrae) may also be compressed. These compressed nerves can cause pain and other problems.

Spondylosis

This is a crack that forms in a narrow bridge of bone at the back of a vertebra. A vertebra is one of the bones that forms your spine. Often, this injury happens in the lumbar spine. It can happen to people of all ages. But, we most often see it in children and teens. That's because their bones are still growing.
