Scoliosis is an abnormal, side-to-side curvature of the spine. Many people are born with scoliosis, while some people develop scoliosis over time due to factors related to aging or injury. Depending on how big their abnormal spine curvature is, a person with scoliosis may experience back pain, shoulder pain, abnormal posture, and even impaired balance or breathing.
Spinal discs are small round structures in the spine that provide a cushioning effect for the spinal column and absorb shock forces. Discs also provide mobility and stability in the spine. A herniated disc happens when the inner gel-like substance of a disc leaks out through a tear in the outer layer of the disc. The damaged disc material can compress or irritate the nearby structures, including the spinal nerve roots, which can cause sharp or shooting pain that radiates into an arm or leg.
Spinal stenosis is a common type of age-related back pain that develops when bony spaces in the spine begin to narrow. This can reduce mobility in the spine and increase pressure on the nerves and joints.
Often called a "wear and tear" problem, osteoarthritis happens when the protective cartilage inside the joints degrades and thins down, This leads to painful bone-on-bone rubbing in the joints, stiffness, and inflammation. We see osteoarthritis often in the hips, knees, and spine.
It is normal to lose some bone density with age. But for people with osteoporosis, their bones become brittle, which increases the risk of painful bone fractures.
Auto Accident Injuries and Sports Injuries
Common auto accident injuries and sports injuries our patients struggle with include whiplash, concussions, joint dislocations, muscle strains, tendonitis, and ligament sprains.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that about 20 percent of Americans experience chronic pain or pain lasting longer than three months. We strive to help our patients identify the root cause of their chronic pain while implementing personal treatments to help them find fast relief that lasts.
