neck and back pain
The bones (vertebrae) that form the spine in the back are cushioned by discs. These discs are round, like small pillows, with a tough, outer layer (annulus) that surrounds the nucleus.
Located between each of the vertebrae in the spinal column, discs act as shock absorbers for the spinal bones. A herniated disc (also called bulged or slipped) is a fragment of the disc nucleus that is pushed out of the annulus, into the spinal canal through a tear or rupture in the annulus.
Discs that become herniated usually are in an early stage of degeneration. The spinal canal has limited space, which is inadequate for the spinal nerve and the displaced herniated disc fragment. Due to this displacement, the disc presses on spinal nerves, often producing pain, which may be severe.
Degenerative joint disease, which is also referred to as osteoarthritis (OA), is a common “wear and tear” disease that occurs when the cartilage that serves as a cushion in the joints deteriorates. This condition can affect any joint but is most common in knees, hands, hips and spine. It is commonly associated with:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome, also called median nerve compression, is a condition that causes numbness, tingling, or weakness in your hand. It happens because of pressure on your median nerve, which runs the length of your arm, goes through a passage in your wrist called the carpal tunnel, and ends in your hand.
The Knee is made up of three components: bones, ligaments, and tendons. Knee pain is the most common musculoskeletal complaint that brings people to their doctor. With today's increasingly active society, the number of knee problems is increasing. Knee pain has a wide variety of specific causes and treatments.
Auto Accident Injuries Most common injuries suffered as a result of a motor vehicle accident while often hurt instantly, it can take days to feel the full effects of. Such injuries include, whiplash, head injury, scrapes and cuts, herniated discs, broken bones, knee and shoulder trauma, and PTSD.
Various types of shoulder injuries can also result from an auto accident.
Torn rotator cuff
Shoulder tendonitis Shoulder impingement
Our orthopedic staff diagnoses these car accident injuries using our on-site x-ray and open MRI services. Treatment for these various shoulder injuries can range from physiotherapy to surgery, depending on the severity of the injury.
Problems within the hip joint itself tend to result in pain on the inside of your hip or your groin. Hip pain on the outside of your hip, upper thigh or outer buttock is usually caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues that surround your hip joint.
Foot and heel pain
This condition can happen to anyone at any age but is more prevalent in older populations or with those who are involved in strenuous physical activity for extended periods of time. It is important to understand the symptoms, causes, and treatments for a bulging disc to prevent the condition from worsening. Symptoms include, tingling in fingers, arms, neck, and shoulder. Pain in feet, thighs and buttocks. Difficulty holding things or trouble walking.
Spinal stenosis - is a narrowing of the spaces within your spine, which can put pressure on the nerves that travel through the spine. Spinal stenosis occurs most often in the lower back and the neck. Some people with spinal stenosis may not have symptoms. Others may experience pain, tingling, numbness and muscle weakness. Symptoms can worsen over time. There are two main types of Spinal Stenosis cervical and lumbar which is more common. Lumbar being lower back and Cervical up towards the neck.
