Chronic Back Pain


Chronic back pain is an epidemic in the United States today. Current statistics show that up to 85% of Americans will face this issue at some point in their life. It is the #1 cause of disability in the United States. Surgery is one of the most common methods to treat back and neck pain conditions making spine surgery the second leading surgical procedure. However surgery has often lead to more severe longer term problems which led the American Medical Association to coin the term "Failed Back Surgery Syndrome" and dedicate resources to study why there is such a low success rate.

Chronic Back Pain Causes Include:

  Fractures and Dislocations
  Degenerative Disc Disease
  Disc Herniation and Bulging Disc
  Facet Syndrome/Synovitis/Capsulitis
  Osteoporosis
  Osteoarthritis/Degenerative Joint Disease
  Spondylolisthesis
  Fibromyalgia
  Sprains and Strains
  Compression Fracture
  Cancer
  Discitis
  Kyphosis
  Lordosis
  Ligament Hypertrophy
  Obesity
  Trauma
  Pregnancy
  Radiculopathy
  Sciatica
  Scoliosis
 

Chronic Neck Pain


Chronic Neck Pain is a debilitating condition that often leads to migraine headaches, numbness and tingling in the hands, dizziness, shooting pain, and spaciness.

Common Causes of Chronic Neck Pain Include:

  Degenerative Disc Disease
  Neck Strain
  Whiplash
  Herniated Disc
  Pinched Nerve
  Worn Joints
  Muscle Strains
  Bone Spurs
  Rheumatoid Arthritis
  Meningitis
  Cancer
 

Bulging and Herniated Discs


When too much pressure builds up in the disc due to a variety of environmental conditions, the disc loses its ability to regularly regenerate and gives way to the pressure. This causes the center material of the disc to push out toward the spinal cord and nerve roots. The process can occur without any symptoms or warning until there is direct pressure on the nerve causing pain. This is one of the most common reasons for back surgery. Non-Surgical Decompression Therapy is designed to rehydrate and reposition the disc back into place to allow it to normally regenerate without surgical intervention and has an 88% success rate.

Symptoms include localized or radiating pain, numbness, tingling, or muscle weakness in the arms or legs.

Causes of Bulging and herniated Discs Include:

  Loss of disc hydration due to fail pump mechanism
  Improper lifting
  Long term degenerative changes
 

Degenerative Disc Disease


Degenerative Disc Disease is a progressive conditionthat occurs due to an accumulation of mechanical stress on the disc creating an inability for the disc to regenerate and rehydrate. As the disc gets compressed because its regenerative pump mechanism has failed, the spinal segment above and below get closer to each other. As the segments reach a certain tipping point, the body reacts by growing more bone in the form of spurs or osteophytes to make up for the lost space and to preserve the exiting nerve. Unfortunately this bone formation often grows into the nerve canal itself creating even more debilitating problems. Degenerative disc disease is commonly a precursor to disc bulging or herniations and stenosis.

Common symptoms include deep achy pain that comes and goes without reason. Pain worse in the morning. Intermittent episodes of sharp stabbing pain and muscle soreness.

Causes of Degenerative Disc Disease Include:

  Long term postural changes or poor posture
  Smoking
  Long term mechanical stress to the spine
  Back injuries
 

Stenosis


Spinal or Foraminal Stenosis is a serious common cause of back and neck pain and occurs when the canal, that the spinal nerve travels through as it exits the spine, becomes smaller or more narrow resulting in compression on the nerve. This is most common in the lower part of the back and is usually accompanied by degenerative disc disease or disc herniations or protrusions.

Symptoms includes sharp localized or shooting pain down the arm or leg. Numbness, weakness, and burning or tingling in the arm or leg. More serious symptoms include loss of bowl or bladder control and are an emergency.

Causes of Foraminal Stenosis Include:

  Acute accident or injury
  Secondary effects from untreated long term degenerative disc disease
  Long term spinal stress or postural changes.
 

Sciatica


Sciatica is a term to describe a specific cluster of symptoms involving irritation to the sciatic nerve that runs from the lower back through the buttock and down the back of the leg to the feet. The sciatic nerve is derived from multiple nerve roots that extend from the spine.

Symptoms include sharp or shooting pain, tingling, or numbness in the buttock or behind the leg. More serious symptoms include changes in gait (walking) and muscle atrophy.

Causes of Sciatica Pain Include:

  Herniated Discs
  Bulging Discs
  Degenerated Discs
  Bone Spurs
  Injury that results in compression of the nerves
  Piriformis Syndrome
  Tumors
  Pregnancy
  Spinal Stenosis
  Spondylolisthesis
