What Services are Available?
Neck and back pain can originate from a number of sources which is why you need the right specialist to pinpoint your problem. Some of the most common causes of Neck pain may include:
These small spongy discs act as shock absorbers for the spine and keep it flexible. When a disc bulges or breaks, it is called a herniated, slipped, or ruptured. The most common symptom of a herniated disk is Sciatica, which can cause pain or numbness in the buttocks and legs. This can often be diagnosed during an examination but may also require tests such as a CT scan or MRI for confirmation.
If you are experiencing spinal degeneration you may suffer from lower back pain that often continues into the hips and thighs and buttocks. Physical therapy, epidural steroid injections, and rest are often prescribed.
One of the most common causes of chronic neck pain are these bony growths. A bone spur causes pain when it presses on nerves, tendons, or ligament.
Spinal Cord Compression
When a spinal cord becomes compressed by bone fragments from a fracture, tumor, abscess, or ruptured disc, you need to be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. Prompt and proper treatment can prevent any long term disability.
A pinched nerve can be caused by injury or damage to a nerve due to spinal cord compression, stretching, or constriction. A pinched nerve will usually heal with extended rest, but surgery is sometimes required.
