Spine Pain

  • Discogenic Pain manifests itself after a vertebral disc is damaged, usually due to a degenerative disease. The pain often occurs after small movements are mae from sitting, bending forward, standing, or walking.
  • Facet Syndrome typically is caused by normal wear and tear but can also occur from injury, developing in the joints between vertebra. The pain is typically described as sharp and radiating.
  • Myofacial Back Pain is a condition affecting a muscle or group of muscles and the protective tissues surrounding them. The pain manifests itself through spasms and tenderness.
  • Radiculopathy occurs when nerves are compressed or irritated when passing through the spinal column. Pain manifests itself in various ways in radiculopathy, but commonly is described as shooting and tingling. 
  • Referred Back Pain typically radiates from the lower back into the buttocks, groin and upper thighs. It can vary widely in severity, tending to be dull, achy and move around the body.
  • Spinal Stenosis occurs when the spinal cord is narrowed in one or more parts. This narrowing causes pressure and pain. The pain may manifest itself in the back, legs or both.
