Cervical (neck) Pain
Often the result of injury or aging of the bones in the neck, producing mild to severe pain.
- Degenerative disc disease
- Facet arthritis (Arthritis)
- Herniated disc
- Post-surgical pain
Causing acute or chronic low back pain, DDD is a degeneration of one or more intervertebral disc(s) of the spine. A typical result of aging, DDD may greatly impact a person’s quality of life.
A syndrome in which joints cause back pain. Approximately 55% of patients have cervical vertebrae issues, and 31% have lumbar involvement. Facet syndrome can progress to spinal osteoarthritis, which is known as spondylosis.
Also known as a slipped disc, a condition resulting from a tear in the covering of a spinal disc. Typically results from age-related degeneration of the annulus fibrosis—although trauma, lifting injuries, or straining have been implicated.
The pain experienced after any one of a broad range of medical procedures or surgeries.
A set of conditions in which one or more nerves are affected and do not work properly (a neuropathy). The location of the injury is at the level of the nerve root (radix = “root”). Can result in pain (radicular pain), weakness, numbness, or difficulty controlling specific muscles. In a radiculopathy, the problem occurs at or near the root of the nerve, shortly after its exit from the spinal cord. However, the pain or other symptoms often radiate to the part of the body served by that nerve.
