Back Injuries

Back injuries usually relate to damage to the bones, discs, muscles and/or other tissues in the back. This damage generally results from trauma or common wear (degeneration). Lower back pain commonly occurs as a result of poor posture and bad lifting habits. Frequency of these two factors adds to the severity and regularity of the pain experienced. Spine and intervertebral disc disorders can be serious and very painful.

We treat some of the most common forms of back pain and injury that occur in the head and neck (cervical), upper and middle back (thoracic), lower back (lumbar), and tailbone area (pelvic). These conditions include:

  • Herniated discs
  • Sprains
  • Strains

We provide treatment for all areas of the spine, including injuries to the spinal cord, spinal fractures, spinal tumors and scoliosis.

Degenerative Disc Disease

This painful condition results from the degeneration of the intervertebral discs found within the spine. These discs sit between neighboring vertebrae. The discs use cartilage to form small joints along the vertebrae, which allows for back movement. The degeneration of these discs can result in severe pain which can be near constant. If the degeneration of the discs is focused in the lumbar (lower back area), pain may also spread to the hips, buttocks or thighs.

If non-surgical treatments (such as physical therapy, chiropractic treatments, anti-inflammatory medications, etc.) do not produce results within two to three months, surgery may be recommended. Several different surgeries can be performed dependent upon the patient’s needs and circumstance.
