We aim to resolve and improve (not merely MASK) your pain!
Disc Injury: Bulge, Herniation, Degeneration
Intervertebral discs are critical parts of the spinal system, but they are poorly innervated and vascularized. This makes them susceptible to acute and chronic injuries, including:
- Degenerative disc disease: progressive thinning and degradation
- Bulge: the inner gel-like substance protrudes out of alignment into the nearby joint cavity
- Herniation: the outer disc tears and the inner gel-like fluid leaks out
Sciatica & Other Types of Nerve Impingement
Spinal nerve roots exit the spine and branch into other nerves. They can become impinged and irritated by injured discs, narrowed joint spaces (common in osteoarthritis or stenosis), and more rarely tumors.
Your right and left sciatic nerves (in your lower spine) are the largest in your body. If one becomes compressed, it can cause leg numbness, pain, and weakness. Back pain may also occur. Other nerves in the body can become compressed, too, in conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome (median nerve compression in the wrist) and cubital fossa syndrome (ulnar nerve compression in the elbow).
This injury (common in car accidents) is caused by forceful flexion and extension of the neck due to a sudden stop or change in direction of the body. It causes neck pain and stiffness, shoulder pain, headaches, jaw pain, arm numbness and more.
We manage a variety of personal injuries including muscle strains, ligament sprains, plantar fasciitis, runner's knee, chronic low back pain, tech neck and so on- all of which can severely disrupt your ability to function properly in your day-to-day life.
