Pain of any kind, at any age, is a sign that something is amiss. Pain is the way your body signals that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. Since we can adapt, minor aches and pains are often shrugged off. While they may go away, if the underlying problem remains unattended, the problem may slowly worsen until it becomes more difficult and expensive to resolve.
While each person will experience symptoms differently, any of the following could indicate a back pain:
- Localized back pain
- Shooting pains
- Stiffness and achy
- Radiating pain into the legs and feet
- Numbness in the legs and feet
- Weakness in the legs and feet
Neck pain is often related to loss of the normal curve of the neck. This irritates
the nerves in the cervical area and localises the pain accordingly. Usually the
cause is pinched nerves in the cervical area or inflammatory processes around
them. In this case, to achieve a long-term effect, it is necessary to rehabilitate the
soft tissues and to treat all spinal dysfunctions.
A recent studies have shown that the majority of headaches are caused by the neck do to abnormal spinal alignment and abnormal postures. The most commonly from the loss of the normal lordosis or cervical curve and forward head posture. We employ several techniques to correct or improve the cause and get you back to reduced or headache-free living!
A herniated disk refers to a problem with one of the rubbery cushions (disks) between the individual bones (vertebrae) that stack up to make your spine.
A spinal disk is a little like a jelly donut, with a softer center encased within a tougher exterior. Sometimes called a slipped disk or a ruptured disk, a herniated disk occurs when some of the softer “jelly” pushes out through a tear in the tougher exterior.
Sciatica pain can vary widely. It may feel like a mild tingling, dull ache, or a burning sensation. In some cases, the pain is sharp, shooting, and sometimes debilitating.
The pain most often occurs on one side. Some people have sharp pain in one part of the leg or hip and numbness. The pain or numbness may also be felt on the back of the calf or on the sole of the foot. The affected leg may feel weak.
Whiplash refers to an injury of the neck that is the result of a sudden excessive force that causes the neck and head to jerk forward and then backward or vice versa, such as in a auto crash. The injury typically affects muscles, discs, nerves, ligaments, and tendons in the delicate structure of the neck. It can also occur in contact sports, other activities, or work accidents that might involve a sudden impact. Although whiplash is a common injury experienced by millions of Americans every year, it can result in structural damage that is difficult to detect and correct. If not properly diagnosed and treated, these injuries can undermine the structural balance of the body and set off a “domino effect” that can exacerbate over time producing a wide variety of symptoms from headache and extremity pain or numbness, to loss of mobility or even mental function.
Symptoms are frequent burning, tingling, or numbness in the hand and fingers. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve running through your wrist becomes pressed or squeezed.
There may be no symptoms of spinal stenosis, or symptoms may appear slowly and get worse over time. Signs of spinal stenosis include:
Pain in the neck or back
Numbness, weakness, cramping, or pain in the arms or legs
Pain going down the leg
Symptoms may increase with normal activities such as walking.
