View Our Pain Conditions Below

Arthritis

Arthritis is a common condition that is used to describe joint pain or joint disease. It is a condition that over 50 million adults and 300,000 children experience and is most common among women. There are over 100 different types of arthritis and the most common symptoms include swelling, stiffness, pain, and decreased range of motion.  More about Arthritus

Arthritis (Facet Joint Syndrome)

Facet joint syndrome (also called spinal osteoarthritis, facet joint osteoarthritis or spinal arthritis) occurs when the cartilage that line the facet joints in the spine deteriorate, allowing the bones to rub directly against each other. Spinal osteoarthritis may lead to back pain, symptoms of sciatica and other problems.  More about Facet Joint Syndrome

Cluster Headaches

A type of severe headache that tends to recur over a period of several weeks and in which the pain is usually limited to one side of the head.  More about Cluster Headaches

Cervical Radiculopathy

Cervical radiculopathy is the clinical description of pain and neurological symptoms resulting from any type of condition that irritates a nerve in the cervical spine (neck). More about Cervical Radiculopathy

Cancer Pain

Cancer pain may arise from a tumor compressing or infiltrating tissue, from treatments and diagnostic procedures, or from skin, nerve and other changes caused by a hormone imbalance or immune response.  More about Cancer Pain

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The carpal tunnel is created by the wrist bones on the bottom and a ligament over the top. The median nerve runs through the tunnel along with the flexor tendons to the wrist. Pressure within the tunnel can compromise the nerve and lead to carpal tunnel syndrome. More about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS/RSD)

Complex regional pain syndrome is an uncommon form of chronic pain that usually affects an arm or a leg. Complex regional pain syndrome typically develops after an injury, surgery, stroke or heart attack, but the pain is out of proportion to the severity of the initial injury. More about Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

Chronic Pain Syndrome (CPS)

Chronic pain syndrome (CPS) is a term used to define patients with severe persistent pain from virtually any source which has resulted in marked changes in behavior, self-imposed restriction of daily activities, and heavy, largely ineffective use of the healthcare system. CPS overwhelms all other medical symptoms to the point of becoming the problem itself. It is often accompanied by bouts of irritability, uncontrolled anger, and depression.

Compression Fractures

A compression fracture is a collapse of a vertebra. It may be due to trauma or due to a weakening of the vertebra This weakening is seen in patients with osteoporosis or osteogenesis imperfecta, lytic lesions from metastatic or primary tumors,[1] or infection.[2] In healthy patients it is most often seen in individuals suffering extreme vertical shocks, such as ejecting from an ejection seat. More about Compression Fractures

Coccydynia

This condition is an inflammation of the tip of the tailbone, called the coccynx. It causes pain and tenderness between the buttocks. More about Coccydynia

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease is a spinal condition caused by the breakdown of your intervertebral discs. As you age, your spine begins to show signs of wear and tear as your discs dry out and shrink. These age-related changes can lead to arthritis, disc herniation, or spinal stenosis, which can put pressure on your spinal cord and nerves and may cause back pain. Several treatments can help relieve the pain. More about DDD

Disc Displacement

Disc Displacement occurs when a disc has fallen out of its alignment in the backbone (spine) More about Disc Displacement

Fibromyalgia

A migraine is a severe, painful headache that is often preceded or accompanied by sensory warning signs such as flashes of light, blind spots, tingling in the arms and legs, nausea, vomiting, and increased sensitivity to light and sound. The excruciating pain that migraines bring can last for hours or even days. More about Fibromyalgia

Migraines

A migraine is a severe, painful headache that is often preceded or accompanied by sensory warning signs such as flashes of light, blind spots, tingling in the arms and legs, nausea, vomiting, and increased sensitivity to light and sound. More about Migraines

Headaches

Headache is a broad term that encompasses many different things. Headaches are pains that occur in any region of the head; they can occur on both sides the head or be isolated to a certain location. Headaches can radiate across the head from a central point or have a pincering vise-like quality. They can be sharp, throbbing or dull, appear gradually or suddenly and last for multiple days or less than an hour.

Herniated Disc

Injury or weakness can cause the inner portion of the disk to protrude through the outer ring. This is known as a slipped or herniated disk. This causes pain and discomfort. If the slipped disk compresses one of your spinal nerves, you may also experience numbness and pain along the affected nerve.

Joint Pain

Joint pain can be caused by injury affecting any of the ligaments, bursae, or tendons surrounding the joint. Injury can also affect the ligaments, cartilage, and bones within the joint. Pain is also a feature of joint inflammation (arthritis, such asrheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis) and infection, and rarely it can be a cause of tumors of the joint. Pain within the joint is a common cause of shoulder pain, ankle pain, and knee pain. Joint pain is also referred to as arthralgia.

Knee Pain

Knee pain is a common symptom in people of all ages. It may start suddenly, often after an injury or exercise. Knee pain may also began as a mild discomfort, then slowly worsen. More About Knee Pain

Kyphois

This minimally-invasive procedure treats spine fractures caused by osteoporosis. It is designed to provide rapid back pain relief and help straighten the spine.

Leg Pain

Leg pain refers to pain or discomfort anywhere in the leg. It can range from a dull ache to an intense stabbing sensation. There are many causes of leg pain. However, only some of these are medically serious.

Lumbar Radiculopathy

Radiculopathy is a condition due to a compressed nerve in the spine that can cause pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness along the course of the nerve. Radiculopathy can occur in any part of the spine, but it is most common in the lower back (lumbar radiculopathy) and in the neck (cervical radiculopathy).

Muscle Spasms

Muscle pain and spasms are spontaneous muscle contractions. Causes. Normal voluntary muscle contraction begins when electrical signals are sent from the brain through the spinal cord along nerve cells called motor neurons.

Musculoskeletal Pain

Anyone can experience musculoskeletal pain. It is most often caused by an injury to the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, or nerves. This can be caused by jerking movements, car accidents, falls, fractures, sprains, dislocations, and direct blows to the muscle.

Neck Pain

Neck pain is discomfort in any of the structures in the neck. These include muscles and nerves as well as spinal vertebrae and the cushioning disks in between.

Osteoarthritis

Degeneration of joint cartilage and the underlying bone, most common from middle age onward. It causes pain and stiffness, especially in the hip, knee, and thumb joints.

Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain is discomfort that occurs in the lowest part of the torso, the area below the abdomen and between the hipbones. It does not includepain that occurs externally in the genital area (vulva). Many women have pelvic pain. Pain is considered chronic if it continues to occur for more than 4 to 6 months.

Post Herpetic Pain

Postherpetic neuralgia is pain that lasts for more than a month after a shingles infection occurred. The pain may last for months or years.

Post Surgical pain

Pain after surgery

Post Laminectomy Syndrome

Failed back syndrome or post-laminectomy syndrome is a condition characterized by persistent pain following back surgeries. Failed backsyndrome (FBS), also called “failed back surgery syndrome” (FBSS), refers to chronic back and/or leg pain that occurs after back (spinal) surgery, usually after laminectomy.

Reflect Sympathetic Dystorphy (RSD)

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic pain condition that can affect any area of the body, but often affects an arm or a leg.

Sciatica

Pain affecting the back, hip, and outer side of the leg, caused by compression of a spinal nerve root in the lower back, often owing to degeneration of an intervertebral disk.

Shingles

An acute, painful inflammation of the nerve ganglia, with a skin eruption often forming a girdle around the middle of the body. It is caused by the same virus as chickenpox.

Spondylosis

A painful condition of the spine resulting from the degeneration of the intervertebral disks.

Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are injuries that occur in athletic activities. They can result from acute trauma, or from overuse of a particular body part.

Spinal Infection

Spinal infections are rare infections that can involve the intervertebral disc space, the vertebral bones, the spinal canal, or adjacent soft tissues. Discitis refers to an infection of the intervertebral disc in the spine. Osteomyelitis refers to an infection of the vertebral bones in the spine.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is narrowing of the spinal column that causes pressure on the spinal cord, or narrowing of the openings (called neural foramina) where spinal nerves leave the spinal column.

Spondylosis

A painful condition of the spine resulting from the degeneration of the intervertebral disks.

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Thoracic outlet syndrome is a rare condition that involves pain in the neck and shoulder, numbness and tingling of the fingers, and a weak grip. The thoracic outlet is the area between the rib cage and collar bone.

Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN)

Trigeminal neuralgia is a nerve disorder that causes a stabbing or electric-shock-like pain in parts of the face.

Whip Lash (CAD Syndrome)

Whiplash is an injury to the soft tissues of the neck from a sudden jerking or “whipping” of the head. This type of motion strains the muscles and ligaments of the neck beyond their normal range of motion.

Tendonitis

Tendons are thick cords that join your muscles to your bones. When these tendons become irritated or inflamed, it is called tendinitis. This condition causes acute pain and tenderness, making it difficult to move the affected joint.

Upper Back Pain

Although upper back pain is not a very common spinal disorder, it can cause significant discomfort and pain when it does occur. The most common causes of upper back pain are muscular irritation (myofascial pain) and joint dysfunction.

Lower Back Pain

Pain in the low back can be a result of conditions affecting the bony lumbar spine, discs between the vertebrae, ligaments around the spine and discs, spinal cord and nerves, muscles of the low back, internal organs of the pelvis and abdomen, and the skin covering the lumbar area.

Auto Accidents

A traffic collision, also known as a traffic accident, motor vehicle collision, motor vehicle accident, car accident, automobile accident, road traffic collision, road traffic accident, wreck, car crash, or carsmash occurs when a vehicle collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, road debris, or other …

Work Injuries

A work accident, workplace accident, occupational accident, oraccident at work is a “discrete occurrence in the course of work” leading to physical or mental occupational injury.

Personal Injuries

Personal injury cases are legal disputes that arise when one person suffers harm from an accident or injury, and someone else might be legally responsible for that harm. A personal injury can happen at work, in a traffic accident, because of a faulty product or a faulty repair, because of a mistake during medical treatment, or because you slipped and fell on a wet floor or pavement.
