Disc Degeneration

One of the most common causes of low back and neck pain, disc degeneration is caused by wear and tear on a spinal dish . It typically consists of low-level chronic pain with episodes of more severe pain. At times it can also cause weakness, numbness, and shooting pains in the arms and legs.

Herniated Disc

Spinal discs serve as shock absorbers between the vertebrae, supporting the upper body and movement. When a disc herniates and leaks some of its inner material, the disc may aggravate a nerve, triggering possible back pain. A herniated disc is typically seen in patients between the ages of 35 and 50.

Spondylolisthesis

This is a spinal condition that affects the lower vertebrae. It causes the lower vertebrae to slip forward onto the bone directly, creating a very painful friction in the back. Aside from lower back pain, symptoms can include stiffness in the back and legs, and lower back tenderness.

Spinal Stenosis

Also known as spine narrowing, spinal stenosis occurs when one or more bony opening reduce space for the nerves. Depending on where and how much narrowing occurs within these openings, a spinal nerve or spinal cord could become compressed and typically cause pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness.

Trauma/Fractures

Trauma and fractures to the spine may be caused by a number of events. The symptoms are typical of spinal injuries; back pain, tightness, stiffness, and sometimes even headaches. If you believe you’re suffering from spinal trauma or fractures, talk with Dr. Fras about potential treatment plans.
