Lower Back Pain

Lower Back Pain

Lower Back pain is a very common condition that affects millions of adults in the United States. It is estimated that approximately 2% of the workforce in the U.S. files for workers’ compensation because of back pain. Oftentimes, back pain can be relieved with conservative treatment options including ice, heat, physical therapy, analgesic medication and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). However, patients who experience more severe and chronic back pain are often treated with narcotics and invasive surgery.

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease refers to pain, weakness, or numbness that occurs from a degenerated disc in the spine, typically due to aging. If you’re experiencing back pain along with a lack of feeling or prickling sensations, you may be suffering from this condition.

Failed Back Surgery Complications

Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

Failed back surgery syndrome, or FBSS, only occurs in those patients who have experienced a laminectomy, or surgical removal of the lamina, a piece of a bone that is located in the spine. This surgical procedure is for those who suffer from sciatica, and performed when the there is a disc bulge present. By removing the lamina, the hope is that the pressure will be relieved from the nerve. However, sometimes this surgical procedure will not have the desired results, and the patient will continue to have sciatic pain. Sometimes, the patient will also experience numbness and tingling post surgery. When this occurs, the patient is then diagnosed as suffering from post-laminectomy or failed back surgery syndrome.

Facial Pain Procedures

Chronic facial pain is used to describe any pain felt in the face or neck area and is commonly caused by problems with a person’s jaw, such as repeated clenching of the jaw or grinding of the teeth, or a misaligned bite.

Facet Joint Disorders

Facet Joint Disorders

The facet joint (or zygapophyseal joint) is a type of joint found between nearly every pair of vertebrae (or spinal bones). These are responsible for range of motion in the spine, as well as the stability of this part of the skeleton. They also ensure the appropriate connection between a pair of vertebrae. A facet joint contains protective cartilage and a capsule of liquid-like material to cushion and support it.

Migraine HeadAches

Migraines

Chronic headaches are very prevalent. Estimates suggest that up to 5% of the global population is affected by this type of pain. For those who suffer from the worst forms of chronic head pain, an optical nerve block can help them relieve their pain and get back to their life.

Sciatica

Sciatica

Sciatica involves pain along the distribution of the sciatic nerve, the largest single nerve in the human body. The nerve begins in the lumbar region of the spine, goes deep and emerges just below the buttocks, and ends just above the posterior knee. Sciatica is not a medical diagnosis, but rather a symptom of underlying disease. The nerve is compressed or irritated in some way, leading to characteristic symptoms.

Herniated Disc

Herniated Discs

The spine is comprised of individual bones called vertebrae, and in between each vertebra, is an intervertebral disc. These discs help to provide stability for the spine, and also act as shock absorbers. An intervertebral disc consists of two layers: an inner, jelly-like layer called the nucleus pulposus and an outer, fibrous layer called the annulus fibrosis. A herniated disc occurs when some of the inner layer of the intervertebral disc ruptures through a weakened point in the outer layer. A herniated disc can irritate nearby spinal nerves, which can result in back pain as well as numbness or weakness in the upper or lower extremities.

Pelvic Pain

Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain is pain that occurs in or around the pelvic bone, which is located at the juncture of the spine and leg bones. This type of pain may arise from the many structures and tissues located in the region of the skeleton. Pelvic pain may be associated with the joints, bones, musculature, or nervous tissue in the area. It may also be related to disorders or damage to the genitals or reproductive systems found within or immediately near the pelvic bone. Therefore, the exact nature of pelvic pain may be difficult to diagnose accurately, and thus to treat effectively.

Phantom Limb Syndrome

Phantom Limb Syndrome

Approximately 1.7 million people have undergone limb amputation in the United States alone, with 60-80% of these amputees experiencing phantom limb pain. This painful and debilitating condition has often been misdiagnosed as psychological; however, more recent theories have suggested a multifactorial origin. Current evidence reveals that phantom limb pain originates from the brain and spinal cord.

Interstitial Cystis – Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain is pain that occurs in or around the pelvic bone, which is located at the juncture of the spine and leg bones.

postherpetic Neuralgia

Postherpetic Neuralgia

Post herpetic neuralgia is a type of neuropathic pain that is caused by complications related to the herpes zoster virus, which is the virus that causes chickenpox in children and shingles in adults. Prevalence rates have estimated that between 10-18% of individuals who have ever developed herpes zoster will experience post herpetic neuralgia.

Cervical-Radiculopathy

Radiculopathy

Cervical radiculopathy refers to damage or irritation of the nerve roots within the cervical or neck area. In general, symptoms associated with cervical radiculopathy are localized to the neck, chest, shoulders, arms, and upper back. Irritation and injury to the nerve roots within the cervical area can result in symptoms of pain and discomfort around the neck and upper extremities, along with motor dysfunction (e.g., muscle weakness) or sensory deficits (e.g., loss of sensation) in these areas. In some instances, individuals report sensations of numbness or tingling within the hands and fingers.
