Low Back Pain
The lower back includes the lumbar spine, joints, ligaments, nerves and muscles. All of these components work together to provide stability and strength, but they can also be susceptible to soreness, injury and pain.
IT Band Syndrome
The Illiotibial Tract or “IT Band” is a large tendon that travels from the outside of the hip to the outside of the knee. IT Band Syndrome is when this tendon becomes irritated and inflamed, often due to repetitive overuse and suboptimal biomechanics. Clicking and pain in the outside of the knee are common symptoms seen with IT Band Syndrome.
The shoulder joint has a very large range of motion and is the most mobile joint in the body. Injury and soreness in this area can be especially troublesome because of the versatility of this joint and its role in everyday life. Pain in the shoulder can be caused by damage to the rotator cuff, bursitis, pinched nerves and more. Our clinicians are ready to pinpoint the cause of your pain and treat it.
Scoliosis is characterized by a sideways curvature of the spine, usually described as an “S” or a “C” curve. It can cause many symptoms, such as low back and neck pain, stiffness, and more. It is typically diagnosed in childhood or adolescence, but may also be diagnosed in adulthood. Scoliosis can be structural or functional. Structural Scoliosis is often genetic, resulting from abnormal shape of the vertebrae. Functional Scoliosis is due to muscular imbalances and biomechanics. Our job is to discern the difference between the two, and provide you with a treatment plan that will help minimize and manage your symptoms.
The neck or cervical portion of the spine is very important in supporting the head, providing flexibility and protecting nerves. Neck Pain can be caused by many different things, and can also result in pain throughout the shoulders arms and hands.
Sciatica is nerve pain that may originate from the low back and travel down the leg. This condition can affect either one side or both sides of the body, and even cause numbness or tingling in the back of the leg. It is typically caused by compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve.
The Plantar Fascia is a large, flat tendon-like sheet on the bottom of our foot. It helps to absorb forces when standing, walking and running. Consequently, these actions can irritate and damage the plantar fascia, and the pain can be quite severe in some cases. We provide simple, effective treatment for those coping with plantar fasciitis. Not only will we get you relief – we will help resolve your symptoms for good!
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
The Thoracic Outlets are openings that nerves and blood vessels pass through on their way into the upper extremities. There are several regions where these blood vessels and nerves can become restricted and entrapped, resulting in numbness, tingling and weakness in the arms. We see Thoracic Outlet Syndrome every day in our office, and can provide safe, effective treatment to manage and resolve these symptoms.
Intervertebral Discs are cartilaginous discs filled with a jelly-like substance. They provide shock absorption and resistance to compression for our entire spine. Traumatic and overuse injuries can damage discs in a variety of ways. Disc Herniations are protrusions of disc material. This may press on the spinal cord or nerves as they exit the spine. Severe disc herniations can result in extremity weakness, radiating pain and sometimes even loss of urinary and bowel control. If you suspect a disc injury, please call us right away; we are experts in the assessment and conservative management of disc injuries.
Athletes and non-athletes alike commonly suffer from knee pain. This can be due to traumatic injuries or overuse injuries. We assess all structures of the knee to determine the cause of your symptoms. We have diagnosed everything from ACL and Meniscal Tears to Dislocated Patellas. Our clinicians are well-versed in the diagnosis and treatment of knee injuries.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Many people struggle with wrist pain due to their profession or activities of daily living. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a specific type of wrist pain, resulting from the entrapment of the Median Nerve as it passes through a bony tunnel in your wrist.
Whiplash is a common injury sustained in Motor Vehicle Accidents and Sports. The head violently moves the cervical spine (your neck) in any number of directions depending on the forces acting upon your body. This can cause ligamentous, disc, vascular and muscular injury to the neck and the surrounding structures.
