Regenerative Medicine and Pain Management Physicians can help patients with many conditions including:
Cervical strain, cervical herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, cervical myofascial pain, post-surgical pain, cervical radiculopathy
Includes a multitude of pain issues including Thoracic Subluxation, Spinal Degeneration, Scoliosis, Spinal Stenosis, and Spondylolisthesis.
This is an inflammation occurring in the joints, the movable connectors between bones. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and occurs when the cartilage between the bones breaks down.
Types include Tension headaches, Cluster headaches and Migraines. Often viewed as one of the most painful of headaches, Migraines are often accompanied by a variety of other unpleasant symptoms such as light and sound sensitivity, nausea, and vomiting. They also include Occipital Neuralgia, which has to do with the pinching of nerves.
It can largely be attributed to injury and arthritis. The shoulder is one of the more complicated joints, comprised of three bones: the clavicle, the scapula, and the humerus. Lear more about Bursitis, Glenohumeral Arthritis, Rotator Cuff Tear and more.
Elbow Pain can be attributed to several conditions, including lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow, arthritis and bursitis. Bursae are the fluid filled sacs near joints that add another level of protection. Inflammation or injury can lead to considerable pain.
Wrist and Hand Pain
Wrist and Hand Pain is common and major causes include frequent or severe previous injury to the area (leading to weakness of the joint), deterioration with age, Rheumatoid disease (which causes damage to many different joints), or infection to the joint (which may permanently damage the tissue, since joints or made of non-regenerative cartilage).
The hip is one of the largest joints in the body and is a “ball-and-socket” joint. Pain can be caused by deterioration from age and use, Bursitis, or a Labreal Tear – the ring of cartilage (labrum) that follows the outside rim of the socket of the hip joint.
It can be attributed to Arthritis, Meniscus Tear, ACL/PCL Strains and Sprains. Cartilage injuries may also cause pain – much of the knee is composed of cartilage, a soft tissue meant to act as a cushion between bones in the joint.
Foot and ankle pain
Includes Ankle Arthritis, Tendonitis, Strains and Sprains, and Plantar Fasciitis. Where arthritis is an inflammation of the joint, and tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendon, plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the long band of tissue that stretches from the lower part of the leg, over the heel to the toes.
A type of radiculopathy that travels from the low back through the buttock and down the large sciatic nerve in the back of the leg.
When the cushion (or disc) that sits between the spinal vertebra is pushed outside its normal position it can sit on or pinch a nerve root—causing pain.
A sharp, severe, shooting pain along a nerve or group of nerves caused by irritation or damage. The location of the pain depends on the condition that causes it and the location of the nerve that is irritated.
An infection that results from the reactivation of the same virus that causes chickenpox (the varicella virus). It causes a painful rash of blisters that is isolated in a broad band on one side of the body.
