Spine Conditions Treated at The Advanced Spine Center
If you experience back pain for any amount of time, you know just how debilitating it can be. If your back hurts, then it makes everything hard and painful to do making life unenjoyable. The spine is the basis of the whole body and is what keeps us up and moving, but it is also incredibly fragile and there is so much that can easily happen to damage your spine. Below is a list of the spine conditions you may live with that can be treated at the Advanced Spine Center in Plano TX.
Cervical radiculopathy is a condition where the nerve roots in the cervical spine get compressed due to things like a herniated disk happening or rupturing. It can cause tingling, weakness, and pain all the way through the shoulders, arms, hands, and fingers. Contact the Advanced Spine Center for more information about cervical radiculopathy treatment in Plano.
Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative disc disease is one of the spine conditions that cause the vertebral discs to weaken and no longer act as a cushion between each vertebra. It usually starts to happen when the disc wall has a small tear that heals and creates scar tissue that is weaker than it was before torn, and it gets weaker if/when you tear the wall over and over again. You may have this condition if you have pain, numbness, and even tingling in your legs with the pain getting more severe when you bend, twist, or sit as those movements put more pressure on the spine. Contact the Advanced Spine Center for more information about degenerative disc disease treatment in Plano.
If you have this condition, then that means your facet joints, which are there to help stabilize your spine, start to deteriorate. It can happen due to the everyday stress that our backs endure and it can cause pain in the neck, upper shoulders, upper back, middle back, headaches, lower back, and buttocks area. Contact the Advanced Spine Center for more information about facet joint syndrome treatment in Plano.
