Slipped disks

The term "slipped disk" actually refers to a condition in the spine whereby portions of an abnormal, injured, or degenerated disk have protruded against adjacent nerve tissues. This is also known as a herniated disk, ruptured disk, or prolapsed disk.

Spinal canal stenosis

Spinal stenosis is an abnormal narrowing (stenosis) of the spinal canal that may occur in any of the regions of the spine. This narrowing causes a restriction to the spinal cord, resulting in a neurological deficit. Symptoms include pain, numbness, paresthesia and loss of motor control. The two types of this condition are lumbar stenosis and cervical stenosis.

Spine scoliosis

Scoliosis is not a disease, but rather it is a term used to describe any abnormal, sideways curvature of the spine. People are usually born with this condition, but it can progressively get worse, interrupting a person's quality of life with back pain and discomfort.

Arthritis of the lower back

Arthritis of the lower back, or lumbar spine, is a problem that occurs in the joints that connect each spinal segment, or vertebrae. This condition is especially common in individuals who are older, overweight, or those with a history of back injuries.

Rotator cuff injury

The rotator cuff is made up of muscle and tendons in the shoulder, and is responsible for creating the shoulder's high range of motion. A rotator cuff injury includes any type of irritation or damage to your rotator cuff muscles or tendons.

Frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder is when the shoulder is painful and loses motion because of inflammation. There is no cause for a frozen shoulder, but symptoms include decreased motion of the shoulder, pain, and stiffness. It is recommended that you see a doctor immediately.

Carpal tunnel syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is pressure on the median nerve, which provides feeling and movement to parts of the hand. Thus, symptoms are numbness, tingling, weakness, or pain in the muscles of the hand. This syndrome is caused due to a repetitive hand motion, such as typing, playing a musical instrument, sports, driving, etc.

Repetitive strain I

Repetitive strain injury (RSI) an injury of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems that may be caused by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions, vibrations, mechanical compression (pressing against hard surfaces), sustained, or awkward positions.

Injury to wrist

The wrist is made up of the two bones of the forearm (the radius and ulna) and eight carpal bones. An injury to the wrist can either result in a sprain, cracked/brocken bone.or carpal tunnel syndrome.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)

TMJ disorder covers acute or chronic pain, especially in the muscles of mastication and/or inflammation of the temporomandibular joint, which connects the mandible to the skull. The disorder and resultant dysfunction can result in jaw, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as headaches and earaches.

Plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot. This tissue is called the plantar fascia. It connects the heel bone to the toes and creates the arch of the foot.
