Setauket Functional Rehabilitation For Back Pain
Prolonged or chronic back pain doesn’t discriminate; it doesn’t care if you’re sitting, standing or laying down.
Not only does untreated back, neck or spine pain interfere with your day-to-day life, but it also inhibits your body’s natural ability to heal. This can lead to other ailments and conditions like headaches, migraines or worse.
Chronic pain in the back, neck or spine are often the result of these common ailments:
- Compression fracture
Occurs when one or more bones in the spine weaken or collapse.
- Degenerative disc disease
Osteoarthritis of the spine, usually in the neck or lower back.
- Facet joint dysfunction
Arthritis-like condition of the spine.
- Herniated disc
Occurs when the soft center of a spinal disc pushes through a crack in the tougher exterior casing. This is the most common cause of back and leg pain.
Protective tissue at the ends of bones (cartilage) begins to wear down, often leading to joint pain.
- Piriformis syndrome
Occurs when the small muscle located deep in the buttock compresses the sciatic nerve.
Pain that radiates from the sciatic nerve and down one or both legs from the lower back.
- Spinal stenosis
Occurs when the small spinal canal, which contains the nerve roots and spinal cord, becomes compressed.
A result of slipping vertebra that occurs, in most cases, at the base of the spine.
Certain types of physical injury including brain injury, spinal cord injury and spine fractures.
