BACK & NECK PAIN

There are numerous causes of back and neck pain.

Careful diagnostic evaluations and pathology specific

treatments are required to correctly identify and treat

specific spinal pain problems. Surgery does not cure

all neck, back and sciatica problems. It takes careful

evaluations and examinations to locate and successfully

resolve back pain problems.

HERNIATED &

INJURED DISCS

The discs in our spine can become injured as a result of ageing, 

accidents, repetitive stress, lifting and twisting events.

Disc herniations often cause pain radiating into the limbs.

Discs have an outer series of rings that wrap around the core or nucleus.

The outer ring fibres are called the annulus fibrosus. The inner nucleus

pulposus is a gelatinous substance that is firmly held in place

by the outer annulus.

 
 

SPINAL STENOSIS

 

Spinal Stenosis is a condition resulting from compression of nerves 

in the spine. Spinal Stenosis can occur in the neck, causing

generalised pain, numbness, tingling, weakness and pain

in one or both arms. It also can occur in the low back causing

numbness, generalised pain, tingling, weakness and pain in one

or both legs. The symptoms follow the path of the nerve or nerves that

are compressed. The path of the symptoms assists the physicians in

determining which nerves are involved.

FACET JOINT INJURY

Often pain experienced from the spine in the neck, mid or

low back arises from the facet joints. These are small joints

that move when the spine moves and help to hold the spine

together. They are true joints, like the knee joints or finger

joints. With repeated stress, trauma, accidents or because of

the changes that occur with age and arthritis, these joints can

cause pain in the upper, middle and lower parts of the spine.

 
 

SACROILIAC JOINT PAIN

The Sacroiliac Joint has received considerable attention in

the last twenty years as a major source of back pain.

80% of single-side low back and buttock pain is related t

o the sacroiliac joint, and that at least 30% of across the

back – low back pain is caused by the sacroiliac joints.

There is a left and right sacroiliac joint, where the spine

attaches to the back of the pelvis. Much progress has been

made in understanding the function and pathophysiology of

this joint and its contribution to back pain. Several new

procedures such as ligament rejuvenation can offer the majority

of sacroiliac sufferers good pain relief without the need for surgery.

SCOLIOSIS

Scoliosis is where the spine twists and curves to the side.

It can affect people of any age, from babies to adults, but most 

often starts in children aged 10 to 15.

Scoliosis doesn't normally improve without treatment, but it isn't 

usually a sign of anything serious and treatment isn't always

needed if it's mild.
