Common conditions for back pain along with recommended treatment therapies:

Lumbar Degenerative Disc Disease

Lumbar degenerative disc disease is a condition that sometimes causes low back pain or radiating pain from damaged discs in the spine. A lumbar spinal disc acts as a shock absorber between vertebrae and allows the joints in the spine to move easily.

Lumbar Radicular Pain

Commonly referred to as Sciatica, this form of pain radiates from the lower back down through the leg. Lumbar Spinal Stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back, usually happens when bone, tissue, or both, grow in the openings of the spinal bones. This growth can squeeze and irritate nerves that branch out from the spinal cord.

Facet Joint Arthritis

Facet Joint Arthritis is a common cause of back pain and discomfort due to degeneration of this part of the vertebrae. This condition causes pain in the back that does not radiate down the leg(s). Spondylosis, which is an umbrella term, describes symptoms related to degenerative changes in the spine.

Compression Fractures, Trauma, or other Cracked Vertebrae

Compression fractures in your back are small breaks in bones caused by osteoporosis, trauma, or certain types of cancers that often stabilize on their own in about three months. For some patients, the pain is too extreme and additional pain relief is needed. Kyphoplasty is the go to treatment which provides relief for many patients experiencing compression fractures or other spinal fractures.

Treatments for compression fractures or other vertebrae disease include:

Bulging Disc

A bulging disc occurs when a weakened or deteriorated disc swells through a crevice in the spine and extends outside of its normal housing. This condition happens when a disc shifts out of its normal position, usually slowly and over a long period of time. As the disc moves, its inner liquid-like nucleus begins to balloon outward towards the weakest point in its hard outer casing.
