Normally, this is directly caused by the cervical spine. If your neck pain involves nerve compression, you may feel numbness, tingling, or weakness in your arm, hand, or another area.
All joints may present deterioration at some point, leading to moderate pain. Knees are typically the most affected.
The sciatic nerve descends from the lumbar spine, spanning the gluteal, genital, and leg regions, and in severe cases, even reaching the feet. This pain is called sciatica and is produced by nerve compression in the disks of the lumbar spine. Sciatica can impede normal walking in patients, due to the intense pain.
This is a type of dystonia (prolonged muscle contractions) in which the neck muscles—particularly the sternocleidomastoid muscle—contract involuntarily and cause the head to bow, which impedes normal neck movement.
This is an inflammation of one or both sacroiliac joints, where the lumbar spine and pelvis connect. It may cause pain in the buttocks or lower back, and may even extend to one or both legs. The associated pain is often aggravated by standing for long periods or climbing stairs.
This is discomfort in any of the structures of the neck, including muscles, nerves, bones (vertebrae), and intervertebral discs. When your neck hurts, you may have difficulty moving it, especially turning it to the side. Many describe this as having a stiff neck.
Depending on the location of your lumbar pain, your legs may feel numb, hot, or irritated, which impedes fully normal movement.
These are injuries which occur when playing a sport or during physical exercise. These may occur accidentally. They may also be the result of poor training practices or improper use of training gear.
This occurs when all or part of a cervical disk is forced to pass through a weakened part of the disk. This may cause pressure on nearby nerves or on the spinal cord. This pressure produces problems in the neck and lowers quality of life.
Shoulder blades serve as cavities and insertion points for numerous arm, neck, and chest muscles and tendons. Shoulder blade pain is a sign of a variety of pathologies, generally of functional origin.
Isthmic spondylolisthesis is characterized by the presence of various symptoms and signs, including lumbar or leg pain.
The characteristic symptom of this condition is leg pain when walking (pseudoclaudication), which may significantly decrease patient activity levels.
The spinal column may present herniated disks. These generate nerve pressure, which in turn causes localized numbness in affected areas. If the hernias are in the cervical region (neck), the pain radiates to the hands, but if it is in the lumbar region (lower back), it radiates to the legs.
Disk degeneration is a common problem as people age. Over time, the soft, compressible disks, which serve as shock absorbers for the back, deteriorate. Research shows that the reimplantation of nucleus pulposus cells, or even stem cells, into the damaged disk may delay disk degeneration.
Lower back pain or lumbago is often caused by lifting excessive weight. It is always useful to determine the cause of this pain, in order to create an individualized treatment plan that helps to regain your quality of life.
The carpal tunnel is a narrow stretch of ligaments and bones at the base of the hand containing nerves and tendons. Occasionally, the thickening of irritated tendons or other swollen structures narrows the tunnel and causes nerve compression. The symptoms tend to present gradually. As they worsen, holding objects may become difficult.
This occurs due to the appearance of a small bone spur at the heel. The most common cause for this is age. The patient mainly reports sharp pain, which is more intense in the mornings, especially when they put weight on their heel for the first time. The pain is localized in a specific area of the heel, which is easy to identify.
Plantar fasciitis occurs when the thick band of tissue in the sole of the foot is stretched or overloaded. This may be painful and can complicate walking.
