Common Pain Conditions

Arthritis

Arthritis refers to inflammation of a joint and is characterized by pain and stiffness. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis including degenerative osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout.

Back Pain

Mechanical back pain is one of the most common pain conditions in the United States today and a leading reason for all physician visits. More than 80% of Americans suffer from neck or low back pain at some point in their lives.

Cancer Pain

Pain as a result of cancer is a complex symptom that affects nearly all aspects of daily life and includes emotional, psychological, and physical components.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the nerve that runs through the carpal tunnel, called the median nerve, becomes inflamed or compressed. A number of factors can contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome including anatomy of the wrist, repetitive movement of the hands and wrists, and certain underlying health conditions, including pregnancy.

Cervical Radiculopathy

Cervical radiculopathy occurs when a nerve originating in the cervical spine (neck) is irritated or compressed by one of many conditions including injury, arthritis, degenerative spinal disorders or ruptured discs.

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain, by definition, is pain that persists for greater than six months. If not diagnosed and treated properly, chronic pain can lead to severe psychological distress.

Coccydynia

Coccydynia refers to pain in the region of the tailbone, known as the coccyx. There is frequently no direct cause identified although it may be caused by an impact to the bone, prolonged sitting, or childbirth.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), previously referred to as reflex sympathetic dystrophy, causes the nervous system to misfire and send signals to the brain that are interpreted as pain. It can occur anywhere in the body but most commonly affects an arm or leg. CRPS may occur following an injury or surgery but the exact cause is not presently known.

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease is not a disease, rather it is a term used to describe the normal changes that occur in the spinal discs over time. Spinal discs separate the bony vertebrae of the spine. When they degenerate, the spine becomes less supple, losing the ability to twist and bend without restriction and sometimes causes pain.

Facet Joint Syndrome (Spinal Arthritis)

The facet joints are the connections between the bones of the spine. They protect the spinal column and nerves from injury by preventing excess movement. Over the course of our lifetime, these joints frequently wear out or may be damaged from an injury, such as a severe fall.

Fibromyalgia Syndrome

Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) is a common and complex chronic pain syndrome affecting the muscles and bones. The exact cause of this widespread disorder is unknown. Fibromyalgia symptoms tend to vary from person to person. Many individuals experience sore, achy and tired muscles.

Headaches

Headaches are the most common pain complaint in the United States. There are many causes and types of headaches, with the vast majority being non-serious. An MRI may be performed to reassure the patient that there is no serious, underlying cause to their pain.

Herniated Discs

A herniated disc occurs when the spinal discs located between two vertebral bones of the spine become damaged or slip out of place. Discs function as shock absorbers and help maintain flexibility.

Muscle Injuries

Muscle strains and sprains are common injuries that may result from overuse or injury. A muscle strain involves tearing or stretching a muscle or tendon. A sprain involves tearing or stretching a ligament.

Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) is a chronic pain condition affecting the soft connective tissue that encases muscles, called fascia. Single or multiple muscles may be affected.

Neck Pain

Neck pain is a common pain condition that may include restricted movement. Most often neck pain is temporary and resolves on its own without treatment. Occasionally, medical diagnosis and treatment is needed to relieve symptoms that persists and interfere with normal functioning.

Neuropathy

Generally referred to as peripheral neuropathy, this condition occurs when the peripheral nerve fibers of the body are damaged from illness, pressure, trauma, or exposure to toxins such as heavy metals and some cancer chemotherapy agents. The two most common causes of neuropathy in the United States are diabetes and alcohol abuse.

Orofacial Pain

Orofacial pain refers to pain felt within the neck, face, head, ears, jaw, mouth, gums, or teeth. It may be caused by a muscle condition, tempero-mandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, or as a result of a dental procedure such as a root canal, tooth extraction, or periodontal work.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a bone disease caused by a reduction in bone mineral content causing the bones to gradually become weak and brittle. The condition often results in broken bones or fractures — even from simple activities.

Pain and Sex

Intercourse pain, or dyspareunia, is a common pain condition that frequently goes unreported and therefore untreated. Although it occurs more often in women, men may occasionally experience it. Common causes include vaginal inflammation, chronic and persistent yeast infections, and pelvic floor damage after childbirth or surgery.

Pain Management

Pain management is mandatory for those living with chronic pain. The root of the pain may arise from an injury, surgery, illness or other chronic medical condition. The treatment goal is to reduce pain, restore physical function and improve overall emotional and mental health.

Peripheral Neuralgia

Peripheral neuralgia is pain that results from damage to the nerves found outside of the brain and spinal cord, called peripheral nerves. It can be caused by mechanical injury or trauma to the nerves or as a result of an illness or disease.

Phantom Limb Pain

Phantom limb pain is the sensation of pain present after a limb has been amputated. This is caused by the brain’s attempt to reorganize sensory information following the amputation. Essentially, the brain holds a memory of the pain experienced prior to the amputation and the cut nerve endings send signals to the brain initiating the onset of pain.

Post-Herpetic Neuralgia

Post-herpetic neuralgia is a common complication from shingles causing pain that can last for months, and in some cases years, after the shingles is resolved.

Sciatica (Lumbar Radiculopathy)

Sciatica refers to pain that begins in the back and radiates down the leg toward the foot and toes. It can be caused by a variety of mechanisms including degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis occurs when there is an abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal. There are many potential causes of spinal stenosis including aging, arthritis, and trauma.

Spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisthesis is a condition of the back where one spinal vertebra slides forward over the vertebra directly below it. This places pressure on the spinal nerve roots and spinal cord. While this may occur throughout the entire spine, it is most commonly seen in the lumbar region.

Sport Injuries

Sports related injuries are common causes of both acute and chronic pain. If not managed appropriately, an acute sprain or strain may progress to become a chronic problem. Sports injuries typically fall into two categories: repetitive use injury (RUI) and misuse of the muscles or joints, or traumatic injuries from a collision or fall.

Tendonitis

Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon caused by overuse, or improper use, of a joint. Typically tendonitis occurs in the wrist, elbow, knee, shoulder, hip and/or heel and causes pain and swelling around the tendon and joint. Aging and improper technique in certain sport activities are all causes of tendonitis.

Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia is an extremely painful condition characterized by intermittent, shooting pain in the face caused by a disorder of one of the largest cranial nerves, called the trigeminal nerve. Sharp pain to the face, lips, eyes, nose, scalp, forehead and/or jaw may come on without warning or be triggered by normal everyday activities.

Whiplash (CAD Syndrome)

Whiplash, also called cervical acceleration-deceleration (CAD) syndrome, refers to the pain syndrome commonly seen after a person’s head is suddenly forced forward or backward with great force.
