Acute and Chronic Back pain

Back pain is possibly the most common condition that patients seek help for and it can vary significantly from patient to patient. From an intermittent mildly aching back to acute sharp pains, back pain presents in many different ways and can affect all ages

2
Sciatica (pinched nerve in the spine)

Sciatica (pinched nerve in the spine)

The sciatic nerve is a large nerve which runs down the back of each leg. Sciatic nerve pain is leg pain due to medical conditions usually seen in the back. These cause pain, weakness or tingling, which travels through the sciatic nerve and down from the lower back through the legs.

3
neck paint

Neck Pain

The neck is formed by the top portion of the spine and is more accurately and clinically known as the cervical spine. It is constructed to be strong and stable to support our heads whilst also forming the channel for nerve communication from the brain. It can often be a source of pain though.

4
Whiplash injury pain

Whiplash injury pain

Whiplash injury is a controversial diagnosis that refers to the ‘Whiplash’ type of motion that the neck or cervical spine can undergo typically during a car accident. People with whiplash injury may experience pain in the spine and/or headache in some cases.

5
Coccydynia (pain and sensitivity of the tailbone)

Coccydynia

Inflammation, pain and/or sensitivity of the tailbone (or coccyx) is known as coccydynia. The coccyx is at the very base of the spine and may be injured by falling backwards onto the floor and landing in a seated position. Other causes include childbirth and poor posture.

6
Spinal Disc Herniation (slipped disc)

Spinal Disc Herniation (slipped disc)

Spinal disc herniation refers to bulging, slipping and/or tearing of the spinal intervertebral disc. The intervertebral disc consists of a tough outer layer called the annulus fibrosus and the softer gel-like centre called the nucleus pulposus.

7
Spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisthesis (misalignment of the vertebrae)

Under normal conditions the bones or vertebra of the spine are all in alignment. However, the vertebra can slip forwards or backwards out of alignment. This may be due to age-related severe arthritic wear and tear of the spine

8
Brachalgia (arm pain)

Brachalgia (arm pain)

The brachial plexus is made up of several major nerves bundled together in the neck and shoulder, which then branches off and runs all the way down the arm. Brachalgianerve pain is arm pain typically due to compression or irritation in the neck

9
Sacroiliitis(Sacroiliac joint pain)

Sacroiliitis (Sacroiliac joint pain)

Sacroiliitis is pain and inflammation associated with the Sacroiliac joint, which is the major joint connecting the spine to the pelvis. It is a relatively common cause of low back and buttock pain that may be aggravated by walking, running and sitting for long periods.

10
Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis worldwide. It may be caused by wear and tear of the affected joint and tends to gradually worsen over time. Although everyone will experience a degree wear and tear of the joints with age

11
Piriformis syndrome

Piriformis syndrome

Piriformis syndrome is caused by spasm of the piriformis muscle, which compresses or irritates the sciatic nerve. The piriformis muscle runs through each buttock diagonally and is important for rotation of the hips and maintaining stability during walking.

12
Chemotherapy Pain

Painful chemotherapy neuropathy

Chemotherapy is most commonly associated with a form of cancer treatment using drugs which treats the whole body. Patients undergoing chemotherapy can sometimes experience pain which is caused not by the cancer they are being treated for, but by the chemotherapy treatment itself.

13
Joint Pain

Joint Pain

Pain can affect any joint in the body, bus it is particularly common in the shoulders, hips, ankles and knees. Joints provide the connectivity between bones, supporting the body and enabling mobility. Damage to the joints from illness or injury can impact movement and cause pain

14
Sports Injuries

Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are often one of the most common causes of everyday aches and pains and very easily sustained. Most sports injuries are easily avoidable and due to over doing certain activities, failure to warm up or cool down sufficiently or using equipment incorrectly

15
Migraines/Occipital Neuralgia

Migraines/Occipital Neuralgia

It is thought that 1 in 5 women and 1 in 15 men are affected by migraines. Migraines are severe headaches often associated with nausea, vomiting, blurred vision and a sensitivity to light and/or sound.

16
Facet joint syndrome

Facet joint syndrome

The facet joints are small stabilizing joints at the back of the spine and when they are inflamed or arthritic can cause pain in the back or the neck respectively. Facet joint syndrome is one of the more common causes of back and neck pain that often go untreated.

17
spinal conditions in athletes

Spinal conditions in athletes

Back and neck pain are very common within the general population, but athletes are at an even greater risk of developing both acute and long-term spinal problems due to the extra strain that their spine is put through. Non-contact sports such as running, golf and tennis can significant additional stress on the spine, whereas contact sports such as football and rugby are even worse due to the greater risk of injuries as well as ongoing wear and tear.
