Superior Spine Care will diagnose and treat many different spinal disorders that cause musculoskeletal or nerve pain. Below is just a partial list of the conditions we can treat.
The neck’s susceptibility to injury is due in part to biomechanics. Activities and events that affect cervical biomechanics include extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls and blows to the body or head, normal aging, and everyday wear and tear. Neck pain can be very bothersome, and it can have a variety of causes.
Back pain can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain that makes it hard to move. It can start quickly if you fall or lift something too heavy, or it can get worse slowly.
Problems with the discs of the back are common. Intervertebral discs are the spongy cushions found between the bones of the spine, part of which can change position and touch nerves, causing pain. This can be caused by trauma as well as long term wear and tear.
Automobile Accidents & Whiplash
Auto accident injuries are one of the leading causes of spinal and whiplash injuries. These types of injuries must be treated properly, or could lead to long term, chronic pain.
Worker's Compensation Injuries
As providers registered with the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC), we treat both major and minor work-related injuries to help get an injured employee back to what’s important in their life as quickly as possible.
Rotator Cuff/Shoulder Injuries
The shoulder joint is the most frequently used joint in the body because it moves every time you move your arm. It also has the widest range of motion of any other joint in your body. This combination of frequent motion and wide range of movement possibilities makes it one of the most vulnerable joints in the body.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a hand and arm condition characterized by tingling, numbness and pain due to the median nerve being compressed in the wrist and is usually linked to repetitive motions.
TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder)
Typical symptoms of this chronic disorder of the face and jaw include discomfort or pain around the jaw and in the face, swelling, problems chewing or talking, the inability to move the jaw, loud popping, headaches and earaches, dizziness and hearing impairment.
Knee pain can be a result of injury or disease of the knee joint. Injury can affect any of the ligaments, bursae, or tendons surrounding the knee joint. Injury can also affect the ligaments, cartilage, meniscus, and bones within the joint.
Ankle injuries are often caused by rolling the ankle while running or changing direction. When they become chronic, the ankle joint loses motion, causing altered mechanics in the knee, hip or even lower back and pelvis.
The hip joint is designed to withstand repeated motion and a fair amount of wear and tear.
