Neck Pain

Neck muscles can be strained from poor posture, whether it's leaning over your computer or hunching over your workbench.

Whiplash

An injury caused by a severe jerk to the head, typically in a car accident.

Neck Arthritis

The symptoms of neck arthritis include chronic pain, muscle weakness, numbness, stiffness, headaches and loss of balance.

Cervicogenic Headache

TMJ

Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD, TMJ, TMJD) is an umbrella term covering pain and dysfunction of the muscles of mastication.

Muscle Tension

Refers to the condition in which muscles of the body remain semi-contracted for an extended period and is typically caused by the physiological effects of stress.

Numbness

A loss of sensation or feeling in a part of your body.

Bulging Disc

A bulging disc is a condition in which the nucleus (inner portion) of a spinal disc remains contained within the annulus fibrosus (outer portion), unlike a herniated disc in which the nucleus leaks out of the disc.

Facet Joint Sprain

Pain caused by a facet joint injury. Facet joints are synovial joints between the vertebrae of your spine.

Trapped Nerve

Commonly called a "pinched nerve" occurs when a nerve in the neck is compressed or irritated where it branches away from the spinal cord.

back pain cork

Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work and a leading cause of disability worldwide. Episodes of back pain may be acute, sub-acute, or chronic.

Disc Problems

Terminology about spinal disc pathology can be confusing: there are many terms used to describe it, such as "Herniated Disc", "Pinched Nerve", "Bulging Disc", "Slipped Disc" and "Ruptured Disc". All can be used differently and interchangeably. In most cases the cause of the pain is a condition in which the nucleus (inner portion) of a spinal disc remains contained within the annulus fibrosus, its outer portion.

Sciatica

Pain affecting the back, hip, and outer side of the leg, caused by compression of a spinal nerve root in the lower back, often owing to degeneration of an intervertebral disc.

Postural Dysfunction

Postural dysfunction or “poor” posture is defined as when our spine is positioned in unnatural positions, in which the curves are emphasised and this results in the joints, muscles and vertebrae being in stressful positions.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that occurs most often during the growth spurt just before puberty. While scoliosis can be caused by conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause of most scoliosis is unknown.

Muscle Spasm

Muscle spasm is an involuntary contraction of a muscle that can cause a great deal of pain. When the facet joints of the spine become injured or inflamed, the muscles supporting the spine can spasm causing low back pain and limitation in motion.

Nerve Compression

Nerve compression syndrome or compression neuropathy is a medical condition caused by direct pressure on a single nerve. It is known colloquially as a "trapped nerve".

Wear & Tear

Several diseases of the joints can be caused by wear and tear of the joint cartilage.

Facet Joint Sprain

Pain caused by a facet joint injury. Facet joints are synovial joints between the vertebrae of your spine.

Spinal Cord Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of spaces in the spine (backbone) which causes pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. About 75% of cases of spinal stenosis occur in the low back.

Heel Pain

A common condition in which weight bearing on the heel causes extreme discomfort. It can interfere with your normal activities, particularly exercise.
