Neurologic pain is general nerve pain, which can be experienced as chronic prickling, burning, a tingling sensation felt all day, or even a stabbing pain in the middle of the night. Orthopedic pain involves the musculoskeletal system. Rheumatic pain affects the joints and connective tissue.
Headache and Migraine
Headaches are caused by inflammation and other problems with the blood vessels surrounding the brain. Migraines are really just exponent headaches, accompanied by symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and noise. They are both caused by several factors, some of which include modern mundane occurrences such as medication withdrawal and too much exposure to light.
Sports injuries come in variant form. Some of the most common include Ankle sprain, Groin pull, Hamstring strain, Shin splints, ACL tear, Patellofemoral syndrome (knees), and tennis elbow.
Cancer pain can be related directly to the tumor, which may be pressing against bone, nerves, or other organs. Pain in particular areas of the body are associated with different types of cancer: lower back with colon or ovarian cancer; shoulder pain with lung cancer; and head with brain tumors (malignant and benign). more info
Sciatica and Herniated discs
Sciatica is caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve, creating pain in the back that spreads to the hip, buttocks, and legs. Herniated discs are onset when the nucleus of the vertebrae pushes around the bone and into the nerve, pinching it.
Neurological conditions affect the brain, spine, and nerves that connect them. Among the most common are brain tumors, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and dementia.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is chronic pain that affects the limbs. It is believed to be caused by damage to the peripheral and central nervous systems. The pain lasts longer than six months, and can be ameliorated but not cured.
Central Pain Syndromes
Central Pain Syndrome is caused by dysfunction of the central nervous system: the brain brain-stem, and spinal cord. It can be onset by strokes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, brain tumors, limb amputations, brain injuries, or spinal cord injuries.
Orthopedic conditions concern the musculoskeletal system. Among the most common are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, cubital and carpal tunnel syndrome, and ligament injuries to the knee.
Arthritis / Joint Pain
Arthritis is incredibly common within older people. It is defined by inflammation in the joints, which worsens with age. The symptoms include joint pain and stiffness. Its most common forms are osteoarthritis and and rheumatoid arthritis.
Muscle pain can be related to many localized conditions. Some include Fibromyalgia, muscle tearing and strain, and dystrophy. It can be caused by numerous activity-related injuries, as well as other conditions such as the Flu.
Foot pain can be onset by injury, overuse, or inflammation, but the most common cause is arthritis. Nerve pain in the foot can result in burning pain, numbness, or tingling. An excessive amount of walking via commuting is another common cause of foot pain.
Neck and Back Pain
The most common causes of neck and back pain overuse, strenuous activity, or improper use, such as repetitive or heavy lifting. The most common forms are trauma, injury, or fractures, but there can also be nerve-related, orthopedic, or rheumatic pain.
Pelvic pain can be caused by a problem with the organs in the lower-abdominal area. Common causes are constipation, pregnancy, full bladder, sexual pain, menstruation, or trauma. More serious causes are prostatitis, pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, and ovarian torsion.
Stomach pain is muscular pain in the abdominal area and its outer muscle wall. More common causes are constipation, gas, overeating, stress, or muscle strain. More serious causes include stomach flu, ovulation pain, appendicitis, and gastritis.
Temporomandibular joints Disorders affect the hinge-like joints that connect your lower and upper jaws. Common symptoms include facial pain, jaw locking, pain around the ears, and pain when chewing.
Hypermobility occurs on a spectrum and involves ligaments which are intrinsically too stretchy to maintain optimal biomechanical function of the joints they support. Even the best known hypermobility condition, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, occurs on a spectrum. It's important to know that hypermobility is common, and it is treated the same regardless of genetic diagnosis. We offer regenerative medicine techniques such as targeted prolotherapy and platelet rich plasma (PRP) to improve ligament function. We also treat and help manage associated conditions such as craniocervical instability, headache, and POTS.
