Spinal Disc 101

Spondylolisthesis TX

What is Spondylolisthesis?

Spondylolisthesis is a hard word to spell, and it’s hard to see why this condition of the spine could happen. The term is a condition where one of the bones of the spine is displaced. When the vertebra slips out of its normal location onto the bone beneath it, the odds are it will compress […]


Osteoarthritis

Protecting Your Back

Everyone always assumes they were the cause of their back pain. That can be true — yesterday you helped a friend move out an old refrigerator — but back injuries can also simply occur from normal behaviors such as bending over to tie your shoe. Certainly, there are some higher risk movements for your back. […]


Microdiscectomy

Lower back pain can be due to muscle strains. In those cases, rest will usually eventually eliminate the pain and get you back to full function. But other times, the pain is due to a nerve being compressed or otherwise pushed upon as it’s leaving the area of the spinal cord. In these cases, the […]
