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.

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.

In fact, up to 80 percent of the U.S. population over age 55 is thought to have bulging spinal discs to some degree. These changes in the […]


The Pain that is a Pinched Nerve

Your nerves make up a network that extends from your brain and spinal cord. Their messages indicate sensations such as pain so that you cease the behavior or look to address the causes of the pain. When a nerve is compressed, you can think of it as being “pinched, holding” and your body sends out […]


Cervical Radiculopathy

You never want to go around compressing one of your nerves. This goes for cases from carpal tunnel syndrome to stenosis.

We address the causes of radiculopathy at DFW Center for Spinal […]
