Spinal Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease where the body attacks its healthy cells and tissues. In disorder, the membranes around the joints become inflamed and release enzymes that cause the surrounding cartilage and bone to wear away. It’s estimated that around 2.1 million Americans have rheumatoid arthritis. It occurs in all racial and ethnic groups […]


Dealing with Degenerative Disc Disease

The discs of our spine are finicky. As we age, they tend to bulge and sometimes herniate, causing back pain. This impacts the lives of millions of Americans. 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 […]

Whip that Whiplash with the DFW Team

Sometimes people think a person has suffered whiplash when they actually have not. The easy way to picture the condition is to picture its namesake, the whip. The movement right before a whip snaps is the thing to visualize. That rapid swaying of your neck backward and then forward or vice versa is the movement […]


The Pain in the Butt that is Sciatica

OK, so you’re stuck in traffic on the 30 and suddenly your leg on the accelerator starts burning and is painful. Or your butt has the same. You may even have shooting pain down one or both legs. Not the best solution for rush hour irritation. Sounds like you may be having a bout of […]


Another Fact of Aging — Spinal Stenosis

With the passing years may come wisdom, but it also brings some degenerative issues, even with your spine. Degenerative changes in the spine — a collapsed disc, bone spurs, or cysts — can cause the spinal canal to narrow.
