Disc Herniation

Disc herniation

A herniated (slipped) disk occurs when all or part of a disk is forced through a weakened part of the disk. This may place pressure on nearby nerves or the spinal cord. Causes: The bones (vertebrae) of the spinal column protect nerves that come out of the brain and travel down your back to form the spinal cord. Nerve roots are large nerves that branch out from the spinal cord and leave your spinal column between each vertebra. The spinal bones are separated by disks. These disks cushion the spinal column and put space between your vertebrae. The disks allow movement between the vertebrae, which lets you bend and reach. With herniated disk: The disk may move out of place (herniate) or break open (rupture) from injury or strain. When this...

Frozen Shoulder

Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, causes pain and stiffness in the shoulder. Over time, the shoulder becomes very hard to move. After a period of worsening symptoms, frozen shoulder tends to get better, although full recovery may take up to 3 years. Physical therapy, with a focus on shoulder flexibility, is the primary treatment recommendation for frozen shoulder. Frozen shoulder most commonly affects people between the ages of 40 and 60, and occurs in women more often than men. In addition, people with diabetes are at an increased risk for developing frozen shoulder.  Anatomy: Your shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint made up of three bones: your upper arm bone (humerus), your shoulder blade (scapula), and your collarbone (clavicle). The head of the upper arm bone fits into a shallow...

Chronic low back pain

Smoking and chronic low-back pain

Low back pain has become a global health issue which affects 50% to 80% of people at some time in their life. Low back pain leads to decreased productivity with activities of daily living, reduction in quality of life, and high health care cost. The evidence on the role and mechanism of smoking in relation to low back pain is inconsistent. However, 27 cross-sectional studies have suggested that current smokers as well as those who used to smoke in the past are at greater risk of developing chronic low-back pain when compared to individuals who never smoked. Some studies have shown that smoking is associated with osteoporosis, lumbar disc disorder, and reduced bone healing which subsequently result in chronic pain. Smokers appeared to have more...

Scapular Dyskinesia

Scapular Dykinesis is the alterations in the motion, position and kinematics of the scapula which is found to be associated with frequent shoulder injuries. The kinematic signs include increased superior translation of the scapula, decreased posterior scapular tilt, decreased scapular upward rotation, decreased internal rotation in loaded positions, disproportional glenohumeral-scapulothoracic ratios and abnormal changes in scapular motion with resistance or fatigue. Cumulative stresses over time can put extreme stress on shoulder joint complex. Different contributors to scapular dyskinesia include resting posture with excessive thoracic kyphosis and cervical lordosis, clavicle fractures, injuries of acromioclavicular joint, as well as arthrosis. Other factors such as subacromial impingement, internal impingement, instability, and SLAP lesions are associated with scapular dyskinesia. Altered activation and coordination of scapula stabilizing muscles, inflexibility and contractures...

Plantar fasciitis; symptoms, diagnosis and treatment

Plantar fascia is a layer of dense fibrous tissue that runs along the length of the bottom of the foot to strengthen and support the foot arch. It extends from the calcaneus bone to the proximal phalanges. Plantar fascia consists of a thicker central portion and relatively thinner lateral and medial regions. Plantar fasciitis is a condition when this fibrous band gets irritated or strained. The symptoms include: * Pain in the heel region or arch of the foot * Pain is worse when the person first stands up and walks (usually in the mornings) or after a long period of walking and running *Pain is usually sharp at the beginning but reduces in severity and becomes duller after a period of light activity *Pain worsened with by passive dorsiflexion...

occipital pain,

Occipital neuralgia

Occipital neuralgia is in many cases associated and confused with Cervicogenic, Tension and Migraine headaches due to the common symptom of occipital pain that all of them exhibit. Occipital neuralgia is a type of headache that can be characterized by throbbing, electric shock pain in the cranial or upper cervical spine. Neuralgia could typically present as spontaneous attack of pain triggered by things such as touching the face, chewing, speaking, and brushing the teeth. Most common cranial neuralgias may occur in periorbital and auricular regions. This can be also triggered by inflammatory or infectious neurologic disease. Occipital neuralgia (ON) is related to a pathology to cervical rather than cranial nerves. The pain character is sharp, shooting pain in the distribution of the occipital nerves. The sensation...

Knee Pain

Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS)

Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is referred to as ‘Chondromalacia patella’ or ’anterior knee pain syndrome’ or ’patellar dysfunction. PFPS is characterized by retropatellar and peripatellar pain that usually refers to the anterior aspect of the knee. It is more common in adolescents and is caused by abnormal motion of patella on underlying trochlear groove with activities such as squatting, running, stair climbing and descending. It is suggested that PFPS can result from overuse due to muscular imbalance between hamstring, quadriceps, tensor fascia latae (TFL), gluteus medius, vastus medialis and vastus lateralis. PFPS can also be caused by misalignment within the sulculs of the femur leading to oblique lateral tracking, or lateral and medial ligamentous imbalances eventually resulting in excessive lateral pressure in the patellofemoral articulation. Direct...

Idiopathic Scoliosis Management and Treatment

The word scoliosis is a Greek word meaning crooked. About 3/100 of individuals have some form of scoliosis. For a small percentage of people curve gets worse as they grove. Scoliosis isclassified into different groups which idiopathic scoliosis (IS) is the most common one. Genetic predisposition, mesenchymal disorders, metabolic causes, functional (muscle imbalances) are some of the potential causes for scoliosis to happen. X-ray is the modality of choice for evaluation of congenital anomalies such as hemivertebra, wedged bodies, possible osteoarthrosis. The curve can be measured by Cobb’s method. types of scoliosis medical anatomical vector illustration diagram with spine curvatures compared with healthy back bone. back view female with labels.

Discogenic Low Back Pain

The lifetime prevalence of all people low back is estimated to be 60-85% and it is the most or second most common reason for disability among young and middle aged people. Having said that, 90-95% of patients with low back pain recover spontaneously within 3 months but 5-10% may develop chronic low back pain. Sensitization of the nociceptors from different inflammatory markers may lead to chronic discogenic pain. Approximately, 40% of chronic low back pain is attributed to the discus intervertebralis which means pain is coming from the disc between the vertebral bodies. The intervertebral disc is composed of a gelatinous nucleus pulposus which contains collagen type II fibers, hyaluronic acid, and proteoglycans in the center which is surrounded by the annulus fibrosis. Nucleus pulposus...
