Spine Conditions We Treat
At High Mountain Orthopedics, we treat a wide range of conditions to help you maintain a healthy, energetic life. These include the following:
If you are struggling with persistent pain that limits your ability to function normally, we can help. Chronic pain like this can come from any number of different conditions. One of our specialists can diagnose the specific cause and form an effective pain management plan.
Degenerative Disc Disease
This condition involves the slow degradation of your spinal discs as you age. These changes are expected, but that doesn’t make them comfortable. Meet with a doctor to discuss ways to relieve pain related to degenerative disc disease.
When the rubbery cushions between vertebrae, or discs, are damaged, they can put pressure on surrounding nerves. While herniated discs can go unnoticed, they can also cause uncomfortable symptoms including pain, numbness, and weakness, but treatment can help.
Cervical and Lumbar Radiculopathy
Along the length of your spinal cord, nerves branch off to support various parts of your body. Radiculopathy occurs when one of these nerves is compressed or damaged, leading to pain, numbness, and tingling. Effective treatments are available.
Sciatica is the name for pain along your sciatic nerve, radiating from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down the leg. It can have any number of causes, and High Mountain Orthopedics will work with you to identify the source so you can feel better.
Arthritis is acute inflammation, often caused by infection, crystal deposits, or injury. While it is most common in limb joints, it can also affect the joints between vertebrae. This results in pain and stiffness in your back that will worsen over time unless treated.
When a condition affects the neurons of your spinal cord, it is referred to as myelopathy. This may be due to trauma or inflammation and is just as serious as a bone or tissue disorder. Our specialists are experts in this condition, and we’re standing by to help you find relief.
A disc bulge occurs when the padding between vertebrae, or disc, bulges outside the space it occupies. Though there is no rupture, a bulge can still be painful if it is allowed to worsen without receiving physical therapy or medical aid.
Your spinal cord runs through a channel within the vertebrae. If this channel grows too narrow, spinal stenosis is the result. The cord of nerves is put under pressure that causes erratic bouts of pain that are only relieved by rest or leaning forward – unless you receive treatment.
If your job requires repetitive bending or lifting, you’re at risk of developing a condition in which a nerve extension becomes compressed. The damage can range from minor to severe and may result in long-term problems, but proper treatment can provide relief.
