  • Spondylolisthesis: when a vertebra, most often at the base of the spine, slips back, forwards, or over a bone below, it can cause a defect or fracture.

  • Sciatica: the sciatic nerve runs own the back of each leg. When pressure or an injury happens to it, it can lead to pain that spreads to hip, buttocks, and leg.
  • Scoliosis: often occurring during a growth spurt before puberty, scoliosis is the sideways curvature of the spine.
  • Back and neck pain: on-going back and neck pain can be a mild to severe ache. Causes can be difficult to determine, but the symptoms can create limitations.
  • Spinal stenosis: most often in the lower back and spine, spinal stenosis puts pressure on the nerves that run through the spine.
  • Cervical radiculopathy: numbness, altered reflexes, and weakness may come in to play when the nerve root in the spine becomes inflamed or damaged.
  • Cervical herniated disc: with a cervical herniated disc pain can radiate throughout the neck, shoulders, arms, and hands.
  • Sacroiliac (SI) joint disease: can create pain in legs, buttocks, groin, or lower back. Standing up, walking, sitting, or sleeping can be painful.

FAQ
  • Is Surgery Necessary for Sciatica?
    If you suffer from sciatica, treatment usually begins with nonsurgical methods, including physical therapy, and medication. After unsuccessful trials of nonsurgical treatments, surgery will then be considered. Surgery is more likely to be considered if sciatica is caused by a tumor, spinal cord compression, or a cyst. Surgery is also typically necessary if a surgically treatable condition in the lower back is present, such as spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, or a herniated disc.Is Surgery Necessary for Sciatica?
