At Inspired Spine, you can find treatment for nearly any condition affecting the spine. Whether this results in pain in the back or even discomfort radiating to other areas of the body, we always get to the source of the problem and then provide treatment for your condition. Our primary focus is always on non-surgical measures first, followed by minimally invasive keyhole surgeries when necessary, regardless of the condition.
When you visit us, we will first work with you to diagnose the condition that is responsible for your spinal issues using a range of advanced diagnostic techniques. From there, we can evaluate the severity of your condition and look at your personal medical history to determine the right course of treatment.
The following are just a handful of conditions we can treat at Inspired Spine:
- DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE: The result of this condition is intervertebral disc degeneration. The deterioration presses on spinal nerves, leading to radiating pain along the arms or legs.
- DISC HERNIATION: With a disc herniation, the inner material of your intervertebral discs pushes out through the annulus (the tough outer layer) and into your spinal cord. This is also known as a slipped or ruptured disc.
- SPONDYLOLISTHESIS: Degenerative spondylolisthesis is the result of long-term spinal instability. Many patients with this condition experience radiculopathy and severe back pain. Although it is common, patients are not always aware they have this condition.
- SPINAL STENOSIS: In patients with spinal stenosis, the spaces within the spine narrow. This, in turn, leads to pressure on the nerves and spinal cord. Spinal stenosis can impact the canal along the center of your spinal column, the openings between the vertebrae, or the canals along the base of nerves.
- DEGENERATIVE SCOLIOSIS: Scoliosis is when the spine has abnormal curvature, and it can impact any portion of the spine. Degenerative scoliosis worsens over time, increasing the urgency of treatment.
- THORACIC DISC DISEASE: Also known as a thoracic spine herniated disc, this is a very serious condition. It is when the disc herniation mentioned above occurs in the middle portion of the back. The severity of the condition is due to the lack of extra space surrounding the spinal cord in the area.
- FRACTURES: Spinal fractures are very serious compared to breaking other areas of the body since dislocated or fractured vertebra may lead the bone fragments to pinch or damage your spinal cord or spinal nerves. Fractures can lead to a range of symptoms, such as pain, problems walking, and paralysis, and treatment will vary.
- INTERVERTEBRAL DISC HERNIATION: Intervertebral disc herniation is simply a type of disc herniation that occurs in the intervertebral discs, the strong yet spongy connective tissue connecting vertebrae.
- LOW BACK PAIN: Low back pain is more of a symptom of a condition than a condition itself, but it can be due to various causes. We can assist with low back pain from ligament sprains, muscle strains, lumbar herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, facet joint dysfunction, spinal stenosis, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, spondylolisthesis, osteoarthritis, deformities, compression fractures, trauma, and more.
- MYELOPATHY: Myelopathy is when spinal cord activity is lost due to natural spinal degeneration or an injury, and it must be treated proactively.
- OSTEOARTHRITIS OF THE SPINE: Osteoarthritis impacts weight-bearing joints and is a type of inflammation, so osteoarthritis of the spine is inflammation of your spinal joints. Most spinal arthritis affects the facet or vertebral joints and can be linked to degenerative disc disease at times.
- RADICULOPATHY: This is when at least one nerve or nerve root is damaged. This is fairly common and can impact any portion of the spine, although it is most likely to affect the cervical region (the neck), causing pain.
- SPINAL DEFORMITIES: We treat a range of spinal deformities, including those that lead to unnatural curvature, such scoliosis, lordosis, and kyphosis.
Regardless of the condition you are suffering from, Inspired Spine will take care during the diagnostic process to ensure it is properly identified. We will then work with you to select the ideal treatment method for your needs. Treatment always begins with diagnosing a condition, making diagnostics one of the most important things we do.
