The 'Why' Behind Your Pain

Most types of back pain have common causes that most of us will experience, resulting from aging or injury. Learn ways to stop back pain in its tracks.

Do You Have Pain When Sitting, Standing, or Walking?Spinal Stenosis

Lumbar spinal stenosis is a condition in which the lower spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal nerves in the lower back. Over two million patients nationwide are diagnosed and treated for this condition annually. It is generally found in people over the age of 50, and the likelihood of developing Lumbar spinal stenosis increases with age. The  root causes of lumbar spinal stenosis are:

Thickening of ligament tissue
Overgrowth of bone (osteoarthritis)
Bulging of discs

Facet Joint Dysfunction

Facet joint syndrome is an arthritis-like condition of the spine that can be a significant source of back pain.

Peripheral Neuropathy

Damage to the nerves located outside of the spinal cord, often causes weakness, numbness and pain.

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease refers to symptoms of back or neck pain caused by wear-and-tear on a spinal disc.

Neurogenic Claudication

Neurogenic claudication results from compression of the spinal nerves in the lumbar (lower) spine.

Joint Pain & Arthritis

Arthritis is the swelling and tenderness of joints. The main symptoms of arthritis are joint pain and stiffness.


Sometimes called a slipped or ruptured disk, a herniated disk often causes nerve impingement and shooting pain.

Do You Have Persistent Pain After Back Surgery?Persistent Pain Syndrome Following Surgery

In some situations following spinal fusion surgery, a patient’s pain may persist, intensify, or change in character. Unfortunately, this persistent or new pain may not be able to be fixed by additional surgery. Learn more about Persistent Pain Syndrome, and available treatment options.
