Have Shooting Pain Down Your Neck, Arms, and into Your Hands?Cervical Radiculopathy

Cervical 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 stenosis annually. It is generally found in people over the age of 50, and the likelihood of developing cervical spinal stenosis increases with age. The  root causes of cervical 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

Peripheral neuropathy is the result of damage to the nerves, often causing weakness, numbness and pain.

Cervical Spinal Stenosis

Cervical stenosis is the result of changes with the vertebrae of the neck and the joints between those vertebrae.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A painful condition of the hand and fingers caused by compression of a major nerve in the wrist.

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.
