Common Spinal Conditions We Treat in Hempstead Village, New York
Our skilled, award-winning neurosurgeons, neurologists, orthopedic specialists and physicians strive to provide a thorough assessment of your spinal condition, offer expert diagnosis, and provide treatment with conservative and non-invasive treatments in mind. Painful spinal conditions can impact your quality of life and deter you from doing activities you once enjoyed.
Degenerative Disk Disease
A healthy spine is strong and flexible with the help of 33 malleable disks that sit between each vertebra that diminish grinding between each part. These disks are externally tough and internally made from gel-like material that acts as trauma absorbers for your spine. These spinal disks lose hydration and become more susceptible to damage as you age. The more damage you sustain, the thinner these disks get. This can cause them to rupture, bulge, or spill out of their place.
Degenerative Disk Disease often impacts middle-aged and older adults and becomes more prominent as you age. This condition is common and impacts more than 3 million people yearly in the U.S. At NJ Spine & Orthopedic, we can alleviate symptoms and pain from Degenerative Disk Disease with minimally invasive procedures, and we can help restore complete range of motion.
A herniated disk can result from strenuous activity that your back can’t endure, and it results in the rupture, bulge, or spill of the gel-like fluid within the intervertebral disks protecting your spine. Common activities associated with herniated discs include exercise, lifting heavy objects, aging, injury, or improper back movement. Middle-aged adults and older adults are more susceptible to this spinal injury because of the normal wear on the spine. Additionally, high-risk individuals for this condition are overweight patients because of the added stress on their back.
Herniated disks are treated with conservative methods first, such as anti-inflammatory medications, exercise, and physical therapy. After six months, the medical experts at NJ Spine and & Orthopedics start considering minimally invasive surgical options like artificial disk replacement.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
This condition, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), impacts the use of our hands and impairs functionality. CTS occurs because of impingement or inflammation of the median nerve in our wrist. Because of this compression, it travels and affects areas such as the hands, fingers, and wrist. Sometimes it can result in immobility in these areas because the median nerve is the communication channel to our arms that tells the fingers, forearm, and thumb how to feel and move. When this line of communication is obstructed or compressed, it creates pain and immobility called carpal tunnel syndrome. Possible causes of CTS include:
- Repetitive movement
- Certain illnesses
It can be difficult to personally determine if your wrist pain is CTS or general strain. A doctor will be able to diagnose your pain and determine your next best steps.
