Back & Neck Pain
In the US, back pain is one of the leading causes for missed work. Dr. Chaudhry can help dramatically reduce or eliminate pain to allow you to return to your normal daily activities.
Sciatica (Lumbar Radiculopathy)
Sciatica is the irritation of the sciatic nerve, a major nerve that passes down the back of each thigh. Sciatica typically causes pain that shoots down the back of one thigh or buttock.
Approximately 80% of the population is plagued at one time or another by neck or back pain. Pain can be bothersome and debilitating, limiting daily activities.
A herniated disc is a common injury that can affect any part of the spine. A herniated disc can cause severe pain and other problems in the arms or legs.
Herniated Disc (Cervical)
When a disc in the cervical spine ruptures, soft material from inside the disc can form a bulge that presses painfully against the spinal cord and nerve roots.
Facet Joint Syndrome
This condition is a deterioration of the facet joints, which help stabilize the spine and limit excessive motion. The facet joints are lined with cartilage and are surrounded by a lubricating capsule that enables the vertebrae to bend and twist.
Failed Back Syndrome
Post Laminectomy Syndrome
Post laminectomy syndrome, also called failed back syndrome, is a continuous and chronic pain that can develop after certain types of back surgery.
The spinal column contains open spaces that create passageways for the spinal cord and the spinal nerves. Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of (or an intrusion into) these openings. This can cause a compression of the nerves. Spinal stenosis most commonly affects the cervical and lumbar regions of the spine.
Spinal Stenosis (Cervical)
This condition is a narrowing of the spinal canal that results from the degeneration of bones, discs, or joints in the cervical spine.
Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) is a gradual process that may compromise the spine and lead to pain. Disc’s are the cushiony substance found between the bones in our spine. With aging, arthritic changes begin to take effect in the discs.
This condition is an inflammation of the tip of the tailbone, called the coccyx. It causes pain and tenderness between the buttocks.
