No Pain



Types of Back Pain We Address


A sharp pain that radiates down the back into the buttock, thigh, and sometimes further down the leg, caused by irritation or compression of the large sciatic nerve or its root branches.

Lumbar Strain

A common cause of lower back pain resulting from the overstretching or tearing of muscles and ligaments in the lumbar spine. Often a result of physical activity, poor posture, or sudden movement.

Herniated Discs

Occurs when the soft inner core of a spinal disc protrudes outward, potentially pressing on nearby nerves. This can lead to pain, numbness, and weakness in various parts of the body.

Spinal Stenosis

A narrowing of the spaces within the spine, potentially putting pressure on the nerves housed there. Typically develops gradually, leading to pain, numbness, and muscle weakness.
