Your spine, also known as the vertebral column, is divided into three parts: cervical (neck), thoracic (upper back) and lumbar (lower back). Below that, is your sacrum and coccyx (tailbone). These areas are connected by muscles, joints, and your discs. Together, they protect the spinal cord, which is made up of many nerves that allow us to move and feel.
Spine-related pain is a very common cause of neck, mid-back, low back, and tailbone pain. It may be coming from the muscles, discs, joints (also called facet joints), or from irritated nerves as they exit the spine and go to different parts of your arms, chest, legs, and feet. When this happens, you may feel pain, numbness, tingling, or even burning sensations in your arms and legs. Some people describe this as sciatica.
At Capital Interventional Pain & Spine Center, we will perform a full physical exam to get to the root of your pain. There are a variety of treatment options for these conditions that can cause spine related pain, and we will work together to decrease this pain and improve your function. These treatments can vary from focused physical therapy, non-opioid medication management, image-guided injections, regenerative treatments, and minimally invasive surgery. Some of the more common reasons for spine related pain that we treat are listed below.
