The spine is a highly complex and critical component of the human body, protecting the spinal cord while offering strength, structure, and flexibility.

The spine's ability to provide support and mobility simultaneously makes it more susceptible to injury. 

Since spine injuries can affect virtually any body part, there is a wide range of conditions and injuries encompassed by spine pain, thereby causing a wide range of symptoms.

From scoliosis and stenosis ro sciatica and herniated discs, spine pain can be the result of a serious condition.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of spine pain, it's important to seek treatment as soon as possible before your spine injury or conditions worsens:

  • Sharp pain in the lower back
  • A popping noise or feeling in the back after straining or heavy lifting
  • Numbness, tingling, or cramping in one or both legs
  • Weakness in a specific area of the leg or arm
  • Loss of balance when walking
  • Incontinence

Our spine specialist at Western Orthopaedics understands that damage to the spinal cord is not only disruptive but also potentially devastating to those affected.

Common Conditions of the Spine:

  • Lumbar Disc Herniation

    One type of weight-bearing joint in the human spine is the intervertebral disc.
  • Spinal Stenosis

    Spinal Stenosis is a condition caused by narrowing of the spinal canal which causes pressure on the spinal cord.
  • Compression Fractures

    The building blocks of the spinal column are cylindrically-shaped bones called vertebrae. Each vertebra has an arch attached behind it, and taken together, these arches form the spinal canal.
  • Cervical Disc Herniation

    One type of weight-bearing joint in the human spine is the intervertebral disc. They are located between the vertebrae and consist of soft cartilage surrounded by a fibrous sheath called the annulus.
  • Scoliosis

    Scoliosis is defined as a persistent lateral curvature of the spine of more than 10 degrees in the standing position, also associated with rotation of the spine.
