Please note that at Sugar Land Chiropractors there is no contract and there are no hidden fees. The first disease we are going to talk about today is called Polymyalgia rheumatica. Polymyalgia rheumatica is an inflammatory disorder that can cause widespread of muscle pain and stiffness mostly in the neck, lower back, hips, thighs, and your upper arm. Polymyalgia rheumatica can often sometimes come suddenly and can even in a year or two resolve itself on its own. Fibromyalgia is a arthritis reacted condition that causes lower back pain more commonly. It is also a chronic syndrome that can widespread pain and cause fatigue. This can sometimes be debilitating. When visiting Sugar Land Chiropractors, they offer different tools and treatments to assist your needs. Now we will go over different types of conditions. One condition we will go over today is called Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a bone condition that causes loss of mass in the bones and becomes very brittle. This causes them more prone to break with any slight trauma that is encountered.
The condition can also occur due to aging, insufficient activity, or a low calcium diet. The use of medications with corticosteroids also can commonly affect the spine. When this happens the inner spongy bone and the solid outer portion of the vertebrae become more porous in the spine. The weekend vertebrae can then break causing about on half of their height to be lost. This is also known as a compression fracture and are often very painful. In most cases the resulting back pain can be severe. However, pain usually resolves within a week but for some people it can be long-lasting. Visit you local Sugar Land Chiropractors for all your chiropractic needs and help. Spinal Stenosis can also occur when there is a change in arthritis leading to bony overgrowth of the vertebrae causing the thickness of the ligaments. Spinal stenosis literally means quote spinal narrowing and quote spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis can occur if your experiencing osteoarthritis or in other words ankylosing spondylitis. If you experience a large amount of overgrowth with spinal stenosis it can cause the spinal column to narrow and press the nerves that are housed within. Since the affected nerves mostly have functions the condition can then cause a variety of diverse problems located in the lower body such as your back pain, constipation or urinary incontinence or even some pain and numbness in the legs.
At Sugar Land Chiropractors we offer a wide variety of tools and equipment that you can use at home to continue medical treatment provided by your chiropractor. Another form of disease we will talk about called Paget’s disease. Paget’s disease is a chronic disease that can cause excessive breakdown and start a formation of bone whish can then cause the bone to become more enlarged or misshapen resulting it to then weaken. Paget’s disease usually does not affect your entire skeleton system but just one or even a couple few of bones. Among all of your bones your vertebrae are most commonly affected by Paget’s disease but at Sugar Land Chiropractors you can be referred to a medical specialist for x-rays or an MRI if necessary. Sciatica is when there is an inflammation to the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is also the largest nerve in the human body. The sciatic nerve runs from your lower part of your spinal cord into the buttocks area and then down the back of the leg into the foot.
Sciatic is most commonly caused by compression of the nerve that then exits the spine by a herniated disc. This also known as a rupture of one of the structures where the vertebrae are cushioned in the spine. Sciatica can often be felt as a sharp or burning pain that can radiate from the hip. You can also experience lots of lower back pain with sciatica. Sciatica is not something that goes away on its own or overnight. You cannot treat Sciatica at your Sugar Land Chiropractors office. You may have heard of something called scoliosis. Scoliosis is when spine twists to one side unlike a normal spine that is supposed to be running straight up the center of your spine. Scoliosis can be identified in two different ways called true or functional. True scoliosis means that it is an abnormal development in the spine.
Functional scoliosis means that the cause is not directly related to the spine. When a difference in the leg’s length occurs, it can cause the pelvis to tilt to one side and compensate causing functional scoliosis. True scoliosis is still largely unknown as to what is the cause of it however some doctors suspect that it can be a result of the imbalanced growth that is done in childhood. Regardless of what it the cause this is something that can be treated and better explained at your local Sugar Land Chiropractors office.
