Head & Neck Conditions

Cervical
Degenerative Disc Disease

Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease is the degeneration of the discs that cushion the spine. Disc degeneration is often associated with spinal instability, and bone spurs may subsequently grow in an attempt to stabilize the spine.

Whiplash

Whiplash is a neck injury that can occur during rear-end automobile collisions, when your head suddenly moves backward and then forward — similar to the motion of someone cracking a whip.

Cervical Facet Joint Arthritis

Cervical facet arthritis occurs in the cervical region and often involves neck pain localized in the area of the cervical facet.

Herniated Disc

A cervical herniated disc refers to a disc that is no longer contained completely between the intervertebral space.

Discogenic Pain

Discogenic pain is pain originating from a damaged vertebral disc, particularly due to degenerative disc disease. However, not all degenerated discs cause pain. Disc degeneration occurs naturally with age.

Disc Tear

A condition which refers to a problem with a rubbery disc between the spinal bones.
This condition occurs when the soft center of a spinal disc pushes through a crack in the tougher exterior casing.

Cervical Radiculitis

Cervical radiculitis or radiculopathy is caused by impingement of a nerve root, essentially a “pinched” nerve.

Occipital Neuralgia

Occipital neuralgia is a neurological condition that involves dysfunction of the occipital nerves.
