An ACL injury is a tear or sprain of the anterior cruciate (KROO-she-ate) ligament (ACL) — one of the major ligaments in your knee. ACL injuries most commonly occur during sports that involve sudden stops or changes in direction, jumping and landing — such as soccer, basketball, football and downhill skiing.
Pain that occurs in joints and feels like a constant ache.
Pain in the upper and/or lower areas of the back. This type of pain can be a constant ache, burning, stabbing, numbness, or tingling sensation.
A bulging disc injury is a common spine injury sustained to your spine's intervertebral disc. It can occur in your lumbar spine (lower back), thoracic spine (upper and mid-back) or your cervical spine (neck). A bulging disccan commonly be referred to as a slipped disc or a protruding disc.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm. The condition occurs when one of the major nerves to the hand — the median nerve — is squeezed or compressed as it travels through the wrist.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
A chronic (lasting greater than six months) pain condition that most often affects one limb (arm, leg, hand, or foot) usually after an injury. CRPS is believed to be caused by damage to, or malfunction of, the peripheral and central nervous systems.
Fractures that occur in the vertebrae of the spine and are typically due to a fall or injury to the back.
Hip pain can have causes that aren't due to underlying disease. Examples include trauma, lying on a side for a prolonged period, overuse, muscle stiffness, sitting in an awkward position, sprains, or strains.
As it relates to pain management, chronic aching in the knee.
Myofascial Pain Syndrome
Pain that is located in muscles throughout the body.
Pain related to the neck. This type of pain can be an ache, numbness and tingling, burning, or stabbing sensations. This pain can travel to the upper extremities (arms and hands).
Numbness and tingling sensations that can be felt in the arms, hands, legs and feet.
Rotator Cuff Tear
A tear in the tissues connecting muscle to bone (tendons) around the shoulder joint.
Osteoarthritis of the shoulder is a gradual wearing of the articular cartilage that leads to pain and stiffness. As the joint surface degenerates, the subchondral bone remodels, losing its sphericity and congruity. The joint capsule also becomes thickened, leading to further loss of shoulder rotation.
Scar Tissue and Pain After Back Surgery
The formation of scar tissue near the nerve root (also called epidural fibrosis) is a common occurrence after back surgery—so common, in fact, it is so common that it often occurs for patients with successful surgical outcomes as well as for patients with continued or recurrent leg pain and back pain.
Muscle tightness that comes and goes in a specific area.
Torn discs, also referred to as herniated, ruptured or bulging discs, occur because of a tear in the annulus fibrosus, or outer wall of the disc. Annular tears can result from years of wear and tear as well as natural degeneration, otherwise known as degenerative disc disease.
