Understanding Spinal Conditions and Their Causes

Understanding Spinal Conditions and Their Causes

Spinal conditions can cause pain, restrict mobility and degrade the quality of life, whether they arise from spinal cord injury due to an accident, a deformity such as scoliosis, or normal degenerative changes associated with aging such as a herniated disc or bone spurs.

As the conduit for the nerves that give us feeling and control our movements, and the skeletal structure that gives our body its tremendous range of motion, a healthy spinal column is essential to overall health. But a myriad of conditions wrought by the normal wear and tear on the spine, an accident or injury, or from congenital deformity can seriously interfere with spinal health. Moreover, because spinal conditions can affect nerves that run throughout the body, the symptoms of the condition may be felt far from the source of the problem, such as in the arms or legs. This may disguise the true source of the problem, sometimes making diagnosis challenging.
