Conditions We Treat
Radiculopathy or radicular pain refers to the compression or inflammation of a spinal nerve (pinched nerve) resulting in a range of symptoms including weakness, back pain (spine pain), tingling and numbness. The most common symptom of radicular pain is sciatica. Dr. Kapsokavathis provides treatment options for Cervical Radiculopathy and Lumbar Radiculopathy.
Sprains and Strains
Twisting or lifting may result in an injury to the spine known as a sprain or strain. A strain refers to an injury to a muscle or tendon while a sprain refers to the stretching or tearing of a ligament. A sprain or strain can result in localized pain and/or spasms. This is one of the most frequent diagnoses and can also result from an acute injury such as whiplash. Dr. Kapsokavathis provides treatment options for Cervical and Lumbar Sprains and Strains.
Between your vertebrae in your spine are flat, rubbery pads that absorb pressure and allow the back to flex and/or bend. The exterior of the spinal disk is known as the annulus. A herniated disc occurs when the inside of the spinal disc (known as the nucleus), pushes through a tear in the annulus. Dr. Kapsokavathis provides treatment options for Cervical Herniated Disc and Lumbar Herniated Disc.
The bones that make up your spine are called vertebrae. Spondylolisthesis occurs when one of your vertebrae slips out of place. When the vertebrae is out of place, it can cause pain in your legs and/or lower back. Dr. Kapsokavathis provides treatment options for Cervical Spinal Stenosis and Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.
