What Orthopedic Conditions Do You Treat?

Orthopedic ConditionsAt Coast Spine and Sports Medicine, we treat orthopedic conditions with a comprehensive approach that begins with the least invasive measures possible to improve your quality of life and offer significant pain relief. We also offer minimally invasive pain management and orthopedic surgery for the following conditions.

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis
    • This is a progressive type of rheumatic arthritis affecting the lumbar spine.
  • Arthritis
    • This is a very common inflammatory joint condition that comes in many forms such as osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
    • This degenerative spine condition happens when spinal discs become damaged and break down over time.
  • Discitis
    • This is a type of spinal inflammation that often occurs due to osteomyelitis, or a bone infection.
  • Facet Joint Syndrome
    • This is a condition that causes pain at the facet joints of the spine which help the spine flex. It can be caused by osteoarthritis.
  • Herniated Disc
    • This refers to a tear or weakness in the harder outer shell of a spinal disc that allows the soft, jelly-like interior material to bulge out and compress a nearby nerve.
  • Kyphosis
    • This condition, also called a hunchback, can affect the thoracic spine (upper back) or cervical spine (neck) and it causes an abnormal outward curvature.
  • Lordosis
    • This condition, also called a swayback, can affect the lumbar spine (lower back) or cervical spine (neck) and it causes an abnormal inward curvature.
  • Muscle Spasms
    • This common condition happens when a muscle involuntarily contracts due to dehydration, fatigue, or an underlying condition.
  • Myelopathy
    • This condition is severe spinal cord compression that’s often a gradual but degenerative disorder.
  • Osteoporosis
    • This condition, also called bone loss, happens when more bone is lost than is replaced which increases the risk of fractures.
  • Piriformis Syndrome
    • This neuromuscular disorder happens when the piriformis muscle of the buttock compresses the sciatic nerve and causes sciatica symptoms.
  • Radiculopathy
    • This condition is a broad term for nerve root compression within the spine.
  • Sciatica
    • This is a type of radiculopathy that happens when the sciatic nerve is compressed.
  • Scoliosis
    • This condition is an abnormal sideways spine curvature.
  • Spinal Stenosis
    • This condition is a narrowing of the spinal canal which puts pressure on spinal nerve roots.
  • Strain/Sprain
    • Sprains refer to overstretching or tearing of the ligaments connecting bone to bone. Strains refer to overstretching or tearing of muscles or the tendons that connect muscle to bone.
  • Trauma
    • This refers to any sudden physical injury that can be the result of a traffic accident, sports, recreational activities, accidents, or assault.
  • Tumors
    • This refers to abnormal tissue masses of the spine that can be malignant or benign.
  • Whiplash
    • Cervical acceleration-deceleration (CAD) syndrome happens when the head is jerked forward and backward with force and causes injuries such as strains, sprains, radiculopathy, and herniated discs.
