Elbow Pain

A common cause of elbow pain in adults is tendinitis, an inflammation and injury to the tendons (soft tissues that attach muscle to bone). People who play racquet sports are most likely to injure the tendons on the outside of the elbow and can suffer from what is commonly known as “tennis elbow.” Golfers may suffer from “golfer’s elbow,” which affects the tendons on the inside of the elbow. Elbow pain is not limited to athletes, however. Elbow tendonitis can be caused by simple everyday tasks such as gardening, using a screwdriver, or overusing your wrist and arm.

Hip & Thigh Pain

Hip pain is a common complaint that can be caused by a wide variety of problems. Injuries within the hip joint itself tend to result in pain on the inside of your hip or your groin. If you are experiencing pain on the outside of your hip, upper thigh or outer buttock, it’s usually caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues that surround the hip joint.

Knee Pain

When suffering from knee pain, many people avoid activities they might otherwise enjoy and have difficulties doing daily tasks. There are many causes of knee pain, from sports-related injuries such as ACL tears tendon and muscle strains from general overuse. The location of pain in the knee can give our doctors an idea of what may be causing your pain; a proper diagnosis from a doctor is important to ensure the right condition receives treatment and to rule out any underlying factors that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Lower Back Pain

The most common causes of lower back pain are injury, overuse of muscles, ligaments, and joints, and pressure on nerve roots in the spinal canal. Lower back pain can also be caused by a herniated disc, which is sometimes brought on by repeated vibration or motion (as during sports activity, when using a machine, or lifting in the wrong way) or by a sudden heavy strain or increased pressure to the lower back. In addition, osteoarthritis affects the small joints in the spine and can lead to lower back pain.

Our skilled and experienced doctors can diagnose and prescribe a treatment plan for your lower back pain; contact us today.

Lumbar Radiculitis/Sciatica

Lumbar radiculitis is an inflammation or irritation of a nerve root in the lower, or lumbar, region of the spine. Pain is a result of pressure on the nerve root where it connects to the spinal column; it radiates down and along the sciatic nerve. Depending on the location of the pressure point, a person may experience pain in the upper thigh, lower back, calf, foot, or gluteal muscles. Dolson Avenue Medical’s highly trained staff, will evaluate and diagnose your condition, and then prescribe the most effective treatment plan possible.

Neck Pain

In addition to injury, neck muscles can be strained from poor posture, whether it's from leaning into your computer at work or hunching over your workbench at home. Wear-and-tear arthritis is also a common cause of neck pain, which is commonly associated with dull aching. Sometimes pain in the neck is worsened with movement. Other symptoms associated with some forms of neck pain include numbness, tingling, tenderness, or sharp, shooting pain.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common joint disorder; loss of cartilage and overgrowth of bone within the affected joint can lead to pain and joint deformity. The disease may affect one or more joints and is a leading cause of disability among adults. Primary osteoarthritis most often affects the joints of the finger, hip, knee, big toe, and the cervical and lumbar spine. Bony lumps, known as Bouchard's nodes and Heberden's nodes, can appear and worsen over time at the middle and end joints of the fingers. The hip and knee are particularly vulnerable to osteoarthritis because of their weight-bearing functions.

Osteoarthritis is a serious condition. Contact us today to find relief.

Osteoporosis

Approximately four times as many women have low bone mass, or osteoporosis, as men. It is especially prevalent among postmenopausal women. Osteoporosis causes bones to become thin, brittle, and weak. When the bones in the spine weaken, they can break or cave in under normal pressure. The thinning bones can collapse during normal activity, leading to a spinal fracture. These compression fractures can cause a great deal of pain and can permanently alter the shape and strength of the spine.

Paresthesia – Numbness and Tingling

Back or neck injury, herniated discs, nerve pressure, and osteoporosis are leading causes of paresthesia. Paresthesia is an abnormal condition in which a person feels a sensation of burning, numbness, tingling, itching, or prickling in the extremities, such as the hands, feet, fingers, and toes. Paresthesia can also be described as a pins-and-needles or skin-crawling sensation. Chronic or intermittent paresthesia over a long period of time can be a sign of neurological disease or traumatic nerve damage.

Contact us today to find relief from the symptoms of paresthesia.

Post-Surgical Treatment

Post-surgical pain can be caused by nerve or muscle damage as a result of the surgical procedure itself. Once your surgeon or medical doctor has determined that the cause of your pain does not warrant more surgical procedures, the pain and discomfort experienced can be alleviated through physical therapy, massage therapy, and acupuncture.

Rotator Cuff Syndrome

If rotator cuff injuries are diagnosed early, effective treatments can prevent further injury and deterioration. Rotator cuff syndrome is a disorder most frequently diagnosed in individuals whose work involves repeated or sustained raising of the upper arms. Such repetitive motion irritates the muscles and tendons by putting pressure against the bone at the top of the shoulder blade. When the arm is raised repeatedly, the front edge of the shoulder blade can rub across the rotator cuff

If you’ve been diagnosed with rotator cuff syndrome, or have any level of shoulder pain, contact us for a free consultation.

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain may be accompanied by numbness and tingling and may require medical intervention, typically in the form of medication and physical therapy. Shoulder pain may be the result of anything from normal activities of daily living to serious health conditions, and may not develop immediately after an injury. In addition, a herniated spinal disc can cause pain in the shoulder and osteoarthritis can cause discomfort and localized swelling.

If you’re experiencing shoulder pain, contact us for a free consultation.

Thoracic Pain/Upper Back Pain

Thoracic pain, also known as mid-back pain or upper back pain is much less common than low back or neck pain. Frequently, thoracic back pain has a benign musculoskeletal origin. Thoracic back pain can occur as a result of trauma or sudden injury, or it can occur through strain or poor posture over time. The most common cause of thoracic back pain appears to originate from muscular irritation or other soft tissue problems. These can arise from lack of strength, poor posture, prolonged sitting at a computer, using a backpack, overuse injuries (such as repetitive motion), or trauma (such as a whiplash injury caused by a car accident or as a result of a sports injury).

Upper Arm & Joint Pain

Upper arm and joint pain can be caused by injury or trauma, tendonitis, strained muscles, nerve damage, heart disease, or even acid reflux disease. It could be a symptom of a serious condition, and should be diagnosed by a doctor.

Wrist Pain- Carpel Tunnel Syndrome

The precise location of your wrist pain can give clues to what might be causing your symptoms; the wrist should be examined by a doctor. Many types of wrist pain are caused by sudden injuries that result in sprains or fractures, but wrist pain can also be caused by more long-term problems such as repetitive stress, arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
