Spine ailments are common – don’t wait to get help.

dr atanda and dr paul review imagesOh, my aching neck and back! Ever hear or think that, or see someone walking around with a curved back, or a child in a back brace? Wonder what is causing those aches, pains, or conditions? Sure, it could be muscular, and a good massage or some R&R is all you need, but it could also be structural and stem from the spine. Don’t live with pain when a timely and accurate diagnosis can get you back to doing the things you love.

The most common spinal conditions seen by our physicians, Justin Paul, MD, PhD and Abiola Atanda, MD, of the OrthoConnecticut Spine team are disc herniations, stenosis, spondylolisthesis, vertebral compression fractures, spinal trauma, spine deformity, kyphosis, and scoliosis.

Typical age-related spinal issues arise from cartilage degeneration, arthritic joints, discs wearing down or shrinking, or the narrowing of the spinal canal in our neck or back. Decreasing bone mass, or osteoporosis, also leaves us more vulnerable to fractures, even with a low impact injury or fall.

Abnormal curvatures of the spine, or a spine deformity, are common in both children and adults. This could cause a change in posture and fatigue. In children, the curvature could progress particularly around growth spurt. While in adults, this could cause debilitating back pain and at times, compression on the nerves.
