Conditions We Treat


Arthritis is inflammation in one or more joints and symptoms can include pain, swelling, and stiffness. There are different types that can be caused by wear and tear, infections, underlying diseases, or as a result of aging.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by excess pressure on the median nerve which runs through the wrist. Symptoms can include pain, numbness, and tingling sensation, particularly in the thumb and first two fingers. Repetitive use, prior injuries, and underlying health conditions can lead to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

An inherited disorder, it is characterized by a weakening of the connective tissues, particularly in the skin, and joints. The most common symptoms are overly flexible joints and stretchy or fragile skin. A more severe form, called vascular EDS, can even cause rupturing in the blood vessel walls.


Gout is caused by an excess of uric acid crystallizing and being deposited in the joints. Gout flare-ups can occur suddenly and without warning. Often felt in the big toe, symptoms include severe pain, redness, and swelling in the joints.


Inflammation occurs when the body releases chemicals that trigger an immune response to fight off infection or heal damaged tissue.

Knee pain

Knee pain can originate from many causes including acute injuries to the knee, damage to surrounding muscles, tendons, or ligaments, or arthritis or degeneration in the bones or surrounding cartilage.

Neck pain

Neck pain can have any number of causes including acute injuries, damage to the surrounding muscles and nerves, disc herniation, or whiplash, to name a few.


The most common form of arthritis, it occurs when the flexible, connective tissue at the end of bones begins to break down causing changes to the surrounding bones. Symptoms commonly include joint pain in the hands, hips, knees, neck, and lower back.


The sciatic nerve runs from the lower spine down the back of the leg. When this nerve becomes compressed, often due to injury or inflammation, or a herniated disc, it can cause pain in this area.

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

Usually the result of a previous ankle injury, this can occur when the nerve in the ankle becomes compressed. Often felt as burning pain at the sole of the foot, or numbness or tingling in the base of the foot.

Trigger Finger

When the tendons in a finger become inflamed, it can lead to this condition where a finger gets stuck in a bent position before snapping straight. Worse in women, people with arthritis or diabetes, and those whose hands are strained in regular activities, symptoms include a locking sensation, popping or clicking, and stiffness or tenderness in the affected finger.

Back pain

Back pain can be caused by any number of problems, such as acute injuries, sprains, strains, overuse, or more serious problems such as a herniated disc, sciatica, and whiplash.

De Quervain’s tenosynovitis

The tendons running along the side of the wrist to the base of the thumb can begin to swell, usually caused by repetitive hand or wrist movements, and lead to pain when moving. This is often felt by the base of the thumb.


The cause is not fully understood, but fibromyalgia leads to a heightened sensitivity to pain. It is a chronic disorder that causes widespread muscle pain and tenderness, as well as fatigue and trouble sleeping.

Headaches & Migraines

Occipital Neuralgia- Headaches that can feel like piercing or throbbing pain starting in the back of the head and running over the top to behind one or both eyes. This is caused when the occipital nerves, which run through the scalp, become damaged or inflamed.

Injured or Herniated Disc

Discs are rubbery cushions between each vertebra of the spine. The soft center of these discs can slip out through a crack in the exterior. While there are sometimes no symptoms, if this disc compresses or irritates a nearby nerve, it can lead to pain, numbness, or weakness in a leg or arm.

Morton’s Neuroma

A type of benign tumor, it is characterized by a thickening of the tissue surrounding a nerve that leads to the toes, also known as an interdigital neuroma. It can be caused by excess pressure or injury, symptoms often include a sharp, burning pain in the toes or ball of the foot, or may cause a sensation like a pebble in the shoe.

Nerve Blocks

The sphenopalatine ganglion is a group of trigeminal nerve cells located in the back of the nasal passages. An SPG block delivers a local anesthetic to this nerve to relieve headache pain.

Plantar Fasciitis

When the thick band of tissues that connect the heel bone to the toes becomes inflamed. Often worse in the morning, symptoms are often described as stabbing pain near the heel.

Spinal Stenosis

Commonly occurring in the next and lower back, certain spaces in the spine can narrow, creating pressure on the spinal cord and surrounding nerves. It is often caused by age-related wear and tear and can lead to pain, numbness, muscle weakness, and even impaired bladder or bowel control.


A condition in which the tissue connecting muscle to bone becomes inflamed. This can lead to pain and discomfort in the surrounding area.


A neck injury that can occur when the head is suddenly forced into a back-and-forth motion damaging tissue in the neck. Commonly associated with motor vehicle crashes, it can also be caused by sports injuries or other traumas such as falls. The main symptoms are neck or shoulder pain and stiffness, loss of range of motion, headaches, and arm numbness or tingling.


Bursae are fluid-filled pads that act as cushions at the joints, such as the knees, hips, elbows, and shoulders. Bursitis is when these bursae become inflamed, leading to pain, stiffness, and swelling.

Disc Degeneration

Between each vertebra are rubbery cushions called discs that can wear down over time. A form of osteoarthritis, while not always painful, the wearing down of these discs can lead to increased pain in the neck and upper and lower back.

Foot pain

Foot pain can be caused by any number of issues, from minor injuries, overuse, sprains, and strains, to more chronic conditions such as plantar fasciitis, neuropathy, fibromyalgia, and tarsal tunnel syndrome, just to name a few.

Myofascial Pain Syndrome

A disorder in which pressure on sensitive points in the muscles causes pain in seemingly unrelated areas of the body. It can often occur after repeated injuries or overuse and symptoms include persistent pain or tender muscle knots.


While commonly associated with diabetes, there can be other causes. It is a result of damage to the nerves and often causes weakness, numbness, or pain. It is typically present in the hands and feet, and symptoms typically include pain, numbness, weakness, or pins-and-needles sensations.

Rotator Cuff Injury

The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint that keep the head of the arm bone within the socket of the shoulder. Injuries to this area are more common with increased age, repetitive motion, and overuse, and can result in dull, aching shoulder pain, arm weakness, and decreased range of motion.


Sprains are an injury to the ligaments at a joint in the body, and strains are an injury to the muscles or tendons.

Tennis elbow/golfer’s elbow

Another term for Lateral Epicondylitis, or irritation in the tissue that connects the forearm to the elbow. Often caused by repetitive wrist and arm motions, such as tennis or golf, it usually presents as pain outside of the elbow, and sometimes the wrist or forearm.

Trigger Point Injections

Also called “knots”, are sensitive spots in soft tissues or tight muscle fibers that cause pain or aching.
