Causes of Neck and Back Pain

Back pain occurs for a variety of reasons. Some of the common causes of chronic back pain are: lumbar disk herniation, degenerative disk disease, and isthmic spondylolisthesis. In older adults, causes of back pain include: facet joint osteoarthritis and degenerative spondylolisthesis.

The bones of the spine are cushioned by disks which are filled with fluid. Sometimes, due to injury or age, the fluid in the disk can leak out. Because the disk protects the spinal root nerve, when the fluid leaks, pressure from the spinal bones are placed on the nerve, causing pain. Pain that is the result of a herniated disk can radiate down the back and legs. Symptoms of a herniated disk include:

  • Leg Pain
  • Leg Numbness
  • Lower Back Pain

While the pain of a herniated disk usually improves after about six weeks, there are non-surgical options patients can use to alleviate the pain of a herniated disk while they recover. An experienced chiropractor can help ease the pain of a herniated disk and offer much-needed relief. Dr. Roger Clifford is a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist who can help relieve your neck and back pain. If you are looking for a chiropractor in Dallas, TX or Addison, TX, contact our office today to get the relief you need.

Back Pain Due to Running or Jogging

As an avid runner himself, Dr. Roger Clifford understands the unique physical demands runners place on their bodies. He also knows how important it is to keep runners running if possible, or to get runner back to running as soon as possible. Many of the injuries he treats he’s also suffered through himself and he uses that personal perspective to help his runners and other athletes recover.

While lumbar degenerative disk disease is genetically inherited, its progression can be exacerbated by the natural strain running places on the body. Isthmic spondylolisthesis is a condition whereby one vertebrae slips forward over the one below it, putting increased pressure on the nerves. Sometimes this occurs due to small fractures or stress placed on the bones. 5-7% of the population has some form of isthmic spondylolisthesis. Isthmic spondylolisthesis occurs due to repetitive stress on the bones of the back. While in most cases there are few or no symptoms, running or repetitive strain on the bones can increase the chance that symptoms will develop. In this case, a person suffering from this condition will experience back or neck pain. The severity of slippage of the vertebrae are rated on a scale of one to four. A slippage with a grade of one means that 25% or less of the vertebrae has slipped forward. A grade of two means that less than 50% of the vertebrae has slipped forward. A grade of three, means that anywhere from 50% to 75% percent of the vertebrae has slipped forward. A grade of four means that the vertebrae has slipped off center more than 75%. For most people, the slippage rarely exceeds a level two. In these cases, a chiropractor can offer non-surgical relief.

As a runner himself, Dr. Roger Clifford understands how the repetitive stress of running can lead to neck and back pain. He also understands how important pain management is for runners and joggers who wish to continue to run and jog as part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Clifford has the years of experience and training required to help athletes and individuals suffering from neck and back pain as a result of repetitive stress from running, jogging, or other physically-demanding activities.
