Spinal Arthritis, also known as osteoarthritis of the spine or Degenerative Disc Disease, is a common condition that affects the joints and discs of the spine.
It is a degenerative condition that develops over time due to wear and tear on the spinal joints and discs, leading to the breakdown of cartilage and the development of Bone Spurs.
The symptoms of Spinal Arthritis can vary depending on the location and severity of the condition, but they often include:
- Pain and stiffness in the neck or back
- Limited range of motion in the spine
- Numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arms, hands, legs, or feet
- Muscle weakness or spasms
- Headaches or migraines
Diagnosis of Spinal Arthritis typically involves a physical exam, imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRI scans, and nerve function tests to evaluate the extent of nerve damage.
Typical Treatment options may include medications for pain and inflammation, chiropractic care, physical therapy, corticosteroid injections, and in severe cases, surgical intervention to remove Bone Spurs or stabilize the spine.
Our Approach to Spinal Arthritis Treatment
The SpineCor Dynamic Bracing System is designed to treat Scoliosis, a condition where the spine curves to the side. The SpineCor Dynamic Bracing System is a non-invasive treatment approach that uses a flexible brace to address the curvature of the spine and improve posture and function.
In many cases, Scoliosis and Spinal Arthritis may occur together, particularly in older adults. In these cases, treatment may involve a combination of approaches, including dynamic bracing, chiropractic care, physical therapy, and medications to manage pain and inflammation.
A significant number of patients with Spinal Arthritis and Scoliosis report mild to significant pain reduction or resolution when treated with the SpineCor Bracing System.
The primary goal of The SpineCor Dynamic Bracing System is to stop the progression of curvature and take the unwanted weight off the joints and structures of the spine that are causing the pain. The second goal is to stabilize and strengthen the spine. And finally, the third goal is to offer any correction if possible. Overall, improves quality of life.
