SI Joint Pain And Piriformis Syndrome

Unlike disk pain or nerve root irritation arising from the spine itself, both the sacroiliac joint and the piriformis are technically outside of the spinal column

While low back and buttock pain are common ailments among Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson area residents, there is frequently an incomplete evaluation for two of the most common causes, the sacroiliac joint (aka the SI joint) and piriformis syndrome. This is in part due to both the complex anatomy in the area and the large number of structures that can cause low back and leg pain.

Even when these studies are negative, both sacroiliac pathology and piriformis syndrome can be exceptionally painful and unremitting. One helpful way to differentiate between these two conditions is to look for pain that is: · worse on one side of the buttock, · worsened by sitting, · associated with leg pain that is more difficult to describe than the easily-defined electrical nerve pain that occurs with a disk or sciatica.

TMJ Treatment

TMJ Greenville SC

TMJ treatment can provide relief to an estimated 50 million Americans. The fact that many dentists and physicians fail to diagnose this disorder — or do not have an effective treatment protocol for it — means that many people in the Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson areas are suffering needlessly with TMJ disorder.

Symptoms include head, neck, and even back aches. Patients with TMJ problems may also complain of earaches, bouts of deafness, or ringing in the ears. Clicking and popping can occur with chewing. Some patients experience dizziness, chronic fatigue, and difficulty swallowing.

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS)

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a rare but troublesome condition affecting some patients in the Greenville, Spartanburg, and Anderson areas

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) is a rare but troublesome condition affecting some patients in the Greenville, Spartanburg, and Anderson areas. It causes pain, weakness or numb sensations in the neck, arm and hand. Symptoms and signs of thoracic outlet syndrome are due to the compression or irritation of the neurovascular bundle at the various levels of the cervico-axillary and thoraco-brachial passages.

Depending on the exact site of injury and the injury component of the neurovascular bundle, three distinct syndromes or a combination thereof may be encountered (neurological, arterial and venous).
