Acute and Chronic Pain

Musculoskeletal pain to the tendons, ligaments, bones, and joints is often caused by injury or underlying conditions. Back pain is the most common pain symptom, caused by anything from poor posture to injury. Degeneration, overuse, strain, trauma, or disorders like fibromyalgia can result in pain anywhere in the body, including the:

Spine Conditions

Injuries and underlying conditions alike can cause problems in the spine, discs, and surrounding nerves. Common spine injuries and spinal conditions treated at Rolling Hills Medical include:

Doctor holds of spine and points to a disc disorder.
  • Herniated discs – occurs when the inner disc material leaks through cracks and puts pressure on surrounding nerves
  • Bulging discs – occurs when the outer, protective layer of a disc flattens over time and “bulges” into the spinal canal, sometimes causing nerve compression
  • Degenerative Disc Disease – wear and tear of the spinal discs either by drying out, repeated daily stress, or injury
  • Spondylosis – degenerative conditions resulting in reduced disc space that affects the facet joints from properly moving, causing bone spurs and nerve root inflammation
  • Spinal Stenosis – narrowing of the spinal column that compresses the spinal column and nerve roots, resulting in pain, numbness, and tingling
  • Sciatica – compression on the sciatic nerve cause radicular pain and tingling through the buttocks, legs, and feet
  • Scoliosis - irregular curvature of the spin that can cause poor posture and put excess pressure on nearby nerves, can cause a variety of symptoms from bone spurs to trouble walking

Joint Pain

Rheumatological pain affecting the joints and connective tissue is often the result of inflammation. Joint pain is most commonly felt in the knees, shoulders, and hips and caused by conditions like:

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis – pain and inflammation caused by the body’s immune system mistakenly attacking the soft tissue surrounding joints
  • Osteoarthritis – the most common arthritis characterized by the wearing down of protective cartilage at the ends of bones
  • Strains/ Sprains – repetitive use or overexertion that causes a muscle to pull or tear
  • Bursitis – inflammation of the bursae, small fluid-filled sacs that cushion the joints
  • Fibromyalgia – a widespread musculoskeletal pain condition affecting muscles, soft tissues, and trigger point
  • Gout – a form of arthritis caused by excessive uric acid deposits in the joint

Tennis Elbow

The elbow is a complicated joint that is made up of multiple moving parts. The elbow is where the humerus comes together with the tibia and ulna, which are the two smaller bones of the forearm. The elbow is a hinge joint that also provides some degree of rotational freedom. It is this rotational freedom that allows someone to play tennis.

The outside of the elbow is called the lateral epicondyle. This is where the stress of the elbow is located when someone develops elbow pain from tennis. There are a few causes and symptoms of tennis elbow that people should note.

  • Strains – over exertion or tearing of fibrous muscle or tendon
  • Frozen Shoulder – pain, stiffness, and loss of motion in the shoulder joint, usually caused by a fracture or inflammation of soft tissues in the rotator cuff
  • ACL injuries – common sports injuries affecting the anterior cruciate ligament that stabilizes the knee joint
  • Tendonitis – inflammation of the thick fibrous tendons that attach muscle to bone, often caused by overuse or overload
  • Golfers Elbow – a specific type of tendonitis (medial epicondylitis) that causes pain on the inner elbow, related to repeated elbow movements like golf club swinging, baseball throwing, and even construction work
