About Spinal Arthritis
Spinal arthritis affects the joints of the spinal column and causes them to not function properly. Usually involving inflammation or degenerative symptoms that impact the cartilage, discs, and bones, this disorder changes the structure of the spine. Often, it is caused by advanced age, obesity, diabetes, and other degenerative diseases. Many patients who suffer from this condition often experience pain in the neck and back, numbness in the limbs, and bone-on-bone grating when shifting the spine. Tricity Pain Associates in Corpus Christi, TX has proudly helped their community manage pain associated with spinal arthritis. Please contact our friendly staff to set up an appointment with our expert physician.
