Disc bulges (slipped disc)
Disc bulges (old term slipped disc) are a painful condition that can be debilitating, restricting and sometimes quite scary to the patient. Disc bulges can occur as an overuse condition which comes on overtime or a sudden instant pain in the lower back.
Lower back pain
Any type of person can get lower back pain. Lower back pain can be mild or it can be a debilitating, life-altering condition. Lower back pain has many causes. The most common causes of lower back pain are joint tightness (facet disorder), muscle/ligament strain-tightness, or disc bulges (slipped discs). Other problems can cause lower back pain but these are not as common as the above reasons.
One of the most common causes of neck pain is muscle and joint tightness. Neck and head pain is presenting more frequently due to the amount of interaction people have these days with electronic devices. This includes sitting at a desk for long periods or craning the neck forward to look at a smartphone.

Sciatic pain or sciatica, is a pain that starts in the lower back then sends a referred pain into the buttock region or down the legs which can reach all the way down to the toes. The pain may be accompanied with numbness or tingling in the same areas and if it is really bad it can cause weakness in the leg or foot muscles.
Foot and Heel Pain
Foot and heel pain can be debilitating. For most of us, we are constantly on our feet. Because of this, our feet don’t get much respite. Many people are on them from first thing in the morning until they hit the hay at night.
