About Spinal Arthritis
Tricity Pain Associates in New Braunfels and Seguin, TX specializes in treating all kinds of pain disorders, including spinal arthritis. This is a condition that hinders the function and physical structure of the joints within the spine. It often affects older patients as it is generally the result of normal wear and tear, but it can be brought on by certain medical conditions, like diabetes, gout, psoriasis, or Lyme disease. Contributing factors, such as obesity and genetic makeup, can also increase one's risk of spinal arthritis. Common symptoms of spinal arthritis include neck and back pain, a decreased range of motion, and stiffness in the spine. If you or your loved one has been recently diagnosed with spinal arthritis, contact our practice to sit down with one of our medical professionals today.

"I cannot begin to explain how much Dr. V as helped me over the last year. I came to him at the recommendation of my rheumatologist due to an undiagnosed pain in my lower back. The pain was so intense I was unable to find any comfortable position much less sleep. From my first visit, I realized Dr. V was different. He spent time with me, listened to me, and was genuinely concerned about the ulceration (later diagnosed as lupus panniculitis) on my lower back and the immense pain it was causing. He was able to provide me with immediate relief. After my surgery, his office worked to get me in as soon as possible to adjust my medication. When Dr. V saw me hunched over, barely able to move, and walking with a walker, he told me he would take care of me, and he did. He adjusted my medication, and I was able to return to work when the surgeon released me. Besides his medical knowledge, Dr. V always made me feel that he cared about me as a person not just a patient. I would recommend Dr. V to anyone who is living with pain and wants their life back."- M.H. / Google / Dec 26, 2020
