Back pain can make everyday life unbearable. A back injury of any kind can prove debilitating, but the good news is that back pain can be effectively treated and relieved. The first step is visiting a physician who specializes in orthopedic spine care and treatments for back pain.
Our back and spinal specialists can provide you with the treatment options you need for symptom relief. Our surgeons provide our patients with an accurate diagnosis and the care they need to regain functionality, whether that involves surgery for the back or spine or nonsurgical treatment options for pain and other symptoms.
The first step to gaining back pain relief is meeting with a physician who can perform a full health evaluation. This may entail an examination and/or imaging, such as X-rays or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Your doctor will use this data to determine what’s causing your back pain before discussing some of the treatment methods that can restore your health.
Our back and spine specialists see patients with a wide range of conditions, including:
- Chronic pain, including spine pain
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated discs (lumbar and cervical)
- Nerve damage
- Recurring spasm
- Spinal cord injury
- Spinal deformity
- Spinal fractures
- Spinal stenosis
After diagnosis, your doctor will talk with you about the available forms of back treatments. Whenever possible, our doctors and surgeons avoid surgery. Sometimes, back or spine pain can be treated through physical therapy, medicine, steroid injections, or even the use of a brace.
In some cases, however, spine surgery may be required. Your surgeon can talk with you about the specifics of the procedure and answer any questions you may have about the process. Your surgery will depend on your unique back or spinal condition, and our spine specialists always strive to use the least invasive techniques in spinal surgery.
