Our spine team is focused is on exhausting non-operative treatment to relieve your neck or back pain. If those efforts fail to provide relief, and surgery is indicated, we strive to offer less invasive, non-fusion, and/or motion-sparing options.
Conditions such as degenerative disc disease, herniated disks and spinal stenosis may respond to physical therapy and therapeutic injections to impose the health of the joints and the connective tissue. Conditions causing pressure on the discs and spine may respond well to spinal decompression. Medication can be used for minor pain conditions and infections. Exercise and physical therapy can be used to treat many types of spinal cord injuries, while medication and rest may be all that is needed for a minor injury.
