Spine Fracture Treatment

When dealing with a spine fracture, our adept team employs a multifaceted approach to facilitate your healing journey. Utilizing braces and orthotics, we aim to maintain spinal alignment and manage pain by minimizing movement during your healing process. Additionally, we offer a range of procedures, such as:

  • Fusion: A technique that joins two vertebrae using a bone graft, stabilized with plates, rods, or screws.
  • Vertebroplasty & Kyphoplasty: Procedures that involve manipulating the vertebrae and utilizing bone cement to provide stability and aid recovery.

Herniated Disc Diagnosis and Treatment

Diagnosing a herniated disc involves a blend of imaging and movement tests, ensuring a thorough understanding of the condition. While herniated discs often show improvement independently, persistent pain may be managed with:

  • Physical Therapy: Engaging in exercises and activities that aim to alleviate pain and improve mobility.
  • Epidural Injections: Administering medication directly into the epidural space to reduce inflammation and pain. In situations where conservative treatments are not effective, various surgical options are considered to provide relief and facilitate recovery.

Chronic Back Pain Diagnosis and Treatment

Our specialists employ a range of activities and tests, from basic movement assessments to advanced imaging, to diagnose the source of back pain accurately. Medication options span from muscle relaxants to steroid injections, and additional remedies might encompass:

  • Physical Therapy: Tailored exercises and activities designed to alleviate pain and enhance mobility.
  • Rest: Ensuring adequate rest and adopting positions that provide relief and support healing. In instances where conventional treatments do not provide adequate relief, surgery may be considered as a viable option.

Pinched Nerve Diagnosis and Treatment

In the diagnosis of a pinched nerve, various tests such as EMGs and MRIs may be utilized to gain a comprehensive understanding of the condition. Typically, pinched nerves can be managed effectively using conservative treatments like medication and physical therapy, ensuring a gentle yet thorough approach to your recovery.
