Generally, minimally invasive surgery is reserved for people with crippling pain that hinder everyday activities such as walking, standing, or sitting. If you’ve tried several different conservative treatments and your pain persists, then this may indicate that you’re a good candidate for one of our procedures. Typically, pain is considered chronic if it meets the following conditions:
However, these are all subjective variables that depend on factors like your age, type of injury, source of pain, location of pain, lifestyle, health, and more. Regardless, you must tackle the issue head-on before it gets worse. Seek assistance from a spinal care specialist at NJ Spine & Orthopedic to help get your life back.
Back pain is a common problem and can make activities such as biking less enjoyable. Pain throughout the neck and back is caused by your spine. A pinched nerve or bulging disc, for example, can cause back and neck pain as well as numbness.
Many spinal conditions, however, are treatable through minimally invasive spinal surgery. An endoscopic discectomy, for instance, can remove your damaged disc and relieve your chronic pain immediately. Laser spine surgery is another procedure that’s minimally invasive and treats herniated or bulging discs.
Spinal surgery is an effective treatment for neck and back pain, especially when conservative treatments, such as physical therapy and medications, are ineffective. If you are unable to relieve your chronic pain through these treatments, spinal surgery may be a viable option for lessening your pain and discomfort.
Determining the root cause of a person’s upper back pain can be difficult. To truly understand what is causing your upper back pain, it is best that you seek the help of an experienced back and spine doctor. However, there are habits you can partake in to help alleviate the pain you are suffering from. Some of the best daily habits to alleviate your upper back pain include:
If you are someone who sleeps flat on your back, you are putting pressure on your spine each night when you sleep, which can cause pain. By putting a pillow under your knees to elevate your legs at night, you can alleviate some of the pain you are experiencing in your upper back.
Exercise is one of the most beneficial habits you can maintain to reduce pain in your back. By incorporating a routine that strengthens your core, you can reduce your risk of developing back pain or injuries.
These two vitamins play a crucial role in building strong bones, which in turn helps to alleviate and prevent back pain. Calcium can be found in milk, yogurt, and leafy greens. Vitamin D can be found in cheese, egg yolks, and fatty fish. You can also take vitamin supplements.
Make sure you are wearing shoes that have low heels and are comfortable. When you wear a more comfortable shoe, you can greatly reduce any strain on your back.
Having bad posture will put a strain on your entire back. By ensuring that you are standing straight, you can alleviate some of the pain you may be experiencing.
To help reduce pain in your upper back, you should reduce any occasions where you may have to pick up or carry a heavy load.
If you are sitting, standing, or lying down in one place for too long, you may be putting a strain on a part of your back which can result in pain. To alleviate that pain, make sure to partake in a stretching routine daily.

To determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure, our spine surgeons will need to evaluate your condition. Another good MISS candidate is someone who suffers severe pain from a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis. They are likely to be treated with minimally invasive spine surgery.
Patients who undergo a minimally invasive spine surgery are likely to recover faster than those who undergo open spine surgery. The recovery period will vary for each patient. However, most patients on average will recover within 6 weeks after the procedure.
A few conditions that can be treated with a minimally invasive spine surgery are herniated disc, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, sciatica, and more. Contact our spine surgeons and see if your condition qualifies for minimally invasive spine surgery.
