If your struggle with back or neck pain has become too big an obstacle in your life, NJ Spine & Orthopedic has solutions to get you back on track. Many patients who are struggling with pain and discomfort want to seek help but are not interested in risky or highly intrusive procedures. This is why our team of orthopedic specialists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons provide traditional healing methods and minimally invasive techniques to treat the sources of back pain.
Whatever may be causing your discomfort, our patient-centric approach means we’ll work with you hand in hand to identify the root causes and outline a plan of treatment that suits your needs.
Common Causes of Back Pain
While back pain can go away on its own in a few weeks, long-term symptoms are usually indicative of some greater underlying problem. When the delicate relationships between the bones, ligaments, and nerves within the spine are thrown out of balance, it can cause serious discomfort and chronic pain. Some of the most common root issues are:
- Muscle strain
- Pinched nerves
- Torn ligaments
- Herniated, ruptured or bulging discs
Identifying the issues causing your back pain is the first step to recovery, which is why we offer free services like the free Pain Assessment Tool to get you started on the right track. If you already have MRI scans on hand, we will review them for free to get a jump start on your treatment and find the best options moving forward.
Minimally Invasive Solutions
Our goal is to provide long-lasting results without risky and invasive procedures, and we offer the most effective treatments within those guidelines. After we’ve found the source of your symptoms, our team of experts will have a range of solutions to get you back up and moving.
- Laser spine surgery
- Pressure point injections
- Endoscopic discectomy
- Minimally invasive spinal fusion
Our full catalog of treatments is available here, and we strive to bring our patients a broad range of options. Not every case requires surgery, and from simple fixes to more comprehensive treatments, NJ Spine & Orthopedic has it all.
When to Seek Medical Help for Your Back Pain
While simple lifestyle changes like light exercise, proper posture, and massage can help manage your symptoms, there comes a time when professional help is needed. If you have been suffering chronic pain or develop side effects, it is important to ensure that you don’t have any degenerative conditions.
- Chronic pain: Acute back pain can last as long as 3 weeks, but if your symptoms have persisted for several months, it could be a sign that there are underlying causes that need treatment
- Discomfort in extremities: Shooting pain, numbness, or heaviness in your arms or legs are common symptoms of nerve or disc problems and are clear signs of untreated back conditions
- High fever: Fevers can be caused by any number of issues, but temperatures over 100 degrees in conjunction with persistent back pain could be a sign of spinal infection
