Back Pain Treatment Available From Orthopedic Spine Experts Serving Residents of Freehold, NJ & Surrounding Communities
Back pain is one of the most common reasons why people from the Freehold, NJ, area seek treatment from the spine experts at Spine Care New Jersey. Offering a comprehensive range of conservative and surgical options for addressing all types of spinal discomfort, our board-certified, fellowship-trained spine surgeons and other medical professionals focus exclusively on treating conditions affecting the spine. Our physicians also collaborate with our pain management specialist, who is double board-certified in interventional pain management and rehabilitation.
Back pain can stem from a variety of underlying causes. For instance:
- The core muscles that support the spine can become strained from overuse.
- A vertebral fracture can result from a direct blow to the spine.
- A ruptured disc (herniated disc) can occur if small tears form in the firm outer wall of a spinal disc, allowing some of the disc’s inner gel-like material to seep out and pressure sensitive nerve tissue.
- Degenerative changes can take place in the spine as a result of the natural aging process.
The orthopedic spine surgeons at Spine Care New Jersey are skilled and experienced in performing highly complex surgical procedures designed to relieve severe or chronic back pain. However, we are committed to treating our patients as conservatively as possible. This means that we will first recommend any nonsurgical alternatives that we determine are appropriate, such as physical therapy. To provide fully customized treatment, our spine specialists work closely with our physical therapists, who are available onsite at our main office in Freehold, NJ. Our goal is to identify the source of a patient’s back pain, and then provide an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plan designed to alleviate discomfort and improve function.
In general, if a patient’s back pain persists or worsens after several weeks of conservative treatment, we may recommend surgery. In some cases, the skilled spine surgeons at Spine Care New Jersey can operate on the spine using advanced, minimally invasive techniques, which generally allow for faster recoveries without the risks typically associated with traditional spine surgery.
