How we can help you

Spine injuries can occur due to a variety of reasons, such as sports injuries, car accidents, or falls. Depending on the severity of the injury, a spine injury can lead to a range of symptoms, including chronic back pain, loss of mobility, or even paralysis. In such cases, it is essential to seek medical help immediately.

The treatment for spine injuries varies depending on the severity and nature of the injury. For minor injuries, non-surgical treatment options such as physical therapy, pain management, and anti-inflammatory medications may be recommended. In severe cases, surgical intervention may be necessary. One of the most common spine surgeries is called spinal fusion, which involves the joining of two or more vertebrae to stabilize the spine and reduce pain. Another procedure is discectomy, which is the removal of a herniated disc in the spine to alleviate nerve pressure and reduce pain.

Spine injuries are a common and serious health issue that can lead to a range of complications. However, with proper medical attention and timely intervention, it is possible to manage and treat spine injuries effectively. If you experience any back pain or other symptoms related to spine injuries, make sure to seek medical help immediately to ensure a quick recovery. Contact one of our spine specialists.

Epidural steroid injections, commonly referred to as ESI, are a highly effective treatment option for those suffering from chronic back or neck pain. This type of injection involves the introduction of a corticosteroid medication into the epidural space, which is located just outside the protective covering of the spinal cord.

Spondylosis is the medical term for a group of disorders that affect the spinal column. It is a condition characterized by the gradual wear and tear of the bones, cartilage, and discs in the spine, which leads to the formation of bony growths or spurs. These spurs can put pressure on the nerves, causing pain, numbness, or tingling in the arms and legs.

Herniated discs are another condition that can cause severe spinal pain. This occurs when the inner layer of a spinal disc bulges out, pressing on nearby nerves and causing pain and weakness in the affected area.

Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine that can occur in both children and adults. It can cause pain and difficulty breathing in severe cases and may require surgical intervention to correct.
Spinal stenosis occurs when the spinal canal narrows, putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. This can cause pain, weakness and numbness in the affected area and can be caused by a range of factors, including arthritis, bone spurs, or injuries.
