At Spine Care New Jersey, we understand that spinal injuries and conditions can be life-changing events. To help our patients get back to the activities they enjoy as quickly and safely as possible, our outstanding team offers a number of therapies designed to address degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis of the spine (spondylosis), facet joint syndrome, spinal instability, scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, and more.
In addition to offering individuals in Freehold, NJ, and nearby communities a full range of conservative treatments for spinal degeneration and trauma, we address issues in the spine using innovative surgical treatments. Our surgeons have the skills and experience necessary to perform a number of traditional and advanced minimally invasive spinal surgery techniques, including disc replacement, foraminotomy, laminectomy, laminoplasty, microdiscectomy, kyphoplasty, and spinal fusion. We pride ourselves on offering exceptional service, extensive medical expertise, and close doctor-patient relationships, all of which contribute to the healing process.
Spinal stenosis, or narrowing of the spinal canal, often accompanies the natural aging process. Common degenerative changes in the spine, such as a bulging disc, herniated disc, bone spur or inflamed ligament, can cause the space within the spinal canal to become constricted. In general, this condition does not require treatment unless it places pressure on sensitive nerve tissue, which can create localized and radiating pain, numbness, tingling, and muscle weakness. Symptoms like these can travel from the neck through the arms (cervical radiculopathy), or from the lower back to the legs (lumbar radiculopathy).
Even when stenosis causes symptoms, most patients are able to delay or completely avoid the need for spinal stenosis surgery by using a customized regimen of conservative treatments. For instance, at Spine Care New Jersey, we generally recommend that a patient try physical therapy, medications, or injections before considering surgery for spinal stenosis, such as lumbar stenosis surgery to address sciatica. Our spine experts work closely with our pain management specialists to develop an individualized treatment plan for each patient.
If you live in Freehold, NJ, or a nearby area and are experiencing any type of neck or back pain, call Spine Care New Jersey to set up a consultation with a spine specialist. We accept most health insurance plans and are often able to schedule same-day appointments.
