Back Pain Treatment Options for Residents of Monroe Township, NJ
Recent studies suggest that back pain treatment will be sought by the majority of people – up to 80 percent – at some point during their lives. Because it can stem from many causes, including strained muscles, age-related degeneration, traumatic injuries, and repetitive stress, the key to finding effective relief for back pain is identifying the true source of the problem through an accurate diagnosis.
The experienced spine experts at Spine Care New Jersey in Monroe Township, NJ, provide comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for all types of back pain, which can take many forms. While some people experience sharp, isolated twinges when they make certain movements, others have a constant, dull ache. The exact nature of the discomfort will depend on which spinal tissues are affected.
You may want to consult with a physician at Spine Care New Jersey in Monroe Township, New Jersey, if you are bothered by any of the following types of back pain and related symptoms:
- Shooting pains that radiate from your lower back down through your legs
- Numbness or tingling sensations in your arms or legs
- Muscle weakness in your extremities
- A stiff neck or back when you wake up every morning
- Spinal discomfort that intensifies when you sit for a prolonged period of time or stand up from a seated position
- Bladder or bowel problems (very serious and rare)
When necessary to address the source of very severe pain, the spine surgeons at Spine Care New Jersey can perform highly complex surgical procedures, including minimally invasive spine surgery. But, because our goal is to treat our patients as conservatively and effectively as possible, we will typically begin by recommending one or more nonsurgical options, as appropriate. For instance, physical therapy can be highly effective for relieving back pain, and our spine specialists work closely with our physical therapists, who are available onsite, to develop effective treatment plans designed to alleviate spinal discomfort and enhance function.
