CONDITIONS for SPINE
It is estimated that up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some time in their lives. (Rubin Dl. Epidemiology and Risk Factors for Spine Pain. Neurol Clin. 2007; May;25(2):353-71) The best strategy for avoiding back issues is to have a healthy back. Here are some tips for a healthy back.
Fortunately, many conditions can be treated non- surgically by a orthopedic spine specialist. Spine surgeons work with international pain management specialized anesthesiologists as well as Physiatrists, the practitioners of physical medicine and rehabilitation, to reduce the expression of symptoms with oral medications, injectable medications, and lifestyle modifications. Many spine issues can be resolved with these conservative measures so the majority of spine issues start with these treatments as well as x-rays, EMG, and MRI if warranted; some symptoms are more serious than others and may advance a patient beyond conservative treatment without trying them first. If symptoms specifically indicate a need for surgical intervention, or conservative treatments fail to provide enough relief than surgery may then be considered and will be discussed.
