SPINE INJURY & PAIN OVERVIEW
Spinal injuries and disorders can be major life-changing events. Whether caused by a degenerative disorder, trauma, tumor or infection, spine conditions can drastically change the lives of patients and their families.
Sano’s Spine Specialists use both surgical and non-surgical treatments to help relieve pain and regain function.
Common Neck and Back Conditions and Spine Procedures
Back pain is one of the most common orthopedic conditions. Many cases of back pain will gradually go away on their own or improve after a short rest period. Understanding the symptoms and causes of back pain can help you understand when it is time to make an appointment
The cervical spine, aka the neck, connects the skull and the upper back. Neck pain occurs when neck vertebrae, ligaments, tendons, or muscles are diseased or injured. Recognizing your symptoms and their frequency and severity is the first step toward effective treatment.
Revision Spine Surgery
Revision spine surgery corrects chronic back pain resulting from previous spine surgery. Pending the individual, revision surgery may correct post-surgical pain and complications.
Cervical Disc Replacement
Cervical Disc Arthroplasty is a procedure that removes a damaged cervical disc and replaces it with an artificial disc device. A cervical disc replacement may be recommended to treat severe arthritis that does not respond to nonsurgical treatment.
Adult spinal deformity is a condition that causes changes in normal spinal alignment and curvature, which can result in pain and decreased spine function. Spinal deformities are not uncommon, especially in older demographics. When spinal deformities become progressive, chronic conditions that impact on quality of life and function, it may be time to seek orthopedic guidance.
A herniated disc occurs when the soft center of a vertebral disc pushes through the disc wall and into the spinal canal. The herniated disc pinches nearby nerve roots, resulting in pain, numbness, or weakness. While surgery is one treatment option for some people, surgery is not usually necessary to relieve the problem.
