Back pain is one of the most widespread health problems, affecting four out of five Americans in their lifetime. The spine is an interdependent system of 33 vertebrae, more than 100 joints, 120 muscles, 23 discs, and more than 220 ligaments. When something goes wrong within this system, the hundreds of nerve fibers and countess nerve endings can generate debilitating pain.
OrthoAtlanta spine specialists diagnose back and neck problems and develop custom treatment plans built on a conservative, non-surgical approach.
Conservative care approaches may help you avoid spine surgery.
OrthoAtlanta spine care professionals, including orthopedic spine surgeons and physiatrists, diagnose the full spectrum of back and neck problems and design custom neck and back treatment plans built on a non-surgical approach. We leverage conservative methods such as guided injections, specialized physical therapy, biofeedback, exercise, activity modification, and medication.
A great many spine patients are successfully treated with conservative therapies that do not involve surgery. In the few cases where conservative care is no longer managing your symptoms, OrthoAtlanta fellowship-trained spine surgeons provide consultation and discuss appropriate surgical options.
