Surgical & Nonsurgical Options for a Pain-free Life
Anterior cervical discectomy with fusion is a surgical procedure to reduce pressure on the spinal nerves and/or the spinal cord due to compression from a herniated disc in the neck. This can cause pain in the neck and arms as well as weakness and paralysis.
Artificial cervical disc replacement is a spine surgery to replace a degenerated (deteriorated) disc in the neck with an artificial disc. Disc degeneration reduces the height of the disc and may cause a herniated disc.
An artificial disc replacement surgery is a spine surgery in which an artificial disc is used to replace a damaged intervertebral disc. Intervertebral discs provide cushioning between the vertebrae.
Balloon kyphoplasty is a spine surgery that relieves back pain caused by a vertebral compression fracture. Osteoporosis (bone disease) is the primary cause of vertebral compression fractures.
Invasive percutaneous spine surgery employs minimally-invasive technique to treat pain caused by a variety of spine conditions. Spine surgery is traditionally performed through an open method which requires cutting.
The lower back or lumbar region is often the site of pain due to its high mobility and weight bearing. Spongy discs present between the vertebral bones of the spine help cushion the spine during stress and movement.
The lower back or lumbar region is often the site of pain due to its high mobility and weight bearing. Spongy discs present between the vertebral bones help cushion the spine during stress and movement.
The spine is surrounded and protected by vertebral bones stacked one on top of the other. Adjacent vertebrae articulate with each other at small joints called facet joints, which are present in pairs at the back of each vertebra.
The spine is surrounded and protected by vertebral bones stacked one on top of the other. Between adjacent vertebrae are spaces called neural foramen through which spinal nerves pass to communicate with the rest of the body.
Lumbar spinal fusion is a surgical procedure to join two or more adjacent vertebrae in the lumbar or lower back region in order to stabilize the spine and relieve pain.
Spinal cord stimulation is a technique used to relieve chronic back or leg pain. This is achieved by directing electrical impulses to particular regions of the spine to interrupt pain signals before they reach the brain.
Strengthening the muscles that support the back helps dissipate stress on the joints of the spine and prevent injury. Losing weight takes stress off the joints, which can also reduce and prevent back pain.
Pain can have different causes. Mechanical back or neck pain results from damage to the structures of the spine. These include the vertebral bones, intervertebral joints and discs, ligaments, muscles and nerves.
An epidural steroid injection is a non-surgical treatment recommended for back pain caused by degenerative conditions of the spine and compression of spinal nerves.
Facet joints are the joints located between adjacent vertebral bones of the spine. They are paired joints that provide stability to the vertebral column.
Morphine is a strong analgesic medication used to treat severe pain. It may be administered through a delivery system called a pain pump to treat severe back pain and related symptoms.
