Atlanta Chronic Back Pain Specialists
Neck and back pain affects many people at various times during their lives, sometimes to the point that it prevents them from completing their daily tasks. In most cases, this pain can be effectively managed if it is properly diagnosed. Pain Care provides the one-on-one attention necessary for our patients to achieve meaningful relief from spinal discomfort. Residents of Atlanta, Georgia, and other communities throughout the surrounding area can rely on our highly qualified, specialized physicians to address not only their symptoms but also the underlying conditions that are causing their aches and pains. We can investigate an individual’s neck or back pain, make an accurate diagnosis, and recommend a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs.
Neck and back pain can result from any number of conditions, including acute muscle strains and chronic spinal conditions such as degenerative disc disease, facet joint syndrome, or herniated discs. Whatever the cause, proper diagnosis and prompt treatment are necessities. In addition to non-invasive methods like medication, Pain Care offers a number of minimally invasive procedures that can address underlying conditions of neck and back pain, including:
- Radiofrequency neurotomy – This process involves carefully applying heat to an inflamed nerve within a facet joint to relieve pain.
- Spinal cord stimulation – This procedure involves the placement of a small implant that will send electrical pulses along the spine to help block nerve pain signals from reaching the brain.
- Kyphoplasty – This procedure is used to repair a compression fracture within a vertebrae, thereby helping the spine to regain its previous shape. It is performed by expanding the collapsed bone with a small balloon and injecting bone cement into the space created to help restabilize the bone.
