Back Pain Specialist
A back specialist, or a physician who is especially experienced working with problems affecting the spine and surrounding muscles, can be a valuable partner in managing back pain and other issues. A large portion of people are negatively impacted by acute or chronic back pain during their lives, which impacts their work and leisure time alike. At Pain Care, we aim to help our patients in the Metro Atlanta, Georgia, area feel better so they can get back to doing what they love – and we achieve that goal with the help of our board-certified physicians.
A quick look at an MRI or X-ray image of the back will show that it’s a complex network that includes the densely packed structures of the spine and surrounding ligaments and muscles. So, when seeking help for back pain, a specialist is often needed simply to make a complete diagnosis and determine a course of treatment. Pain Care’s friendly and knowledgeable physicians work with patients to understand what’s wrong and what’s been done to treat the problem before.
Some of the conditions that a Pain Care back specialist can treat in our Atlanta, GA, clinics include:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Facet joint syndrome
- Herniated and ruptured discs
- Post laminectomy syndrome
- Spinal stenosis
For these conditions, our physicians often suggest that patients explore their conservative treatment options, such as medication and heat therapy, to help with symptoms. For people with more severe or ongoing conditions, our back specialist may recommend minimally invasive procedures, which our own physicians can provide, thereby ensuring a continuum of care all under one roof.
