Pinched Nerve Pain Treatment
Pinched nerve treatment is often complicated, in part because no one thing causes the compression of a nerve. Rather, a pinched nerve can result from many underlying causes. It can also lead to a number of symptoms some of which may be experienced elsewhere in the body than where the nerve is compressed. With the need for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment, people in the Metro Atlanta, Georgia, area who have been diagnosed with a pinched nerve or believe that they have one can turn to Pain Care. Our physicians specialize in pain management and can help patients understand their condition and address its symptoms, so they can get back to their lives.
The board-certified physicians at Pain Care know that a key part of pinched nerve treatment is determining what caused the issue in the first place, as this will guide us in recommending treatment options. For example, a compressed nerve in the spine might be caused by a herniated disc, a bone spur, or the narrowing of the spinal canal. With our physicians’ experience and our imaging capabilities, we can help identify the cause, and, using our personalized approach to health care, we can develop a pinched nerve treatment plan that accounts for each patient’s medical needs and lifestyle goals.
Some of the pain management techniques that we often recommend for our Atlanta, GA, area patients include:
- Physical therapy
- Surgical procedures
When it comes to surgical intervention, our physicians are capable of completing several types of minimally invasive, outpatient procedures to address the underlying causes of a pinched nerve. This gives our patients significant results without the need for an extensive and often very invasive surgery on the neck or back.
