When faced with daily back pain caused by a herniated disc or spinal stenosis, it is difficult to work or relax. Patients living in New Jersey and the surrounding area are looking to have the cause of their back pain quickly diagnosed and resolved with minimal down time. Under the care of the Centers for Neurosurgery, Spine, and Orthopedics neurosurgeons, Hudson County-based patients can quickly resume a pain-free life after treatment.
Back pain is most often due to muscle strain, which can be easily resolved with rest. Physical therapy including stretching and strengthening exercises may be necessary if there is a muscle imbalance or muscle spasm. Trigger point injections, done in the office, often provide instant relief to a muscle spasm. Lumbar musculoskeletal pain can sometimes be relieved with stretching of the spine using a mechanical device. But if the root of back pain originates from pressure on a the nerve or the spinal cord itself, then in mild cases, an epidural injection will reduce the swelling of the nerve and resolve the pain. Severe cases of nerve impingement or spinal cord compression, however, will require a spine decompression surgery which may be just a minimally invasive same day procedure in a surgical center or hospital.
If the team of experts at Centers for Neurosurgery, Spine, and Orthopedics believe the ultimate cure can only be obtained by spinal decompression surgery, it will be recommended. If the patient wants to first try conservative management, the neurosurgeon will advise which type of conservative management would be safest to try given the patient’s medical condition, and inform the patient of the time-frame within which improvement should be experienced. CNSO will not insist a patient try conservative care, if there is no chance the patient will receive relief from conservative treatments. This would only leave the patient in pain for longer than necessary and risk further injury. Our neurosurgeons at CNSO, can complete a decompression surgery and have the patient home on the same day with minimal to no pain. Most of our patients are off all pain medications within one week after a spinal decompression surgery.
