When Should You Seek Medical Treatment for Neck or Back Pain?

Nothing is worse than trying to get through the day with constant neck or back pain. Many cases of pain can result from sore muscles or an odd sleeping position, but your aches and pains may persist past applying some ice and getting some rest. In this case, you may have a more serious issue to be concerned about. The following are signs that it is time to seek help from an experienced back and spine doctor:

  • Continuous pain: If your pain persists past a few weeks, you need to see a doctor. Continuous pain is often a sign that something more serious is causing this issue.
  • Numbness or tingling: If your pain is coupled with numbness, tingling, or a “pins-and-needles” feeling, you must seek medical attention as you may be suffering from nerve damage.
  • Injury: Any time you have neck or back pain resulting from an injury, it is best to go see a doctor to ensure nothing serious is causing the pain.
  • Pain shooting down your legs: This can result from nerve damage in your spine, and you should seek immediate medical attention if you find this happening to you.
  • Loss of control of bladder or bowels: This issue coupled with back pain often points to a severe issue like cauda equina syndrome, which should be treated by an experienced back and spine doctor as soon as possible.

Experiencing any of these symptoms should be cause for concern, and the best thing you can do for yourself is make an appointment with our experienced team of doctors to figure out what is causing it.

Minimally Invasive Surgical Treatment

If non-surgical treatment has not worked for you within the past six to twelve months, it may be time to explore some of the minimally invasive surgical procedures offered at our practice. Minimally invasive surgery is a great option that allows for a safe procedure that is quicker, has less risk, and offers a shorter recovery time than traditional surgery. This type of surgery can treat a wide range of back, neck, and spine conditions. The following are some of the types of procedures offered at Orthopedic & Laser Spine Surgery:

  • Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF)
  • Percutaneous carpal tunnel release
  • Axial fusion
