Spine Surgeon/Back Doctor in Winter Garden

Back pain is a widespread medical problem that affects many Americans daily. Injuries, traumatic events, ailments, conditions, and other factors may contribute to the presence and severity of pain that many people experience. A certified and experienced orthopedic back doctor and spine surgeon can evaluate your pain and determine the best route to take for treatment. 

You may be thinking surgical procedures with a long recovery and rehabilitation time are your only option to relieve your pain. However, both non-surgical and minimally-invasive surgical procedures are available to resolve your pain. At the Orthopedic & Laser Spine Surgery Clinic, our Winter Garden patients can find relief with the proper treatment provided by our skilled healthcare team. 

What Is Back Pain?

Back pain can present itself in different ways. Some patients may experience mild and acute back pain episodes, while others may have severe and long-lasting pain. Generally, back injuries can occur at any time while moving, twisting your back, or performing daily activities. People often suffer injuries at work or exercising if they are not careful and practice good body mechanics. Keeping a good posture and stance is essential because it can prevent many injuries to the muscles, bones, nerves, and spine. 

Several conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis can wear down the spinal cord vertebrae and cause back pain. This can contribute to chronic back pain and ranges in severity if deterioration has already occurred. Different symptoms and ranges in severity are identified in back pain, whether in acute or chronic episodes. 

Signs and symptoms of back pain and injury:

  • Persistent pain in the neck, back, and spine 
  • Swelling, tenderness, or bruising in affected areas
  • Pain that radiates from the back to legs and other areas 
  • Weakness, numbness, and tingling in affected areas
  • Inability to move or loss of mobility while standing or walking
  • Pain with any movement, like twisting or bending of the back

Since back pain is widespread and can present itself differently depending on the condition or injury, it is essential to seek a back specialist who can help you find pain relief. Every patient needs a healthy back to perform daily activities and live a life without limitations caused by back pain and related medical problems. At our clinic, we are eager to help you learn the causes of your back pain, and our specialists can provide the resources you need to get treatment. 

What Is Causing My Back Pain?

Back pain can originate from many medical problems and different types of injuries, including traumatic events and accidents or pain associated with back conditions and ailments. Depending on your health history and several other factors, your back pain may result from a different range of conditions and causes. 

Common back conditions that cause back pain:

  • Arthritis 
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sciatica 
  • Herniated Discs
  • Radiculopathy 
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Many other conditions

Types of accidents and traumatic events leading to back pain:

  • Slip and Fall accidents 
  • Car accidents 
  • Construction site accidents 
  • Work injuries 
  • Injuries from overextending muscles 
  • Work injuries 
  • Many other events and accidents 

Regardless of the cause of your back pain, seeing your spine doctor should never be postponed or avoided. If you have injuries to the vertebrae, spinal column, back muscles, and nerves, your pain and injuries may worsen progressively without treatment. Our group of skilled orthopedic back surgeons at our clinic is available to get you evaluated and treated right away.  

When Should I See a Spine Doctor?

Seeking neck, back, and spine pain treatment is important because musculoskeletal conditions and injuries may worsen if not treated in the early stages. If you have been experiencing back pain, you may have wondered if it needs to be treated and when you should see a spine doctor. Even if you’ve experienced chronic pain or have suffered an acute injury, you may follow up with your back specialist. 

You should see a spine doctor when:

  • Neck, back, or spine pain persists over a few weeks 
  • Pain is severe and does not improve with rest, ice/heat therapy, and other treatments 
  • Pain radiates down to your legs 
  • There is numbness, tingling, weakness, or stiffness in affected areas
  • You have suffered an injury, fall, or accident 

At the Orthopedic & Laser Spine Surgery Clinic, our team of orthopedic specialists is eager to help our patients find the proper treatment for a pain-free life. You don’t have to continue living worried about further injuring your back or taking a risk by performing routine activities. No matter what your medical history looks like, our spine doctor can help you receive the proper treatment that aligns with your well-being. 

Treatment for Spine Conditions and Back Pain 

Different treatments for back pain and spine conditions include non-surgical and surgical solutions. Non-surgical treatments for back pain include medication such as epidural steroid injections, pain medication, physical therapy, back braces, and chiropractic spinal adjustments. When you have tried several methods to relieve pain with no improvement, your back specialist can evaluate your candidacy for a minimally invasive procedure at an Orthopedic and Laser Spine Surgery Clinic. 

Surgery may seem intimidating and frightening because of generally long recovery times and the need for rehabilitation. However, our spine surgeons specialize in minimally invasive solutions for pain in the neck, back, spine, and other body areas. Unlike traditional surgeries, laser surgery and minimally-invasive procedures offer many benefits that remove the risks of more invasive surgeries. With professionalism and experience, our healthcare team has successfully helped thousands of patients receive back pain relief. 

Benefits of Laser Spine Surgery:

  • Many different procedures available for pain-free results 
  • Smaller incisions and minimal scarring 
  • Decreased risk of complications

  • Reduced blood loss and lesser risk of infection
