Neck and Back Pain Treatment
What could be more physically inhibiting than severe neck and back pain? At Orthopaedic Surgical Consultants in Crown Point, Indiana, we apply the latest techniques and technologies to effectively treat a wide range of painful neck, spine, and lower back conditions, including:
Neck & Back Pain Conditions
- Arthritis of the spine
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated disc
- Post spine surgery
- Spinal stenosis
- Spondylolisthesis (slipped vertebrae)
- Spondylolysis (stress fracture of the spine)
- Sports-related injuries
Our comprehensive approach to alleviating neck and back pain begins with a thorough evaluation so that any impairments or functional limitations can be analyzed and addressed. Focusing on each patient’s individual needs and rehabilitative goals, we utilize a combination of techniques, including:
- Spinal mobilization to reduce pain and improve alignment and mobility
- Physical therapy
- Massage and relaxation techniques
- Upper body postural modification
- Soft tissue and muscle lengthening techniques
Neck pain can often be relieved with nonsurgical methods such as cervical epidural steroid injections or cervical selective nerve root blocks. Chronic neck or back pain, however, may require spine surgery, particularly if it is caused by a degenerative disease or herniated disc.
