Pain Management Treatments for Back Problems
Back pain is one of the most common and most painful conditions we treat at Lederman Kwartowitz Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine in West Bloomfield and Farmington Hills, Michigan. Back pain is hard to target because the spine is very sensitive; treating pain in one area may cause pain to arise in another area. The delicate network of nerves, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bone make back pain a highly specialized area of orthopedics.
Dr. Lederman, Dr. Kwartowitz, and Dr. O'Keefe have the knowledge to evaluate your back pain and recommend a treatment plan. For most patients, a combination of surgery, physical therapy, and pain management treatments work well to restore the alignment of your spine and get the pain under control.
Our doctors see and treat these common back problems:
- Low back pain
- Bulging, herniated or slipped discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis (pinched nerves)
- Joint diseases
- Spine injuries
- Sprains, strains, muscle spasms, stiffness, and postural pain
Our physical therapists can provide post-surgical rehabilitation for spine procedures, which is an essential component for a successful recovery after back surgery. For more spine conditions we treat, please visit our interactive patient education center.
