Neck and back pain, in addition to being uncomfortable and exhausting, can also affect your quality of life. Daily activities, let alone favorite sports, can become difficult or even impossible to perform. An experienced neck and back specialist will not only provide an accurate diagnosis, but also the extensive background and training necessary to guide you through effective treatment options.
At EmergeOrtho—Triangle Region, our Spine Center offers comprehensive, patient-centered care to help those with neck and back pain to Emerge Stronger. Healthier. Better. Many of our board-certified orthopedic physicians are fellowship-trained, which has prepared them with the latest back, neck, and spine treatment approaches.
The spine is complex, housing interconnected vertebrae, intervertebral discs, ligaments, tendons, muscles, facet joints and nerves. Neck pain may occur from problems with supporting soft tissues such as the muscles, tendons and ligaments or from injuries to the bones and discs of the spine. However, soft-tissue injuries (such as sprains) are most common. Another frequent cause of neck pain is cervical disc and joint degeneration—the medical term for this is “spondylosis.” This condition describes general wear and tear—or osteoarthritis—often accompanied by bone spurs that form around the joints of the spine RC.
The causes of pain in the low back are similar to the neck. Simply moving, bending, or lifting the wrong way can trigger back pain and spasms. As people age, back pain becomes more common. Spondylosis, like the neck, can occur in the low back, typically first appearing after the age of 30.
Potential reasons for low back pain include:
Less frequent causes of back pain can result from a history of cancer, arterial disease, and other medical conditions.
While types of neck and back pain can be temporary, certain symptoms may indicate your pain will not go away on its own. If you experience any of the following, it is important to seek precision diagnosis and treatment from a professional neck and back specialist:
If you have any of the following symptoms, it is vital to seek immediate medical attention, as these can indicate a serious condition: dizziness, confusion, fever, lack of bowel/bladder control, and a loss of coordination.
At the EmergeOrtho—Triangle Region Spine Center, our physicians and spine surgeons establish personalized treatment plans, based on precision diagnosis. X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized axial tomography (CAT or CT) scans, and bone density tests, in addition to thorough physical examinations, enable your neck and spine specialist to determine an accurate diagnosis.
Once a spinal disorder has been identified, a personalized treatment plan can be implemented.
