Correct diagnosis is key to solving back pain problems. NSPC’s spine specialists in New York have the experience and the technology needed. Three major groups of tests are used in diagnosing and classifying the different types of back pain. Let’s examine all of them very briefly:
Proper back care, gentle stretching, and exercises along with non-surgical care are recommended first before seeking spine surgery—unless an emergency situation requires immediate procedures.
While most instances of back pain resolve themselves over time and with more conservative treatments, you may wonder if spine surgery is the right treatment for you. Certain mechanical conditions that cause back pain can usually be corrected by surgery such as a herniated or bulging discs, compressed spinal nerves, fractured vertebrae or instability in the spine— the experienced spine specialists at NSPC can provide the best diagnosis of your back pain and provide an individualized treatment plan.
