Depending on the diagnosis, most back pain is treated initially with non-surgical options. These options range from hot or cold packs, exercise and medications to traction, braces, injections and alternative treatments (such as manipulation, acupuncture and TENS or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation). However, if these methods fail, or if you are in constant pain or if pain interferes with your ability to sleep or function normally during the day, then you may be a candidate for surgery.
The Spine Specialists of Atlanta Medical Center are available to diagnosis your condition and recommend the appropriate treatment. With board certified neurosurgeons, interventional radiologists, and pain management specialists, Atlanta Medical Center provides a complete range of surgical treatment options that include:
- Laser surgery
