SpineCare Long Island

 

SpineCare Long Island is a multi-disciplinary spine center that combines the expertise of board-certified neurosurgeons and interventional pain management specialists. The spine center helps those with back pain and neck pain explore non-surgical treatment options. If spine surgery is necessary, because of a herniated disc or spinal fracture, the spine surgeons emphasize minimally invasive spine techniques and instrumentation that greatly reduces the length of the incision, lessens time in the hospital and provides a faster recovery with less discomfort.

 

SpineCare Long Island was founded in 2017 by Dr. Kevin Mullins, Dr. Salvatore Zavarella and Dr. Amit Sharma who believed spine care could be improved with a spine center approach that combined the expertise of non-surgical MDs and spine surgeons who would collaborate for the benefit of the person with back or neck pain. The spine center has affiliate spine therapists that work closely with the physicians to provide customized home exercise programs that make the back and neck stronger, more flexible and resistant to future strain.

Did the pain come on after lifting, or after aggressive exercise or sports activity?

Lifting or sports activities can strain muscles, ligaments & tendons, causing painful spasms. Extreme pain can require a spine specialist. Home remedies include anti-inflammatories like Advil/Nuprin, rest, ice and some simple stretching exercises. However, if symptoms don’t improve over 3 days, you need to be assessed by a spine specialist.

Is the pain mostly in your low back, AND accompanied by a FEVER, or making you sick?

Pain in the low back, along with a fever, could be a kidney infection. You should see a spine specialist immediately.

Call our office IMMEDIATELY
833-774-6333

Back or neck pain that doesn’t radiate pain or numbness into a leg or arm can be caused by a variety of problems, including a strain of the muscles or ligaments in the back or neck.

Home remedies include anti-inflammatories like aspirin, Advil or Nuprin, rest, ice and some simple back/neck exercises. Don’t do any exercise that causes an increase in pain.

If pain persists you may need to see a spine specialist. Call our office at 833-774-6333 to request an appointment.

Remember: Those who self diagnose themselves and self treat themselves do so at their own risk. Back and neck pain can arise from a variety of causes and may require a spine specialist to perform diagnostic tests to identify your problem and the best treatment. A spine specialized therapist can also create a home exercise program customized for you.

Non-surgical Treatment Options

While you may be able to use watchful waiting for simple back or neck pain, other symptoms like numbness or weakness in a leg or arm need to be seen within 48 hours by a spine specialist.

Pain Management

Understanding Symptoms

Pain is not a good indicator of when to see a doctor for a spine problem. While a back spasm can be excruciating, the good news is that ligament strain doesn’t require surgery.
