    "Dr. Mullins is a consummate professional who takes the time to understand your problem and comprehensively explains the options. In my case, lower back surgery made the most sense. Dr. Mullins did a great job, not only with the procedure but setting expectations for the recovery. I would give Dr. Mullins my highest recommendation!"

    "Dr. Zavarella and his staff are kind, caring, and considerate. I have been suffering with severe spinal stenosis and numbness in both legs prior to seeing Dr. Zaverella. He performed a surgical procedure on me, he explained everything to me and my spouse in great detail. Post surgery I was able to stand and walk without any numbness at all! I was able to go home the same day!"

    "I am months out of surgery and have absolutely no numbness at all! He is an unbelievable surgeon, with an excellent bedside manner! I highly recommend Dr. Zavarella and his staff!"

    "Dr. Ryan is an excellent and caring surgeon. He explains everything he sees in detail that us layman can understand. He did not suggest surgery until all non-invasive treatments were tried. He performed a four level ACDF procedure on me four months ago and the results are amazing. After suffering from years of headaches, arm pain, dizziness and gait problems they are gone. He laid out a recovery plan that has worked and I feel great. Thank you Dr. Ryan!"

    "I sought help with a tethered cord when I was struggling to even walk. Dr Latefi was very kind, friendly, & reassuring. He answered all my questions and was on top of the latest surgical interventions/options for my diagnosis. Even after surgery he made himself very available to me via phone call night or day. I very much appreciated his help. He's wonderful!"

    "Dr. Amrit Chiluwal is not only a great professional, he is also a great human being who cares about the recovery of his patients, as he did in my case after brain surgery due to a large tumor. My family and I will be forever grateful for this second chance at life, thanks to Dr. Chiluwal I can share with my loved ones."

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.

However, if symptoms don’t improve over 3 days, you need to be assessed by a spine specialist.

Call our office IMMEDIATELY

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.

Surgical Treatment Options

The good news is that 80% of back and neck pain gets better on its own over time. Only a small percentage of patients will ever need spine surgery. Isn’t that a relief? Learn about non-surgical treatment options.
