Spine Care Q & A

What is Spine Care?

Your spine is a complex system made up of bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and nerves. Due to its complexity and number of components, your spine requires special attention and care from trained experts like the spine specialists at Wellington Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine.

When you come in for spine care, your specialist completes a thorough evaluation and goes over the nature of your condition. You will work together on a treatment plan to improve your spine health and function and reduce your pain.

What are Nonsurgical Spine Care Treatments?

In most cases, your spine specialist can get you the relief you need from your neck or back pain with conservative treatments. Common treatments include:

  • Medication
  • Bracing
  • Exercise therapy
  • Interventional Pain Injections
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Facet injections
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Spinal Cord stimulators
  • Regenerative Medicine Procedures - Stem cells/ PRP

The spine specialists at Wellington Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine also offer interventional pain management to help manage or identify your pain. Your specialist may recommend:

  • Caudal Epidural Steroid Injection: During a caudal epidural steroid injection, medication is injected into the lowest part of your epidural space to treat low back pain or sciatica.
  • Facet Joint Injection: During a facet joint injection, a steroid and numbing agent are injected into your facet joint. The technique may help identify the exact source of your pain or provide pain relief.
  • Fascia Iliaca Block: The fascia iliaca block is used to help reduce hip pain by injecting a local anesthetic into your femoral nerve.

The spine experts also offer the celiac plexus block, which is an injection aimed at reducing abdominal pain caused by cancer or pancreatitis.

What are Surgical Treatments for Spine Care?

The spine specialists at Wellington Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine optimize your non-surgical care. For those needing spine surgery, we work with some of the best spine surgeons in the area and can make the necessary arrangements if you need a consultation.

While they don’t perform spine surgery, the specialists at Wellington do offer more invasive options to help manage pain, including:

  • Radiofrequency Neurotomy of the Lumbar Facet: The radiofrequency neurotomy of the lumbar facet uses radio waves to target specific nerves in your lumbar area to turn them off so they stop sending pain signals.
  • Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant: A spinal cord stimulator implant is a device that helps control back pain with a low-voltage electric current.

Your spine is a complex system that requires expert care. Call Wellington Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine or schedule a consultation online today.
