Chronic back pain and spinal ailments can have any number of causes. Sometimes continuous pain is the result of disc degeneration, which, if left untreated, could turn into more serious disc herniation or sciatica. Lower back pain is often the result of lumbar stenosis, a condition common in older patients and also treatable. Often inflammation or infection can damage your spinal cord, causing severe pain. Whatever your condition, do not ignore it and hope that it will just go away. Chances are it will get worse over time.
Fortunately, the surgeons at Jersey Spine can help. We perform both simple and complex surgeries, from anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) to lumbar discectomy and several other types of back surgeries. Many of these require small incisions and allow damaged discs to be replaced with tissue fusion for long-lasting stability. If need be, we can correct a back surgery from the past that failed. To learn more about the types of treatments we perform, see our Spinal Procedures page.
If you are suffering from chronic upper or lower back pain and are searching for Northfield NJ spinal surgeons, don’t wait. You can be treated. Contact our Linwood office today to set up an appointment, and let the professionals at Jersey Spine help you get back to your pain-free life.
