Determining if Spinal Surgery is Right for You

In order to develop a customized treatment plan, we must first find the source of your pain. Our providers will conduct a thorough medical exam and order testing and/or imaging. These tests are critical in making an accurate diagnosis and determining if surgery is indicated or not. 

Tests may include:

  • X-Ray

  • MRI Scan or Magnetic Resonance Imaging

  • Bone Scan

  • Spinal Tap

  • Complete lab-based tests

  • Discogram

  • Facet Joint Block

How Can Physical Therapy Help?

Physical therapy is an essential component of healing from spinal injuries and disorders. We may recommend physical therapy before exploring surgical options. 

When surgery is necessary, physical therapy is crucial healing, as it helps you regain flexibility and range of motion after the procedure. We collaborate with local physical therapists to help you maximize the outcome of your procedure. 

What About Steroid Injections?

Surgery is rarely the first step in treating spinal problems, and we like to start with less invasive options when possible. Steroid injections in the spine are just one example of a less-invasive treatment option that can help reduce pain and promote healing.
