Most people will encounter back pain at least once in their lives because age-related wear and tear can bring about complications to the spine. Aches and pains can develop from a multitude of factors including work-related injuries, personal injury or trauma, and degenerative disease. For the bulk of patients, the pain eventually wanes; but for others, the intense pain may linger for weeks or months. Depending on the specific condition causing the painful symptoms, acute neck and back pain can potentially incapacitate patients and even restrict body mobility.
Recognizing the exact source of pain and providing a diagnosis for spine-related back and neck pain isn’t always a straightforward process. Luckily for residents living in Bergen County, the nationally recognized doctors at New Jersey Spine Specialists are up to the challenge. Our award-winning team can accurately diagnose the source of pain and recommend proper care and treatment for patients looking to eliminate crippling back and neck pain.
Symptoms vary in each patient exhibiting fluctuating levels of discomfort and pain in the cervical, thoracic, lumbar spine and sacrum. Additional symptoms may include a combination of muscle weakness, numbness, tingling in the arms and legs, muscle spasms, and difficulty with balance, coordination, and fine motor skills. If you currently experience any of these symptoms, seek out an expert spine specialist for a thorough evaluation and comprehensive care.
The renowned surgeons at New Jersey Spine Specialists all hold extensive spinal fellowship training, allowing them to deliver an accurate diagnosis and prescribe an effective treatment regimen with the utmost compassion and empathy. Bergen County-based patients can rest easy when receiving care from Dr. Mitchell Reiter, Dr. Mark Drzala, and Dr. Heidi Hullinger who are all accredited and board-certified spine surgeons.
