If you’re living with intense back pain, you aren’t alone. Many Americans will report instances of back pain at least once in their lives as a result of age-related wear and tear to the spine. A myriad of factors, including work-related injuries, personal injury or trauma, and degenerative disease, may determine whether or not a patient will develop back-related issues. For the majority of patients, the pain will slowly resolve without the need for medical attention; but for others, the intense pain may linger for weeks or months. Depending on the precise condition encroaching the spine, acute neck and back pain may develop, which can eventually restrict body mobility when left untreated.
Pinpointing the source of pain for an accurate diagnosis can jumpstart a patient’s journey to recovery. For patients living throughout Essex County, the nationally recognized doctors at New Jersey Spine Specialists treat a high volume of complex spinal problems with maximized outcomes. 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.
