The lifetime prevalence of spinal pain has been reported as ranging between 54% to 80%. As the human body ages, aches and pains can develop and can stem from a variety of factors including work-related injuries, personal injury or trauma, degenerative spine conditions, and deformity. In the majority of patients, the pain often subsides, however in some patients, the pain persists and becomes chronic. Depending on the condition and associated symptoms, neck and back pain can often be debilitating and even limit function and mobility. Some individuals are forced to compromise their quality of life and seek treatment as a result of their impairment. Identifying the exact source of pain and providing a diagnosis for spine-related pain can be challenging. Fortunately for residents of Morris County, the dedicated team of award-winning doctors at New Jersey Spine Specialists is available to accurately diagnose and provide the proper care and treatment to patients seeking pain relief and the opportunity to improve their quality of life and overall health.
Symptoms vary in each individual, who can exhibit varying levels of discomfort and pain in the cervical, thoracic, lumbar spine and sacrum. Additional symptoms include 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 a NJ spine surgeon for a thorough evaluation and for proper care.
