Spine pain involves the nerves sending signals to the brain and in some cases, pain may be beneficial. But, when injury occurs or if inflammation is present, those pain signals may be continuous and ongoing. At this point, we begin to experience chronic pain and it can certainly affect our quality of life. Many people in the Fort Worth have such a problem, as it is one of the more common complaints people have.
In many cases, a spine surgeon is not going to recommend surgery until it is absolutely necessary. Nonsurgical treatments may be offered, including chiropractic, physical therapy, hot and cold treatments or perhaps spinal injections. These are preferred because it does not involve any type of surgery. Sometimes, the spine doctor might even recommend a number of different treatments to see what helps before a final decision is made.
If surgery is recommended, we will only use a noninvasive procedure. It will still be able to correct the problem you are experiencing but it will do so with fewer issues involved. In fact, if you look into the benefits of using a noninvasive surgical procedure, you would always request that it be done for you if surgery is needed. Many of the operations that affect the spine can be done in a noninvasive manner. There are also many other types of procedures that are noninvasive as well. It always pays to look for the safer alternative when talking with a doctor.
