Spine Treatments

New Jersey Back Pain Relief

In addition to our comprehensive spinal surgery treatments, we also offers non-surgical treatments for back and spinal pain. Our team of world-class orthopedic and neurosurgical specialists work one-on-one with patients to create a personalized treatment plan focused on their long-term health goals and recovery. If you have been suffering from chronic back pains, we will work to diagnose the cause of your condition and develop the most direct treatment plan possible.

Nonsurgical spinal treatments

Back and neck pain will often go away on its own, but you can speed up recovery with noninvasive spinal treatments. Our team only prescribes the latest, most effective pain and anti-inflammatory medications approved by the FDA. Patients with chronic back pain may need to undergo rehabilitation in order to recover.

Our spinal treatments include:

  • Physical and occupational therapy – Personalized rehab programs where you work one-on-one with a therapist to learn new exercises and lifestyle habits designed to mitigate pain and regain mobility.
  • Trigger point injections – An injection of anti-inflammatory medication applied directly to diseased joint tissue.
  • Heat and cold therapy – Application of heat or ice can help relieve back pain. Heat therapy stimulates blood flow and helps muscles relax while cold therapy decreases blood flow to reduce inflammation.
  • Therapeutic massage – Massages stimulate blood flow and loosen up stiff muscles. Regular massage therapy appointments can keep back pain under control.
  • Pain medication – When taken exactly as prescribed, medication can be a valuable source of short-term pain relief. There is a small risk a patient could develop an addiction to painkillers, but a doctor’s prescribed medication regimen is carefully planned so that patients do not develop a physical dependency.
  • Spinal traction – This therapy relieves spinal pressure. During this treatment, the spine is stretched by a physical therapist or spinal traction device. By manipulating the spine, a physical therapist is able to relieve pressure on damaged spinal joints.

  • Before my surgeries, it was increasingly more difficult to walk, to exercise, to ski because of the pain. Consequently, the knee replacement surgery was like a miracle to me.
