Orthopedic Surgery in Norcross GA
If you are suffering from back pain, you may need more than a traditional chiropractor to help you solve the problem. While chiropractic treatment may relieve pain temporarily, a displaced disc or a herniated disc may need surgical intervention. At the Injury & Wellness Specialists of Georgia, Dr. Tannaz Modaresi, Chiropractor, and Dr. Miguel Jimenez, Orthopedic Surgeon, work closely together to provide optimal care for each of the patients our Norcross office sees.
Spinal Injections When Chiropractic Care is Not Enough
It is possible to manage back pain with chiropractic care, but when you may be a candidate for orthopedic surgery, you need options. Dr. Jimenez will assess your condition if you are not improving, and will consider spinal injections or disc injections to help your body heal from the pain you are experiencing. Through the use of injections, it's possible to calm down an inflamed area, giving your body the tools you need to heal.
Treating Your Injured Back in a Number of Ways
Back pain can be fleeting, or it can be so severe that you visit the office of a back surgeon for answers. Whether you are in the beginning stages of treatment, or you are a strong candidate for orthopedic surgery, our office can help you. Using the most up to date technology, we will carefully assess your condition and make the least invasive recommendations for treatment possible. We understand that surgery may be a last resort, and we work hard to relieve your pain in the least invasive and restrictive way we can.
When Injections Don't Work or Pain is Acute and Severe
Sometimes there is no way to avoid back orthopedic surgery. If you are in pain that is both acute and severe, you may have a ruptured disc that needs immediate surgical intervention. This is very painful, and can cause numerous health problems if not treated right away. If you have tried chiropractic care with no results, and spinal injections have made no impact, you may need to see an orthopedic surgeon to discuss your next course of treatment.
