The anatomy of the spine and the functions it serves are remarkable. This combination of bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles and highly sensitive nerves provides strength, flexibility and mobility to the human body on an ongoing basis.
Experts estimate that approximately 80% of the population will experience back pain at some point. If you are suffering from a painful spinal condition, which can include pain referring into other parts of the body such as your arms, hips and legs, you're likely looking for quick relief. It is important to find a highly skilled expert to help determine the cause of your pain and develop a thorough treatment plan to relieve it.
With advanced training and in-depth understanding of the intricacies of the spine, physicians at Sheltering Arms not only offer interventional procedures/spinal injections, but they are board certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation and are dedicated to managing your overall rehabilitation and recovery as well.
They use a three-tiered treatment plan:
- The first tier includes physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication and activity modification with the goal of the pain improving over time. Your physician will work closely with your physical therapist to ensure timely and accurate communication of progress.
- If pain persists, the second tier includes all of the above recommendations in addition to selective spinal injections.
- The third tier involves more invasive procedures, including surgery if necessary.
Our physicians are dedicated to using the least invasive methods for easing your pain as thoroughly and efficiently as possible. Let them help you today!
