As a treatment center for back, neck and spine problems, Saint Francis Joint & Spine Center offers the surgical and non-surgical options to help you find relief from chronic neck and back pain.
Whether you simply need physical therapy to strengthen your back or surgery to repair a broken vertebra, our experienced spine doctors can help you to feel better and return to a happy, pain-free life.
Saint Francis Healthcare provides a range of non-surgical treatment options for conditions causing back pain that include:
Injections: such as epidural steroid injections, cortisone steroid injections, facet joint injections and injections to the nerve root sacroiliac.
Physical Therapy: including both passive and active treatments, stretching, strengthening and low impact aerobic exercise
While most cases of back pain can be successfully treated with non-surgical options, some conditions may require surgery. Some of the diagnoses that may need surgery include:
Myelopathy and Stenosis
Degenerative Disc Disease
Spinal Cord Compression
Board-certified spine surgeons at the Saint Francis Bartlett Joint & Spine Center work with a specialized team of physicians to determine the best surgical treatment options for the patient. Surgical options may include:
Laminectomy/Discectomy: a procedure in which part of the lamina is removed as well as a portion of a ligament. The herniated disc is then removed.
Microdiscectomy:a procedure similar to a discectomy, but using a smaller injection
Lumbar Spinal Fusion: when two or more vertebra are joined together using bone grafts, screws and rods
