At the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey, our experienced orthopaedic surgeons offer a comprehensive range of spine and pain management options to help you minimize or eliminate temporary, chronic, recurrent, or neuropathic (nerve-related) neck or back conditions. Furthermore, we emphasize conservative treatment options, recommending surgery only in the event other modalities prove ineffective.

Spinal Pain Management Process
Pain management involves multiple disciplines working together to address the wide range of conditions that can develop in the spine. This field includes the study, prevention, evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of back and neck pain. Oftentimes spinal discomfort is temporary and self-limiting, meaning it will resolve on its own with time, rest, and/or physical therapy. In other cases, more advanced techniques may be utilized to improve mobility and to enhance the patient’s well-being.
Spinal Pain Treatment Options
Our board certified orthopaedic surgeons employ an extensive selection of treatment options to help our patients return to comfort and regular activity as quickly and as safely as possible. Noninvasive and minimally invasive methods include:
- Over-the-Counter and Prescription Medication
- Physical Therapy
- Epidural Injections
- Behavior Modifications
- Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
If these conservative approaches fail to achieve the desired result, surgery may be recommended. Our experienced orthopaedists will develop a customized treatment plan that may involve multiple modalities to optimize results. Contact us today for more information or to schedule a consultation.
