Back, Neck, Spine

Back, neck and spine pain are something that many of us have come to believe we just have to live with. At Central Indiana Orthopedics, we work to eliminate those chronic issues so that you can live pain-free.

Back Pain

The majority of back pain symptoms stem from inflammation due to an acute injury or overuse of the muscles, joints or tendons. Pain can also be caused by chronic or degenerative conditions, such as arthritis.

Neck Pain

With so many of us spending our days in front of computer screens or looking down at our phones, neck pain is more common than ever. However, chronic neck pain needs to be evaluated before it can cause further damage.

Spine Injuries

The spine is a highly complex and critical component of the human body. Since spine injuries can affect virtually any body part, there are many conditions and injuries encompassed by spine pain, represented by a wide range of symptoms. (If associated with incontinence, go to the emergency room.)

Spine conditions and injuries should be examined by an orthopedic spine specialist for prompt and proper diagnosis.

Nonsurgical Treatment for Back, Neck and Spine Conditions

Central Indiana Orthopedics has a team of nonsurgical pain management physicians who are board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation and pain medicine and are specialty-trained to employ conservative methods to alleviate acute and chronic pain in the neck and spine as well as many other types of pain.

Candidates for nonsurgical pain management may include:

  • Patients who have acute or chronic pain
  • Patients who are not candidates for surgery
  • Patients who wish to avoid surgery, if possible
  • Patients who have failed to get relief from surgery
