Sometimes when accidents, trauma or neglect happens surgery may be one of the main options to be considered when back and spine pain is involved.
On Saturday we had the opportunity to meet three back and spine specialist from the Back and Spine Center at Martin Memorial. The doctors, John K.B. Afshar, M.D., John R Robinson, Jr., M.D. and John J. Viola, M.D. seemed very knowledgeable about the back and spine and presented themselves as very patient friendly.
Diagnosing Back and Spine Problems
The doctors’ explained that one of the keys to relieving your pain faster is diagnosing its cause early as possible. Your diagnosis can be coordinated through one of Martin Health’s 5 convenient Imaging Centers in the Martin County Area. Each center has state-of-the-art MRIs, PET/CT scanners, bone densitometry and X-rays that immediately produce clear digital images that are transmitted electronically to the Back and Spine Center for analysis.
“That’s why you can get an appointment with a neurosurgeon at the Back and Spine Center within 24 to 48 hours of your tests”. You can even see a physicians assistant the same day. They can also partner with pain management and chiropractic specialists to help you relieve and control discomfort.
Non-Surgical Back and Spine Alternatives
The doctors mentioned that neurosurgery isn’t always the only answer for back and spine patients. That’s why a wide range of non-surgical treatment options are available and considered. At Back and and Spine Center at Martin Memorial a dedicated physical therapist can develop a customized treatment plan for you.
A holistic approach can be developed for you that may include proper nutrition, exercise, weight management, acupuncture and therapeutic massage.
Preventative Back and Spine Care
Preventative care may start with proper use of posture, exercise, proper weight management and limiting your exposure to strains and blunt trauma. Contact your health care provider for specific instructions. And as always proper nutrition is the best foundation to better health.
