The spinal nerves are essential to our body’s ability to function. Certain conditions and injuries can interfere with the nerves and cause immense pain and bodily control issues.
Make an appointment to discuss your surgical options with Dr. David Chang today. A minimally invasive spinal procedure could provide the long-lasting back pain relief you deserve and get you back to your fully functioning self.
Common Nerve Conditions & Injuries
The spinal nerves originate in the brain and run down the spinal column, and throughout the body. These nerves are responsible for our ability to feel pain. Sometimes another structure in the spine (a bulging vertebral disc for example) can move out of place and interfere with a nerve.
Symptoms of a nerve issue in the spine can include any combination of the following:
- Pain in the neck, back, legs, or arms
- Tingling, numbness, or loss of feeling in the back or extremities
- Issues controlling your bladder or bowels
How to Treat Spinal Nerve Conditions
Spinal nerve conditions can be treated using a variety of methods. Many patients begin with conservative treatments like pain medications, physical therapy, chiropractic, and pain injections. These methods often provide only temporary relief, and require patients to return for multiple treatments to manage pain. Minimally invasive spine surgery, on the other hand, provides long-term back pain relief by addressing the root of the nerve problem.
