Normally patients will seek diagnosis after experiencing pain in the back, neck, legs or arms. It can be extremely difficult to identify the central location of the pain as patients begin to feel the effects in other areas.
Factors your neurosurgeon will consider in diagnosis include the location of the pain, severity of symptoms and medical history. Our specialists use multiple diagnostic tools to determine the specific condition such as physical examination, radiology and in some cases electromyography.
After a condition has been identified, your neurosurgeon will determine the best patient-focused treatment plan. Treatment options can vary from non-invasive rehabilitation to surgical procedures. In some cases patients may need to undergo a mix of both therapies to get the best results.
Prevention and early intervention is crucial in the success of managing or curing neurological conditions. If you have a family history of back pain or osteoporosis, it is important to begin preventive care and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
