As your body’s central support structure, your spine takes responsibility for all of your movements: you are able to sit, stand, walk, bend, and twist with the help of your spine. The spine is vulnerable to many types of injury and pain, from the force of a car accident to the repetitive strain of sitting hunched over at a desk all day. While many of us take a healthy spine for granted, neck and back pain is a reminder of how much we depend on our spine daily. At Elite Specialty Care, we provide diagnosis and treatment for a full range of spinal conditions, from degenerative disorders to spine deformities like scoliosis, spinal trauma, and more. Our spine team works in collaboration with other Elite Specialty Care physicians to offer a spectrum of treatment options, from innovative pain management solutions to the most
Your spine condition may not require surgical intervention. Many of our patients at Elite Specialty Care make a full recovery without even considering surgery. Our spine team works closely with Elite Specialty Care’s pain management specialists to offer non-surgical solutions for spine conditions, including epidural steroid injections, spinal cord stimulation, radiofrequency ablation, and more. Although surgery may be the only option for the more complex spinal conditions and deformities, our spine surgeons prefer a patient try non-surgical modalities whenever possible.
If your spine condition warrants surgery, Elite Specialty Care is home to New Jersey and New York’s top spine surgeons, who use minimally-invasive techniques and state-of-the-art technology to optimize your recovery. Minimally-invasive spine surgery is safer and often involves less downtime than traditional open spine surgery because of the reduced trauma to muscles and soft tissues. Spine surgery may be recommended if non-surgical treatment fails to provide adequate pain relief or address the cause of your condition. With many spine conditions, the goal of surgery is either to relieve pressure put on nerves due to surrounding structures, or to re-stabilize the spine as a result of degeneration. By collaborating with other physicians at Elite Specialty Care, our spine team will develop a pre- and post-surgical rehabilitation plan to ensure that you can return with as much range of motion and function as possible following surgery.
Regardless of the level of activity or participation, the spine is the most vulnerable to injury while exercising or playing in sports. At Elite Specialty Care, we treat a wide range of sports-related injuries to the spine, from a pulled muscle in the back to a traumatic spinal cord injury. Following any type of injury or pain, it is important to see a specialist, as leaving a sports injury untreated can result in more severe symptoms and long-term effects. This is especially true for injuries to the spine; damage to the spine can result in major health issues and loss of function in other parts of the body. Your treatment may involve a combination of pain management techniques and surgical intervention.
