A Brief 411 on Spinal Treatments Atlanta, GA

Spine injuries are frightening, and learning about your treatment options can be overwhelming – they often use terms you’ve never heard of before, and it can be hard discerning which is best for your situation.

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we offer a wide range of spinal injury treatments, from minimally invasive surgery to interventional treatments, and this list is just a quick overview of what’s available to you for more common spinal conditions.

Minimally Invasive Stabilization
This procedure helps limit the amount of motion of spinal discs, while still allowing some flexibility. It helps reduce pain and increase function and is a great option for people suffering from chronic pain conditions like spinal stenosis. It’s performed as an outpatient surgery in our outpatient surgery center.
Epidural Steroids
We offer 2 types of epidural steroids – cervical and lumbar. A cervical epidural steroid injection is a nonsurgical treatment that helps patients suffering pain in the upper neck and spine due to irritated nerves. It’s a common option for those experiencing a pinched nerve, herniated disk or spinal stenosis. Lumbar epidural steroid injections address similar condition, but in the lower back.
Radiofrequency Ablation
This procedure is a nonsurgical treatment option that can provide relief for low back pain, neck pain, and arthritic joints. An electrical wave heats up the area of aggravated nerve tissue, decreasing pain signals to the brain. Pain relief from this procedure can last anywhere from 6 months to years after treatment.

This is certainly not a comprehensive list. To learn more about all of the treatments we offer, give Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians a call today. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have, as well as help you decide which option is best for your injury or condition.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
