Does Severe Back Pain Mean the End of an Active Lifestyle? Atlanta, GA
Man suffering from discogenic pain.

Discogenic pain is a common condition, afflicting up to six million Americans. Symptoms will depend on the source of the problem. You may experience acute or chronic back pain when active, sitting, coughing or sneezing. Many patients experience symptoms that spread to the neck or legs.

This type of pain stems from a damaged vertebral disc. You may suffer from debilitating symptoms in severe cases. However, that does not mean that you will need extreme treatment interventions. Conservative options often provide effective relief, which eliminates the need for surgery.

Conservative Treatment for Discogenic Pain

Where appropriate, Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians will offer non-surgical solutions for discogenic pain. Physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, intra-discal injections and temperature based treatments can provide relief.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians will closely monitor your response to conservative treatment options. We strive to ensure that patients are offered the easiest path to recovery possible. Providing relief without surgery is part of our specialist services.

Discogenic Pain Causes

There is no established cause of discogenic pain. The leading theory is that trauma and absorption of forces cause wear to the discs. If you are a smoker, there is a greater risk of developing the condition. It is also important to continue exercising to relieve symptoms.

Regardless of the underlying cause of discogenic pain, it is important to follow a structured treatment plan. If conservative options do not produce results, Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians can perform a minimally invasive surgery.

Endoscopic spine surgery offers a path to relief that involves faster recovery and reduced risk of complications. Our goal is to help you get back to life as normal, which includes continuing to enjoy physical lifestyle activities such as playing a sport.

Discogenic Pain Consultation

If you have suddenly developed back pain, do not delay in seeking relief. Turn to the double board-certified specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. A consultation will help us understand the impact of your condition and determine potential causes.

We will recommend treatments for discogenic pain that provide fast and effective relief. Call our offices today for access to nationwide spinal pain treatment.

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.
