Your Achilles tendon is your strongest and largest tendon in your body. It is also known as the heel cord or calcaneal tendon. It is located on the back of your leg and connects your calf muscle to your heel bone. That makes it a very important part of your body, and if something goes wrong with it, it can affect many other important functions of your body.
There are millions of people in the United States who suffer from chronic and acute back pain. From work place injuries, sporting and recreational injuries, spinal conditions, and diseases - there are many causes for back pain. There are also many treatments for spinal and neck issues, yet many people only think of invasive surgeries that require lengthy recovery times. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are revolutionizing the idea of back surgery for those who suffer from neck and back pain. We are Atlanta's premier provider of minimally invasive spinal procedures, including spine stabilization. Our practice features a team of dual board certified Interventional Spine physicians who are highly trained and qualified to perform endoscopic spine surgery.
At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are devoted to helping patients attain long term relief from their back and neck pain. We understand that chronic back pain or acute neck pain can make life miserable and incapacitate those who suffer. Minimally invasive spine stabilization is an alternative to traditional open spine fusion surgery. It is an endoscopic surgical procedure that involves the use of a dynamic stabilization device to stabilize and limit movement of spinal discs while still allowing some flexibility and movement. This out-patient procedure is performed at our state of the art surgery center, and patients leave our facility with incisions small enough that they can be covered with a Band-Aid.
If you have suffered without finding sustainable and sufficient relief from your neck or back pain, contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians in Atlanta to schedule a consultation with one of our spine physicians. Our goal is to help you achieve an active and healthy lifestyle.
