Atlanta Cervical Herniated Disc Treatment
Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is Atlanta’s trusted provider of expert Cervical Herniated Disc treatment. We are an orthopedic, spine and sports medicine practice featuring a team of experienced Interventional Spine physicians, Interventional Sport physicians and orthopaedic spine specialists. We specialize in finding effective, minimally invasive solutions to complex neck pain and back problems, including Cervical Herniated Discs.
A Cervical Herniated Disc is a condition that occurs when one of the discs in upper region of the spine (neck) ruptures, usually due to trauma or other cause with forces that can rupture the discs. This rupturing can cause the gel-like substance from inside the disc to leak out and irritate the disc wall, spinal cord or its protruding nerve roots. For some, this chronic and painful condition can be debilitating. The physicians and staff from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are dedicated to helping individuals with Cervical Herniated Discs find long-term relief from their pain and other symptoms and return to full function and a greater quality of life.
Symptoms of Cervical Herniated Discs
The symptoms of a Cervical Herniated Disc can vary with each individual but may include pain, inflammation, pain that radiates to the head, upper back, shoulders and arms, numbness, tingling and muscle spasms. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians works collaboratively with other physicians, Chiropractors and physical therapists to co-manage patients with herniated discs. We offer a variety of conservative, non-surgical treatments to manage Cervical Herniated Discs including heat/cold, massage, strengthening exercises, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, steroid/anesthetic injections and more.
In some cases, the pain and other symptoms of a Cervical Herniated Disc are so severe that they are not able to be adequately managed using conservative, non-surgical treatments. In this case, surgery may be considered. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is proud to be one of the Southeast’s leading providers of minimally invasive, endoscopic spine surgery (also known as “band-aid back surgery”). This advanced surgical technique offers significant patient benefits over traditional back surgery including fewer complications, minimal blood loss and a shorter recovery time. Using endoscopic surgery, we are able to help many individuals with Cervical Herniated Discs find long-term relief from their pain and return to work and normal daily activities.
