At the outset of your care, it is imperative to arrive at an accurate and correct diagnosis. Commonly, patients are diagnosed with shoulder and hip problems when in actuality they have a disc herniation causing compression of a nerve and resulting pain.
Nonsurgical options are optimized first prior to considering any surgery. Surgery is usually a last resort when symptoms do not respond to other conservative modalities – pain management, physical therapy, epidural injections, acupuncture, etc.
