At the outset of your care, it is imperative to arrive at an accurate and correct diagnosis. Commonly, patients are misdiagnosed with shoulder and hip problems when they actually they may have a disc herniation causing compression of a nerve and resulting pain. Nonsurgical options are optimized first prior to considering any surgery. Surgery is a LAST RESORT when symptoms do not respond to other conservative modalities – pain management, physical therapy, epidural injections, acupuncture, etc. Most of the time, symptoms do resolve to these measures and surgery can be avoided. We have established a non-surgical treatment center, Spine Options that manages your care from this perspective.
