When you suffer from back pain, it impacts your quality of life and is frightening. So doesn’t it make sense to seek treatment from a top-rated health care facility where all we do is spine care? At Dallas Spine Care, your Dallas spine doctor specializes in diagnosing and treating spinal injuries and conditions. Our mission is to help patients who suffer from conditions of the spine that result in chronic back and leg pain. We are a state-of-the-art surgical practice, dedicated to listening to every patient and then creating an individualized treatment plan that will result in the best possible patient outcome. Let our compassionate and highly skilled team, led by Dr. Robert J. Henderson, help you get back to living an active and pain-free life. If you suffer from any of these conditions, we are here to help you: debilitating back and leg pain, patients who have received prior treatment without improvement, sacroiliac joint syndrome, herniated discs, lumbar trauma, degenerative disc disease, or compression fractures.
Your Dallas spine doctor offers many treatment options to address your spine injury and spine care. Based upon your diagnosis, you may be treated non-invasively or surgically. Most back and neck pain involves a combination of tissue structures, such as nerve root irritation, disc herniations, bone spurs, or scar formation. In many instances, with proper rest and mindful activity, minor spine injuries resolve within 4-6 weeks. If not, further testing may be ordered. For minor injuries, heat may be recommended, or certain pain or anti-inflammatory medications prescribed. At Dallas Spine Center, we support the idea that prevention is the best policy to avoid back and neck injuries. Maintain a healthy weight and use proper body mechanics during daily activities. Physical therapy is an important treatment for spine health. When pain is persistent, epidural injections may be given to decrease pain in the hope of trying to avoid an operation. Other non-invasive options include acupuncture, massage or reflexology, chiropractic adjustment, bio-magnets, and yoga which have been known to provide temporary relief.
Surgery is always the last option, and performed only on clear and identifiable conditions as a solution to decrease pain and restore full function. The Dallas spine doctor will work with you to diagnose the cause of your back pain and provide appropriate treatment strategies to get you well again.
