Is it time to consult a neurosurgeon about my back pain?
When seeking back pain relief, consulting with a neurosurgeon may not be the first idea that comes to mind. However, the spine features a complex network of nerves that can easily become compressed as a result of bulging discs, shifting vertebrae, osteoarthritis and many other factors. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, spinal nerve compression may be to blame:
- Shooting or radiating back pain
- Numbness or tingling sensations in the neck, back or extremities
- Muscle weakness or reduced coordination in the lower body
The neurosurgeons at Tufts Medical Center Community Care provide surgical and nonsurgical solutions to patients with bakc pain. When surgery is recommended, they leverage minimally invasive techniques to achieve optimal outcomes with shorter recovery periods and less post-operative discomfort.
