TREATMENT OF SPINAL DISORDERS: NECK INJURIES & CONDITIONS
NJ orthopedic phsysician Robert A. Kayal is an expert in the treatment of spinal disorders. From neck to lower back, spinal disorders are among the most common and most painful conditions patients may experience. Neck injuries and neck conditions can occur in athletes and others who place regular physical strain on their spine. Neck pain is also common in aging patients, as wear and tear and poor posture lead to spinal degeneration. The spine surgeons at the Kayal Orthopaedic Center specialize in diagnosing and treating neck conditions of varying degrees of severity, including:
- Herniated discs (cervical, thoracic, lumbar)
- Degenerative disc disease and bulging discs
- Osteoperosis and osteoarthritis
- Sprains, strains and spinal fractures
- Myelopathy and radiculopathy
- Pinched nerves and sciatica
- Spinal stenosis
The neck is vulnerable to a wide range of disorders. Herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, fractures and persistent pain—which can be felt in the back, shoulders and arms, in addition to the neck—are just a few common neck problems. These conditions have the potential to limit nearly every aspect of a person’s life, causing disabling pain and reduced range of motion. In minor cases, basic treatment (such as rest, stretching and anti-inflammatory drugs) may minimize neck pain. However, orthopedic intervention may be necessary to manage more serious disorders.
The spine and neck surgeons at Kayal Orthopaedic Center, PC provide expert treatment for patients with neck disorders. Diagnosis is accomplished through a combination of physical examinations and imaging tools, such as MRIs and CT scans. These diagnostic tools provide Dr. Kayal and his team with the information needed to develop a treatment plan specific to each patient. Ideally, conservative treatments will be effective. These may include: limited or altered activity, anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy and exercise, bracing or neck supports, and steroidal injections. Should neck pain and immobility persist, surgical intervention may be required.
