Back and Spine Disorders
Low back pain is one of the most common complaints people experience. Especially if you work hard or play hard, chances are you will develop some sort of strain on your spine. Even if you sit at a desk all day, you may have pain in your low back, mid-back, or neck.
The pain may develop gradually and be intermittent, like sciatica, or it can pop up all of a sudden and be quite severe, like a pinched nerve or herniated disc. Dr. Robert Czarkowski can help with back pain, neck pain, and nerve pain with a variety of conservative spine treatments.
Common spine disorders we treat include:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Herniated disc
- Spinal stenosis
- Slipped vertebrae
- Stress fracture
- Degenerative joint disease
- Pinched nerves
- Nerve pain
At St. Vincent Sports Medicine in Carmel, IN, the goal of treating spine disorders is to relieve pressure and pain caused by pinched or damaged nerves. Our conservative treatments do not include spine surgery. Instead, we can consider epidural steroid injections, nerve blocks, spinal cord stimulation, and physical therapy before resorting to surgery. If Dr. Czarkowski feels it is necessary for you to have surgery, he will refer you to a spine surgeon for special care.
