Comprehensive Spine Surgery & Treatment

If you’re experiencing back pain and discomfort, it’s time to get care, so you can return to an active, pain-free lifestyle. Otherwise, the condition is likely to progress, impacting your range of motion, mobility, and quality of life. To get the care you need, all you have to do is schedule a visit with our spine specialists at Full Circle Orthopedic. Our comprehensive approach to spine surgery and treatment allows us to treat the full range of spinal disorders, so you can feel your best once again.

Spine Treatment

Common Conditions Treated with Spine Surgery

Spine surgery and treatment can help resolve neck, shoulder, and back pain caused by conditions, like:

Disc herniation
Degenerative disc disease
Spinal fractures
Spondylolisthesis
Spinal stenosis
Scoliosis
Spinal tumors
Cervical myelopathy
Adult spinal deformities

Since pain refers out from its source, problems along the spine can cause symptoms all throughout your body. Only with a thorough diagnosis is it possible to truly tell what’s going on. Through that process, your spine specialist can identify the best spine surgery and treatment options for your needs.

Our Approach to Spine Surgery and Treatment

As the leading provider of spine surgery and treatment in Harbor and Clearwater, Florida, we only use the most advanced diagnosis and care techniques. You can trust that you’ll always get the highest quality of care as a result.

Our approach starts with a thorough examination to learn about your back pain and other symptoms, like:

Back pain
Neck pain
Shoulder pain
Numbness
Tingling
Weakness
Muscle spasms

Our specialists may also want to order X-rays, an MRI, or other imaging tests to fully visualize the problem. Once we make an accurate diagnosis, you’ll learn about the condition causing your pain and get to explore all the possible treatments.

You may benefit from trying simple treatments first, but that doesn’t always work to fully relieve the pain. In some cases, it may be necessary to complete non-surgical spine treatments or spinal surgery.

All along the way, we pair proven treatment practices with the latest technology to treat the condition at hand. Through that process, you have the best chance at getting relief from all the symptoms that impact your life.

Non-Surgical Spine Treatments

At our clinic, the treatment process often begins with non-surgical spine treatments that can help relieve your symptoms, such as:

spine exercise

Spine Exercise

Strengthening your muscles through regular exercise can help reduce strain on your spine. You’ll want to work with your spinal specialist to determine what level of physical activity will build strength without making your condition worse.

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy

If a solo exercise program is not right for you, then you may benefit from physical therapy. A licensed physical therapist will help improve your range of motion, strength, and overall fitness, helping relieve pressure on your spine.

Massage therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy helps reduce muscle tightness and inflammation, helping relieve your back pain and discomfort. You’ll need to go to regular sessions with a licensed massage therapist to get the best results.

Steroid Injections

Steroid Injections

Steroid injections go beyond the effects of over-the-counter medications in reducing inflammation. Your spinal specialist will use a live x-ray to guide the medication into the dural sac where it will work best.

If the non-surgical treatments do not produce the desired results, then your spine specialist will discuss surgery next. After fully recovering from surgery, you may want to continue with your exercise program, physical therapy, or massage as needed to feel your best.

Types of Spine Surgery

When non-surgical treatments do not provide relief – or the condition will not respond to that approach – spine surgery is often the answer. At our clinic, we perform many different types of minimally-invasive surgical procedures, including:

Kyphoplasty

The precise application of orthopedic cement to treat vertebral body compression fractures.

Laminectomy

The elimination of bone spurs and other obstructions to decompress the spinal column and relieve pressure on your nerves.

Discectomy

The removal of herniated discs to reduce pressure on the spinal cord and column.

Spinal Fusion

The fusion of vertebrae using metal plates or bone grafts after the removal of herniated discs.

The type of treatment you need depends on the condition causing your pain and discomfort. Your spinal specialist will discuss all the options available to you, so you can make well-informed decisions about your care.
