Neck & Back
Neck pain and back pain are among the most common medical problems, affecting as many as eight out of ten people at some point during their lives. The pain can range from a dull, constant ache to sudden, sharp pain. Acute neck and back pain comes on suddenly and usually lasts from a few days to a few weeks, whereas chronic neck and back pain lasts for more than three months.
The board-certified orthopedic specialists at Advanced Orthopedics New England realize how neck and back pain can severely limit your activities and negatively affect the quality of your life. That’s why they take the time to carefully assess and diagnose the problem before plainly discussing suitable treatment options you can easily understand.
Advanced Orthopedics New England is a recognized authority in the treatment of conditions including spinal stenosis, herniated discs, and degenerative disc disease, facet joint conditions, sciatica, and scoliosis.
Our spinal surgery team, led by Dr. David Kruger, will explore all options and alternatives for your individual case. If surgery is necessary, you can rest assured that you are in the best of hands as Dr. Kruger is specially trained in the most advanced spine and neck procedures.
In addition to spinal surgery, our compassionate experts offer on-site epidurals for neck and back pain. This brief, outpatient procedure uses an injection to deliver pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory medication directly to the source of your pain. The doctor can give this injection, whether in the neck, upper back, or lower back, providing pain relief for several months.
