We got your back!
Common everyday activities, like gardening or lifting groceries from the trunk of the car, can cause back pain that keeps you from doing what you love. If rest and over-the-counter medications offer little or no relief and pain is frequent or severe, it can be a sign of an underlying medical condition, injury or structural problem of the spine. Permanent damage and immobility may occur if left untreated. When chronic pain stops you from your daily activities, it is time to seek the care of an orthopedic specialist.
Athens Orthopedic Clinic’s expert team of orthopedic specialists, surgeons and therapists offers customized, complete, well-coordinated care for spine, neck and back pain. Nonsurgical options include physical therapy and pain management using steroid injections and nerve blocks. If these don’t help, surgery may offer the best chance for recovery. In most cases, surgeries can be performed using minimally invasive approaches—smaller incisions, specialized equipment and innovative techniques—for less pain and a faster recovery.
Athens Orthopedic Clinic has imaging centers, outpatient surgery centers, physical and occupational therapy facilities and orthopedic urgent care clinics throughout Northeast Georgia.
