At Access Sports Medicine, our spine care program is collaborative.
Board certified orthopaedic surgeons, physicians and allied health professionals work together to prevent and treat spinal disorders and injuries. Our team approach makes communication easy and treatment fast for most disorders of the spine.
These specialties, combined with our affiliation with the New Hampshire NeuroSpine Institute, grant us access to the Granite State’s top orthopaedic surgeons specializing in surgical treatments for the spine.
Most spine problems will not require surgery. At Access Sports, we look to non-surgical options first. Medically-advanced, non-operative treatments can give patients a quick recovery with minimal downtime. Some of these options include:
- Interventional spine care
- Epidural steroid injections (i.e. transforaminal, interlaminar and caudal)
- Facet joint injections
- Sacroiliac joint injections
- Medial branch blocks
- Radiofrequency ablations
- Physical therapy
If there is progressive nerve or spinal cord damage, surgery is considered as a viable option to help preserve the patient’s functionality.
