Conditions We Treat at Our Spine Center in Great Neck

There are many spinal and musculoskeletal problems that prevent residents of Great Neck from going about their normal routines. These are the conditions we treat regularly at Long Island Spine. Once we take your complete medical history, perform a thorough physical exam, and administer any necessary diagnostic imaging tests, we will be in a much better position to determine which of our treatments will be most helpful to you.

Conditions we treat at our Great Neck rehabilitation clinic include, but are not limited to:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Bursitis and tendonitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Herniated discs
  • Hip and knee pain
  • Meniscal tears
  • Neuropathy
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Pinched nerves
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder pain and frozen shoulder
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Tennis elbow

Reasons for Spinal and Musculoskeletal Pain

It is surprising how many different causes of similar pain there can be. Spinal and musculoskeletal pain can result from:

  • Natural wear and tear on the joints resulting from aging
  • Sports injury or car accident
  • Damage from prior injury or previous surgery
  • Repetitive injury from persistent pitching, lifting, stirring, reaching, carrying
  • Sudden awkward movement that moves a joint abnormally
  • Slip and fall injury
  • Construction or occupational injury
  • Underlying disease condition

It is important to note that, even with the most highly trained diagnosticians and most up-to-date equipment, some people will have pain that is of unknown origin (idiopathic). Fortunately, in the vast majority of cases, no matter what the cause of your pain is, even if its cause is never identified, our doctors and physical therapists will be able to relieve it.

Methods We Use To Diagnose Your Problem At Our Great Neck Office

In addition to taking your medical history and performing a physical exam, we have several means to assist us in diagnosing what’s wrong. Imaging tests of various types are available, including X-rays, MRI and CT scans, ultrasound, and electrodiagnostic studies (EMG and nerve conduction studies), and our doctors have expertise in performing, reading and interpreting these test results.

Also, we often administer selective injection procedures. These injections, administered under ultrasound or fluoroscopic guidance, are positioned to anesthetize a particular nerve or anatomic structure to see if that is the nerve responsible for your pain. By pinpointing the source of your pain, we are able to target it in order to provide you with relief. Other methods of diagnosis we use in our Great Neck rehabilitation center are nerve conduction studies and electromyography (EMG), to reveal nerve or muscle dysfunction, efficiency of nerve-to-muscle transmission of signals, and speed of electrical neurological signals.

Our Effective Treatments Are Non-Invasive, Safe, and Pain-Free

The state-of-the-art treatments offered at our spine clinic in Great Neck include:

  • Acupuncture in which tiny needles are painlessly inserted to relieve pain by stimulating the central nervous system to release endorphins
  • Spinal epidural injections, administered under fluoroscopic guidance, to precisely target the site of your pain with a combination of corticosteroid to reduce inflammation and analgesic to reduce pain
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy in which a sample of your own blood is taken, enriched with your own platelets through the use of a centrifuge, and then reinjected to promote healing in the injured area
  • PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) technology that uses electromagnetic waves at different frequencies to reduce pain and stimulate healing
  • Acupuncture in which tiny needles are painlessly inserted to relieve pain by stimulating the central nervous system to release endorphins

The Great Neck rehabilitation center of Long Island Spine has helped thousands of patients like you to decrease/eliminate pain and improve mobility.
