Common Spine Conditions

The spine team at Piedmont utilizes a variety of diagnostic tests to evaluate each patient’s condition and pinpoint the cause of the pain. Piedmont physicians are skilled in employing EMG testing, facet injections, nerve blocks, and more to learn the exact source of your pain so the most effective treatment plan can be applied. Your physician will also listen to you to learn more about your lifestyle and goals to determine what type of treatment would best fit your comfort level.

If you suffer from back pain, you know that it sometimes can be incredibly difficult to diagnose properly. The spine is a series of 25 joints stacked on top of each other. To put that in perspective, your knee has two joints. Those 25 joints must work together with 23 discs, a series of ligaments and multiple different muscles encasing the spinal cord to bend, twist, and support our body weight on a daily basis – a tall task. When your spine encounters an injury or additional stress, you want a skilled specialist in your corner helping to quickly and accurately diagnose the cause, and therefore prescribe the best treatment. Low back pain is said to be the single leading cause of disability worldwide.

You can learn more about some of the more common spine conditions in our Patient Education section, however we recommend making an appointment with a spine specialist who can evaluate your unique case and provide additional information that is most useful to you.
