The importance of Comprehensive Spine Care
Comprehensive spine care is a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating spine conditions. This approach involves a team of healthcare professionals from different specialties working together to develop an individualized treatment plan for each patient.
The spine is a complex structure, and spine conditions can be challenging to diagnose and treat. Comprehensive spine care ensures that patients receive the most effective and appropriate treatment for their specific condition. The team typically includes spine surgeons, physical therapists, pain management specialists, and other healthcare professionals.
Comprehensive spine care starts with an accurate diagnosis. Patients typically undergo a thorough evaluation, including a medical history, physical examination, and imaging tests such as X-rays, MRI, or CT scans. The team then develops a customized treatment plan that may include a combination of non-surgical treatments such as physical therapy, medication, or injections, as well as surgical interventions when necessary.
The goal of comprehensive spine care is to provide patients with the highest quality of care while minimizing the risk of complications and ensuring the best possible outcome. By working together, the team can address all aspects of the patient’s condition, including pain management, physical rehabilitation, and psychological support.
Another key factor is to find doctors that care about the health of the patient as a whole. As you can see from our patient, Mr. Richardson, support from your doctor makes all the different:
“The first time I met with Dr. Patel and staff of New Spine Institute to talk about back pain; I was weighing 397 lbs.; I was advised by Dr.Patel that in order for the epidural injections to fully be effective, I would have to commit to following a rigorous exercise plan and maintain a healthy eating lifestyle. He stated the effectiveness of the epidural injections would solely depend on how committed I would be to this treatment. Then I went in for a second epidural injection weighing 388 lbs. Finally, on February 15 2023 I met with Dr. Patel, weighing in at 319 lb. Dr. Patel was so impressed with my progress and positive outcomes, he stated that I had done the work the right way and that there was a greater chance that surgery would no longer be needed.
I am so thankful to Dr. Patel and the New Spine Institute staff for helping me to exercise better, keep up my stamina, and become more confident. I appreciate all the work they’ve done to help me jump-start my weight loss journey and to achieve my weight loss goal of 199 lbs”
