Spine Specialists Treating Patients in Reno, NV
Have you been experiencing pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness in your neck, your back, or any of your extremities? If so, you might require treatment for a spine condition. Fortunately, if you’re in Reno, Nevada, or a surrounding area, you can turn to the spine specialists at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, a trusted orthopedic practice that’s been in operation since 1966.
What Does Treatment Involve?
At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we generally recommend that our patients first attempt to relieve their symptoms using conservative, non-invasive techniques like:
- Taking pain medication or anti-inflammatory medication
- Applying a warm compress or an ice pack
- Wearing a brace
- Participating in physical therapy
- Undergoing corticosteroid injections, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy, or ultrasound therapy
- Periodically resting the area
In some cases, these methods aren’t able to provide sufficient relief, and when that happens, surgery may be necessary. If that’s the case for you, you can rest easy knowing that the spine specialists on our team have experience performing a variety of spine procedures, including discectomies, laminectomies, and fusions. In some instances, we may even be able to perform surgery using minimally invasive techniques, which can lead to a lower risk of infection and a shorter recovery time.
