Understanding the exact cause of your back pain is critical towards diagnosing and treating your back pain and related conditions. At the Spine & Rehab Group, we treat all types of back pain a patient may experience, such as:
Middle and Upper Back Pain - The middle back and upper back is also known as the thoracic spine region, below the cervical spine joints of the neck area, and while pain in this region may not be as common as neck pain or lower back pain, it’s just as symptomatic and painful, if not more. Our back pain specialists in Union County focus on non-surgical treatment for pain relief in these areas.
Lower Back Pain - One of the most common medical conditions in the world is lower back pain, also referred to as lumbar pain. This area is extremely sensitive, composed of joints, discs, muscles, and tendons, meaning there are a number of possible causes for acute or chronic back and bone pain. Some common causes include overactivity, osteoarthritis, herniated discs, back muscle strains, spinal stenosis, and more.
Sports Injuries - Stepping into the field or the court will always lead to the risk of suffering an injury, with back injuries being one of the most common injuries for athletes. Some common sports-related back injuries include cervical injuries, lumbar sprains and strains, fractures and other kinds of damage to the supporting structures of the spine, and more. The Spine & Rehab Group is committed to getting you performing back to your best.
Acute Back Pain - We all experience some kind of backache at one point or another. Acute back pain -- back pain coming immediately and lasting for a few days or weeks -- most commonly occurs in the lumbar region, because this area supports most of the weight in your body. Acute back pain is generally a result of sudden damage to the ligaments and muscles supporting the back. Let us check for any possible ligament problem, ligament tear, or other potential causes.
Chronic Back Pain - There are few pains more aggravating and frustrating than chronic back pain, which typically grows from untreated acute back pain. While about 95% of acute back pain naturally heals within 12 weeks with treatment, some evolve into a chronic condition. While chronic back pain is mostly age-related, there are some cases that are caused by a previous injury. Other common causes include spinal arthritis, spinal stenosis, disc issues, and myofascial pain syndrome.
The Spine & Rehab Group is led by Dr. Amr Hosny. As a board certified and Harvard trained interventional spine specialist, Dr. Hosny understands the ins and outs of back pain. With training and experience at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center, Columbia University in NYC, and Harvard Medical School, Dr. Hosny is one of the most trusted doctors in Union County and surrounding areas.
Dr. Hosny has spent decades working with patients for their acute and chronic pain and spinal conditions, and is committed towards helping patients return to their ideal physical state. Without resorting to surgery, Dr. Hosny diagnoses and creates personalized treatment plans fit for each and every patient, ensuring they return to their normal, pain-free lifestyle as soon as possible.
Treatments at The Spine & Rehab group begin with electrodiagnosis. Our board certified physicians can conveniently order diagnostic tests such as electromyography (EMG) and X-rays to evaluate your back muscles and nerves. With EMG tests, we can have a more in-depth understanding of the cause of your symptoms. Using the EMG, our physicians can rule out muscle and nerve disorders of the back, and from there we figure out the best plan of action for our patients.
EMG diagnosis can demystify a host of symptoms including weakness, cramping, a tingling sensation, serious back pain, and trace it back to actual affected nerves and muscles.
Our interventional back and pain practice is a non-surgical approach to pain relief. At The Spine & Rehab group, we promote recovery from back pain and injuries through a series of non- to minimally-invasive procedures. Our approach to pain management is multidisciplinary involving steroid injections and radiofrequency therapy, alongside the use of anti-inflammatory pain medicine.
Our interventional pain management experts consider your personal goals as well as your current lifestyle. We take into account how treatments affect each individual, considering your quality of life along with the efficacy of a certain treatment. Interventional pain medicine is a fantastic solution to chronic pain relief without any risk of debilitation or downtime.
Our facility is equipped with state of the art equipment to help with mobility and back pain issues. With a physical therapy-focused rehabilitation regimen, our primary goal is to strengthen your back muscles to eliminate chronic pain and prevent injuries in the future.
Each physical therapy plan is designed to accommodate your busy schedule and bring you closer to full recovery without needing surgery. Our in-house PT, Bethany Weinmann, is a board certified physical therapist. Our physical therapy programs are a combination of different techniques, from massage therapy to postural alignment, to electrical stimulation.
At The Spine & Rehab Group, we use acupuncture alongside other non-surgical treatment options for both pain management and recovery. The typical acupuncture session involves the insertion of sterile hair-thin needles, with each session lasting anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes, as administered by a certified acupuncturist. Acupuncture is especially useful in managing lower back pain and chronic back pain.
Acupuncture is a great alternative to other non-surgical and minimally-invasive procedures. For patients who don’t want to receive steroid injections as part of their pain management plan, our licensed acupuncturist can offer relief. The needles directly stimulate the central nervous system and release chemicals including opioid peptides and amino acids that work with the brain to block out pain signals and promote relief.
Promote blood flow and provide relief through manual massage therapy. Our medical massage therapy is done by a licensed massage therapist. Compared to normal massages, our medical massage therapy is designed to target aching back muscles and nerves and offer instant relief.
Sports injuries, acute injuries, and post-surgery aches are common reasons why people undergo massage therapy and rehabilitation.
What is the difference between chiropractic care and the treatments at The Spine & Rehab Group?
The Spine & Rehab Group has a holistic treatment approach to back pain. Compared to chiropractic clinics with chiropractor back adjustment services, we offer a more extensive suite of services, including diagnostics and acupuncture.
We offer non-invasive to minimally-invasive procedures to help patients manage pain and improve their quality of life. Our board certified physicians don’t offer spinal alignment. Instead, we offer pain relief and rehabilitation through interventional back practice and steroid injections.
What other conditions do we treat?
We treat injuries and pains relating to the muscles and nerves including spinal cord injuries, after surgery care, and joint pain. We also work with the upper and lower extremities and help patients deal with anything from tennis elbow injury, shoulder pain, to knee pain and ankle sprains and general foot care.
Our team also deals with more serious cases involving the spine including herniated disc pain, spinal stenosis, and other vertebrae-related illnesses and conditions.
Regardless of the condition, our treatment approach is always conservative-first and patient-centered. We also offer specialized treatment in the form of sports medicine and acupuncture.
I’ve undergone physical medicine before but it didn’t work for me; how can The Spine & Rehab help?
Physical medicine treatments aren’t created equally. At The Spine & Rehab Group, we begin by understanding the cause of your symptoms. We aim to get a deeper understanding of the source of your nerve, muscle, and joint pain to truly understand your back’s health.
We combine different techniques to help patients rehabilitate and manage their pain, whether you’re suffering from a chronic condition or experiencing an acute injury that needs to be treated specifically with sports medicine.
Easy access to treatment facilities and diagnostic centers is crucial in maintaining a pain-free life. The Spine & Rehab Group’s Union County office is perfect for patients looking for an all-in-one center for pain management, diagnostics, and physical therapy.
As one of the most densely-populated counties in New Jersey and the whole United States, Union County offers its residents a variety of activities and experiences, but it is also home to countless individuals living with untreated musculoskeletal and spinal conditions.
Union County offers a unique blend of urban living and natural settings, and getting the most out of it means living pain-free from any back, neck, or other kinds of spinal pain. Explore through one of the many parks (like Mattano Park and Briant Park), stroll down Elizabeth River, or visit the Hawk Rise bird Sanctuary on the banks of the Rahway River. Never miss a beat of the Union County experience with pain holding you back.
Finally, living with untreated spinal pain can make everyday life difficult and certain activities impossible, particularly if you live alone. According to the United States Census Bureau, nearly a quarter of all Union County residents live alone, with almost 1 in every 10 being over the age of 65.
At the Spine & Rehab Group, we are committed to providing patients in Union County the best level of back pain care and rehabilitation with a fully-equipped facility under the guidance of board-certified physicians.
