An annular tear can occur in the cervical spine, creating neck pain, and in the lumbar spine, creating pain or other sensations that may radiate down a single leg or both legs. The pain often grows worse during lifting or bending motions, sneezing, coughing, sitting and standing.
North American Spine Can Help
If conservative treatments like physical therapy and pain medication have not provided relief for your chronic pain, the next step may be a North American Spine procedure. North American Spine’s exclusive procedures treat annual tears by repairing the rupture and relieving pressure on the spinal nerves caused by leaking disc fluid. After the outpatient procedure, most patients feel immediate relief and are able to resume light activities the very next day.
The first step is to pinpoint the true cause of your chronic neck or back pain. Contact a North American Spine Patient Care Manager at (877) 474-2225 to discuss your symptoms, past treatments and medical history, combined with a free review of your MRI report.
North American Spine specialists can review your case and determine whether the procedure is right for you.
