Acute/Chronic Pain

Acute & Chronic Spine Pain Treatment

PA & NJ Back Pain Specialists

Pain is the body’s warning signal that there is a problem. During illness or injury, pain begins in receptor nerve cells in the organs and under the skin, traveling along nerve pathways to the spinal cord, which carries the message to the brain.

As one of the most common U.S. medical problems, back pain may begin abruptly due to an accident or injury or may develop over time due to age-related spine degeneration. Much of our daily activity depends on our spine health. When pain threatens to derail your daily life, trust the award-winning neurosurgeons at Princeton Brain, Spine & Sports Medicine to provide cutting-edge diagnosis, non-surgical intervention, minimally invasive and traditional surgical solutions tailored to your needs.

Minimally Invasive Surgery for Pain

When conservative treatment fails to successfully treat your spine pain, minimally invasive or traditional surgery may be required. Minimally invasive spine surgery usually results in the same outcome as traditional surgery, but with smaller incisions, less tissue disruption and shorter recovery times. In cases where traditional “open” spine surgery is needed, our elite team of neurosurgeons is fellowship-trained to provide skilled, exemplary care using advanced surgical techniques.
