A spine and joint specialist is a health professional who focuses mainly on treating spine & joint conditions. Spine pain is also known as Osteoarthritis, which is a degenerative joint disease. It is a condition where the protective cartilage that cushions the tops of bones degenerates or wears down, which causes swelling and pain. It also causes the development of osteophytes or bone spurs.
Osteoarthritis of the spine is a breakdown of the cartilage of the discs and joints in the neck and lower back.

Treatments for Spine and Joint pain

  • Periodic Rest: Little trouble is expected as stiff joints loosen up in the morning or at the beginning of the exercise. However, severe back pain is a signal that the spine, surrounding muscles, and other soft tissue need a rest.
  • Heat and Cold Therapy: Using a warming pad can loosen stiff joints and make the activity easier. Icing the back for 15 to 20 minutes after exercise can reduce swelling and provide quick back pain relief.
  • Weight Management Therapy: Extra pounds increase extra pressure on the spine’s joints. Osteoarthritis is mainly found in overweight people. Proper diet and exercise can help to maintain a healthy weight, which reduces the extra pressure on the joints.
  • Physical Therapy: Doctors usually suggest physical therapy to help people with spine & joint pain. Physiatrists and physical therapists at Ashraya Hospital are specially trained in spinal rehabilitation and can create a customized exercise program for you. The main focus of physical therapy in the lumbar lower back or spine is to build strength in the core muscles, which include muscles in the back, thighs, abdomen, and buttocks.
  • Pain Relief Medication: Some doctors may recommend pain relief medication to treat pain caused by osteoarthritis of the spine. Some of the medicines suggested for back, and joint pain are acetaminophen or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which include ibuprofen, aspirin, and naproxen. These medications are given by mouth and are available at medical stores.
  • Corticosteroid Injection: If the pain caused by osteoarthritis of the spine doesn’t respond to medication or physical therapy, specialists may recommend an injection of corticosteroids and anesthesia directly into the affected joint area. The anesthesia temporarily reduces pain, and corticosteroids reduce inflammation, which relieves pain for weeks, months, or even a year.
  • Acupuncture: Acupuncture is a healing method in which very thin needles are inserted into various points on the surface of the body to relieve pain. By targeting specific points that correspond to the nerve pathways affected by osteoarthritis of the spine, acupuncture may stimulate healing by improving blood flow and reducing inflammation, which can reduce joint pain and improve joint function. Acupuncture also helps the body to discharge endorphins, which are natural pain relievers.
