Experienced back pain specialist in London, Mr Mangattil Rajesh, takes the time to understand the underlying causes for your upper back pain. Mr Rajesh then creates a tailor-made multi-disciplinary upper back pain treatment plan specifically for you.
This upper back pain treatment plan involves one or more of the following:
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed to help relieve pain and reduce inflammation.
Muscle relaxants like diazepam are also prescribed in some cases to treat muscle spasms and ease nerve-damage pain.
Physiotherapy & Exercises:
Mr. Rajesh believes in treating most of the back pain issues through non-surgical ways such as lifestyle correction, exercises, and physiotherapy as part of his comprehensive upper back pain treatment in London.
Mr Rajesh prescribes epidural, facet joint, nerve root steroid joint injections for some cases to give immediate relief from acute upper back pain.
Spine Injections relieve pain instantly for cases where extreme pain and discomfort are debilitating. This also helps the patient heal quickly from the condition causing their upper back pain. This is a very safe and minimally invasive procedure that gives excellent pain relief for months. It also provides an opportunity for people with upper back pain to break the cycle of pain and heal completely.
Spine specialist Mr Rajesh takes a multi-disciplinary approach to upper back pain treatment in London. He believes in treating and healing his upper back pain patients without surgery in most cases.
In some instances, if there is a herniated disc that is causing pressure on your nerves after spine steroid injections, Mr Rajesh might suggest a Minimally Invasive Surgery.
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery:
Surgery is rarely indicated for upper back pain. Mr Rajesh will consider surgery only if your back pain does not settle with an adequate trial of medications, physiotherapy and spine injections. He would always suggest minimally invasive surgery for less tissue dissection & a faster recovery. Mr Mangattil Rajesh is a skilful practitioner of minimally invasive spine surgery.
Minimally invasive spine surgery helps to release pressure on the nerves caused by disc prolapse or or your nerves trapped in the spinal canal.
Some of the most common minimally invasive surgical procedures for upper back pain are:
Thoracic Microdiscectomy: It is the gold standard procedure for minimally invasive removal of herniated discs.
Thoracic Spine Decompression: This procedure is used for spinal stenosis where a piece of bone is removed from the spinal canal to release the pressure.
