What Causes Leg Pain (Originating from the Low Back/Spine)?
Leg pain can be one of the most difficult conditions to diagnose for medical professionals who do not have an in-depth understanding of the human nervous system. Improper diagnoses may lead to treatments that provide only short-term symptom relief with long-term complications.
As a world-class neurosurgeon and leader in the field, Dr. Theofilos assesses the benefits of each treatment option to determine the long-term outcomes for his patients. Leg pain may be caused by trauma, neurological damage, degenerative conditions and a variety of other ailments. Dr. Theofilos personally takes the time to accurately determine the exact reason a person is experiencing leg pain.
What is Hip Arthritis?
The hip joint is protected by a layer of cartilage that works as a cushion between the bones. Injuries, aging and other factors may destroy or damage the cartilage, leaving a bone-to-bone point of contact. This condition is known as “hip arthritis.” Typically Coolief* Radiofrequency may be beneficial in these patients.
What are the Benefits of Working with a Neurosurgeon for Leg Pain Treatment?
Medical professionals outside of the field of neurology may recommend surgery as a primary option for treatment. As a board-certified neurosurgeon and the founder of The Spine Center, Dr. Theofilos is uniquely qualified to evaluate non-surgical, minimally invasive and surgical solutions to determine the approach providing the most value and highest quality of life to the patient.
What are My Options for Leg Pain Treatment?
Leg pain treatment options vary, based on the specific condition causing the symptoms. Rest and modifying your activities may allow the problem to resolve without treatment. Dr. Theofilos may also recommend physical therapy to strengthen the leg and hip muscles. If these options do not help with your symptoms, he may recommend injections and other conservative treatments. Surgery is reserved for more advanced cases that do not respond well to these options.
What Happens During a Consultation for Leg Pain Treatment?
Diagnosing leg pain takes time, and we allow one to three hours for each new patient consultation. Dr. Theofilos is personally involved in every case.
