Non-Surgical Spine Treatment and Diagnosis

At TOP MD in Rockville, MD, we feel strongly that not all spinal conditions require surgery. Our experienced team of orthopedic specialists offers a range of non-surgical treatment options designed to alleviate pain, promote healing, and improve your quality of life.

Here are some of the most common non-operative spinal care treatments we offer:

  • Physical therapy: Physical therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that can be highly effective in managing spinal conditions and injuries. Our physical therapists work closely with patients to develop personalized exercise programs that can reduce pain, improve mobility, and prevent further injury.
  • Medications: We may recommend certain medications to manage spinal pain and inflammation. These can include over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs, prescription pain relievers, or muscle relaxants.
  • Injections: Injections can be an effective way to deliver medication directly to the affected area, reducing pain and inflammation. We offer a range of injections, including epidural steroid injections and facet joint injections.
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy: PRP therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that uses a patient's own blood to stimulate healing. For spinal conditions, PRP injections can be used to reduce inflammation and promote tissue regeneration.

At TOP MD, we believe in taking a comprehensive approach to non-operative spinal care. Our team will work with you to diagnose your condition and develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs.
