Lumbar MRI Test

Overcome Pain with the Help of a Chronic Back Pain Doctor

Pain is your body’s way of telling you that there is something bigger going on. There may be problems with the nerve endings, the curvature of your spine, and much more. John Styliaras Neurosurgeon is a chronic back pain doctor who can provide you with insight as to what’s going on.


It’s important to know why you are experiencing chronic pain. Only after knowing why you are in pain can treatment occur. Additionally, everyone’s treatment plan is going to be different because it needs to be individualized.


When you come in, there will be a full consultation to learn about your history of injuries as well as to receive a comprehensive checkup. There may also be the need to run various tests, including a lumbar CT test and a lumbar MRI test. This can provide more insight into what’s going on so that a full diagnosis can be made.


If you allow pain to rule your life, it will be all that you have left. Many people take pain medication to the point that they are dependent on it. They don’t know how much pain they are really in or where it even comes from because they simply keep taking the pills.


As a chronic back pain doctor, I want to treat the entire body. I want to find out the reason for the pain, what can be done about it, and create a custom treatment plan that allows you to move forward with your life.


Over the years, I’ve watched many patients who have allowed pain to get the best of them. They assume that they’ll always be in pain and have accepted it to the point that they have given up living.


A lumbar CT test and a lumbar MRI test can be very telling. It will make it easier to know why you’re in pain and what can be done about it.


In some instances, surgery can be the best solution. Many people get nervous when I mention spinal surgery. However, it can provide the best results and strengthen the spine. It will allow you to get rid of most or all of your pain so that you can walk, run, bend, and generally enjoy your life.


You don’t really know what your options are until the tests are done and until you talk to a doctor that deals with chronic pain patients. As a neurosurgeon with St. Luke’s, I’m here to talk to you about your options. Schedule an appointment today so that we can see what’s going on and provide you with a light at the end of the tunnel once and for all.
