Vail, Colorado (PRWEB) April 28, 2015
Colorado spine surgeon Donald Corenman, MD, DC has recently launched an updated version of his popular spine education website NECKANDBACK.COM and his back pain forum ASKSPINEDOC.COM developed by eMedical Media. This website has been redesigned to help patients gain a better understanding of the anatomy of the spine, causes of neck and back pain, and conditions and treatments available today. Dr. Corenman created this website and personally answers questions in the neck and back pain forum to help patients learn about the causes of their pain so that they can advocate for their own best care.
Dr. Corenman has authored two books, “Everything You Wanted To Know About the Back” for consumers and “The Clinician’s Guidebook to Lumbar Spine Disorders: Diagnosis & Treatment” for medical professionals. Through these books and the website, patients and medical professionals can increase their knowledge of the spine to understand what can go wrong and what the treatment options are. The website begins with the anatomy of the spine and physiology (how the spine functions and why it works that way). Then, the spine pathology (what can go wrong and why it does) is discussed. The website progresses to how to diagnose the causes of back pain (the pain generator or generators) and concludes with what can be done about it (treatment for neck and back pain).
Patients searching online for insight and practical knowledge on problems associated with the neck and back will find information on common conditions such as:
- Arthritis of the Neck and Back
- Spinal Stenosis
- Herniated Disc
- Degenerative Facet Disease
- Cauda Equina Syndrome
- Spine Instability
- Sacroillac Joint Pain
- Radiculopathy (Pinched Nerve)
And less common injuries including:
- Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
- Spine Fractures and Dislocations
- Degenerative Kyphosis
Treatment options discussed on the website are both non-surgical and surgical. A patient’s history, symptoms and activity level will help determine the right course of action. Patients seeking an accurate diagnosis and treatment must visit a qualified professional in person.
Neck and back pain can be extremely debilitating and diminish quality of life, Dr. Corenman and his team are dedicated to providing excellent care to all patients suffering from neck and back pain. For patients seeking a diagnosis or second opinion, Dr. Corenman offers film reviews and consultations.
