Complete surgical and nonsurgical spine treatment

When you come to Adventist Health for spine pain, you have access to leading-edge diagnostic and treatment options. For complex spine conditions Dr. Katsuura provides expert care.

Not all spine pain requires surgery. Whenever possible, Dr. Katsuura will recommend conservative, nonsurgical treatments, including:

  • Pain and anti-inflammatory medications: We can provide oral pain medication or administer medication via injections.
  • Orthopedic rehabilitation: This includes physical therapy and occupational therapy, as well as other treatments.
  • Bracing: A brace can stabilize the joint to promote proper healing.
  • Rest/ice/compression/elevation: Also called RICE, this simple at-home treatment can reduce inflammation and pain.
  • Alternative treatments: Chiropractic care or acupuncture can be used to alleviate pain.
