Symptoms and Conditions

Dr. Orisek specializes in treatment of the spine. Symptoms may include, neck pain, radiating arm pain, numbness, tingling, mid-back pain, lower back pain, radiating pain in legs, and headaches. Diagnosing the exact cause of your back pain demands great expertise because there are so many possibilities. For example, your pain could be caused by an injury to the joints, the discs, the ligaments or the muscles—or a combination of these structures.

When you see Dr. Orisek, he will have you fill out a complete medical history. This history includes your general medical condition and your individual lifestyle. Specific, spine-related issues of concern include your symptoms, their onset and progression, the location and severity of the pain, what home treatments you have used, what kind of work you do, etc. Dr. Orisek will review the diagnostic tests you have already had.

Dr. Orisek diagnoses and treats a wide variety of spine conditions and injuries that may cause you pain or other symptoms. Conditions he treats include herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, kyphosis, compression fractures, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica and scoliosis. Although Dr. Orisek specializes in treatment of the spine, he is board certified with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and may see you for other conditions involving arms, elbows, hands, wrists, knees, hips, legs, ankles and feet.
