While the lumbar spine is sturdy and resilient, it is also subject to a high degree of stress and loads, which may cause various problems that result in pain. When this happens, Dr. Albano specializes in a number of different procedures that can provide the patient relief from pain.

Dr. Albano knows that surgery isn’t always the answer in treating a patient’s pain. Often, a non-surgical approach such as spinal injections can be used. While injections can’t cure a patient’s condition, injections can help relieve the  pain associted with the condition.

Conservative care for spine conditions

Patients who come to see Dr. Albano all have one thing in common.




Often, their pain can be managed through conservative measures such as physical therapy, injections, or some other type of pain management therapy, His main goal isn’t to do surgery but to get his patients back to living pain-free lives as quickly as possible. Sometimes that means a nonsurgical approach and sometimes it doesn’t.
