Spinal Enthesopathy

Most joints have ligaments that attach to the bones for movement, including the spinal joints. The enthesis is the connection point between the bones and ligaments, and enthesopathy refers to conditions that affect the enthesis. In spinal enthesopathy, or enthesitis, inflammation from spondylitis can affect the enthesis on the spine, resulting in pain and mobility issues. Our pain physicians at Medici Medical Arts can help our patients with spinal enthesopathy find relief and regain mobility at our clinics in the Atlanta area.

Spinal enthesopathy most commonly affects the cervical or lumbar spine, which are the more mobile areas of the spine. Inflammation from spondylitis, a type of spinal arthritis, is usually the cause of spinal enthesopathy and is most common in men. The symptoms depend on the area of the spine that is affected. In cervical spinal enthesopathy, patients may experience stiffness, pain and limited mobility in the neck due to stiff ligaments. In lumbar spinal enthesopathy, patients will experience the pain and limited mobility in their lower back, impacting movements like bending or lifting.

Treatment for Enthesitis

In most cases, spinal enthesopathy of the back or neck does not require surgery or invasive treatments. Reducing inflammation is a key component of reducing pain and stiffness in the ligaments and improving mobility. Anti-inflammatory injections and medication management can be effective components of a treatment plan for cervical or lumbar spinal enthesopathy. Physical therapy, including stretching and strengthening exercises, help manage stiffness and improve mobility.

If you have been diagnosed with spinal enthesopathy or are suffering from chronic back or neck pain, contact us at Medici Medical Arts at one of our locations to make your first appointment. We will schedule an exam and consultation with one of our pain specialists, They can begin a treatment plan for reducing pain and improving your mobility.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
