Back pain is a very common, nagging, health concern for many people. In fact, 8 out of 10 Americans will experience a lifestyle-altering episode of back pain at some point in their lives and 90 percent of single episodes of back pain eventually become a regular occurrence.

How it happens.

While certain diseases or a single traumatic injury can cause back pain, research shows that the most common causes of low back pain are poor physical condition, poor posture, improper body mechanics and the prolonged repetitive use of incorrect bending or lifting techniques.  

Our spinal care team applies clinical expertise to establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits your needs.

Surgery or not?

It is our practice to exhaust every appropriate treatment option before considering back or spine surgery. However, when a problem is not corrected with rest, exercise, conditioning programs or physical therapy, a surgical procedure may be the right choice for you.

Our team of spine care specialists are trained to correct problems related to:    

  • Traumatic and overuse injuries to the spine
  • Spinal deformities both acquired and congenital
  • Systemic diseases affecting spinal function
  • Degenerative spinal conditions
  • Spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis
  • Herniated disc lesions
  • Soft tissue sprains, strains, and contusions
  • Work-related back pain
  • Mechanical back dysfunction
  • Fractures, dislocations, subluxations
  • Osteoporosis
  • Whiplash injuries
