Spine injuries are common, but the good news is that most spine injuries get better and most do not require surgery!
When you visit us at one of our three practice locations, your problem will be carefully evaluated by a physician with expertise in spine problems. Our doctors will listen to you and work with you to develop an individualized treatment program. Your treatment program may include: diagnostic workup (including imaging if necessary), physical therapy, modifying activities (at home, in the gym or at work), medications, or non-surgical interventional spine procedures (such as epidural injections, nerve blocks and other procedures). Our physicians have the training and experience to accurately diagnose your spine-related injury, and work with you to assure an optimal recovery.
Our board certified sports medicine and interventional pain physicians care for a broad range of people, ranging from kids, to high level athletes, as well as for older adults. Our focus on helping each patient achieve his/her personal best is consistent, regardless of your level of activity.
