Avoiding Pain in the Future

You may avoid any future pain by learning to care for your back. The following are key components in preventing back and neck pain:

  • Posture — While sitting, ensure your lower back is supported, and your mattress is comfortable and supportive.

  • Lifting techniques — When lifting anything, make sure you bend at your knees and not at your waist.

  • Stretching — Stretching your back throughout the day can help increase flexibility and strengthen your back.

  • Exercise — Daily exercise will help keep your back muscles strong and protect them from injury.

Our multidisciplinary medical approach integrates experienced physicians on the medical staff with advanced technologies and pioneering research to provide innovative patient care.

We provide both surgical and non-surgical treatment for conditions that include, but are not limited to:

  • Arthritis of the spine (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid)

  • Bone spurs and overgrowths

Finding the Root of the Pain

Our specialists use advanced equipment to find the source of your pain.

Pinpointing the cause of back pain can be difficult because there are many possible causes. Our specialists use advanced equipment to find the source of your pain, including:

  • Neck X-ray

  • Thoracic spine X-ray

  • Lumbosacral spine X-ray

When indicated, patients are referred to a comprehensive pain management program that includes an evaluation and the appropriate medical, psychological, and rehabilitative services.
