Our orthopedic spine specialists are highly trained and experienced in addressing a variety of disorders of the spine, ranging from degenerative conditions to the aftermath of a traumatic injury, and we may be able to help you overcome your chronic back pain once and for all.
In order to determine the best course of treatment for any neck or back pain, the first step is to undergo a thorough examination by one of our orthopedic experts. We have several spine specialists on staff who will be able to review medical imagery and determine not only the cause and severity of the problem but also pinpoint the origin of your discomfort. The spinal anatomy is highly complex and even the slightest degenerative change to the neck or back can have far-reaching repercussions. As a result, it’s extremely important to have a clear understanding of your spinal health before any discussion of treatment can begin. To help pinpoint the origin of any spine problem, we also may recommend our patients undergo testing in our open MRI system – the only equipment of its kind in the community.
