Back Pain

Back Pain: Integrating a background and exam along with state-of-the-art imaging so that we can provide you with the most efficient therapy choices. First, we will speak with you regarding your symptoms, which will provide us with critical information regarding your underlying condition. We’ll then perform a physical exam, during which we’ll check for posture issues, evaluate your spine and assess your backbone. We’ll probably order imaging tests to obtain an analysis if we guess injuries, like a disk or neurological injury.

We want to treat your back pain condition efficiently as you can and as quickly – so you can eliminate the sidelines and back to your life. To that end, we’ll try to avoid operation whenever possible, and we are going to stay away from temporary Band-Aid repairs. We’ll concentrate on treating your back pain with our extensive experience in treatment. These treatments can allow the underlying damage to naturally heal while relieving the symptoms that you could make as near to a complete recovery as possible.
