STEP ONE - Making an Accurate Diagnosis

Let us help diagnose and treat your painful condition using the latest in state-of-the-art pain management techniques. We offer a comprehensive range of treatment options for back and neck pain, ranging from conservative to aggressive non-surgical techniques.

Once a diagnosis is made, our specialists can develop a treatment plan that better acknowledges your pain. Our team typically prescribes non-opioid medication, offers customized referrals for physical therapy, and performs injections if deemed appropriate.

STEP TWO - Developing a Treatment Plan

The goal of our neck and back pain therapy team is to stay away from chronic opioid (narcotic) therapy. We use a multi-modal approach—customized physical therapy, targeted injections, and safe non-opioid medications clinically proven to be non-habit forming.

We also offer referrals for massage therapy, chiropractic care, osteopathic manipulation therapy (OMT/OMM), and acupuncture as adjuvant treatment modalities. Due to the arbitrary nature of pain, each patient undergoes a unique, individualized treatment plan. By doing so, we also focus on other comorbidities of pain such as sleep, mood, and emotional trauma.

Our physicians treat the following conditions:

  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerated discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Sciatica and radiculopathy
  • Facet joint arthritis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Thoracic pain
  • Compression fractures
  • Stress fractures
  • Arthritis of the spine
