Center for Spine Care
Our orthopedic spine specialists emphasize conservative treatment of your spine problems; surgery is available as the last option. In fact, the large majority of our patients receive conservative treatment to help cure their back problems—more than 95% of our patients are treated without the need for surgery.
Most of us experience bouts of back or neck pain at some point. Many times the pain is due to an injury; at other times, it may be due to degeneration or arthritis of the spine.
Most back and neck problems resolve within a short period of time by limiting activities and taking over-the-counter pain and anti-inflammatory medications. If your pain becomes severe or lasts longer than a week or two, you should be evaluated by a physician.
OIP has a team of physicians and assistants who can evaluate and assist with spine problems. We thoroughly evaluate our spine patients to best diagnose the source of their pain. Digital X-rays, MRIs, CAT scans, and EMGs are some of the tools we use to assist us in making a diagnosis.
