Spine Care - SBH Health System

Spine Care

Back or neck pain strikes four out of every five people some time in their lives. Often, the pain can be debilitating and life changing.

It may be progressive; or it can happen without warning. One minute you’re playing with your children, or picking up a package. The next minute, you’re in agony. You can barely climb the stairs or get out of a chair.

Whether it’s due to a congenital problem, a deteriorating condition, or a sudden injury, you need help. Our spine care specialists offer a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to alleviating your pain and returning you to normal activities as soon as possible. We help diagnose and treat patients suffering from congenital, acute or chronic back and neck pain. This includes both high functioning athletes, as well as seniors.

We always explore conservative treatments–medication, exercise, injections, physical and occupational therapy, stress management –first. Should surgery be necessary, we emphasize minimally invasive and motion-preserving procedures based on the very latest advances in materials, modalities and technologies. The result is less scarring, less pain and less blood loss.

Low back pain
