SpineCare is a transdisciplinary program incorporating various spine specialists, including spine surgeons, physiatrists, chiropractors, physical therapists and occupational therapists. All of the specialties work together “under one roof” in offering treatment options to address your symptoms.
The SpineCare representatives will ask you a series of questions. These questions will deal with your current symptoms and any treatment you might have received for your present condition. Our goal is to offer an appointment with the right specialist. If we determine SpineCare would not be right for you, we will direct you to a specialist we believe can offer you help.
Yes. If you are injured at work and currently working, our goal is to keep you working safely. If you are unable to work due to an injury, our goal is to help you to return to work as quickly and safely as possible.
Our chiropractors work with you to evaluate your condition and develop a treatment plan using manual therapy, exercise and education to provide relief. Chiropractic care paired with an exercised based program has been shown to provide superior outcomes.
Unless your pain is very severe, keep moving. You may continue daily activities such as showering and washing dishes, however, pace your activities. The presence of back pain doesn't necessarily mean you are harming yourself by moving. Brief periods of walking will generally reduce stiffness and soreness. Apply ice or heat for comfort, as needed. Check with your physician about seeking treatment.
We at SpineCare believe the most important aspect of your recovery will be exercise. An exercise program should be designed for your individual needs. Regular participation in your exercise program will speed your recovery and improve your health. There is no treatment that can take the place of exercise. Research suggests that regular exercise may prevent back injuries from recurring.
Most back pain lasts for a limited time and goes away without special treatment. However, if you have weakness, pain going down your arm(s) or leg(s) and/or pain lasting for more than a few weeks, you should consult a doctor.
