Treatment for Back Pain

I didn’t know I could do what I can do now and that’s what surprised me the most. At my age and with the injuries I had, I thought I was done. The program itself was explained very well…the team did everything they had to do. Being able to sit straight up is a big deal. Being able to nod my head, twist it side-to-side—that’s a really, really big deal. I wasn’t able to do those things when I got here. – Derek Hampton, Functional Restoration Program graduate

Back pain is one of the most common issues Americans deal with on a daily basis, often keeping them from the activities they enjoy. Over 3,600 patients last year chose our spine program to establish an effective and carefully designed diagnosis and treatment plan to measurably improve their function.

Comprehensive Care Under One Roof

Our center is a national model for comprehensive care of patients with back pain. To ensure effective care, we use a team approach, involving neurosurgeons, non-surgical spine specialists, occupational medicine specialists, orthopaedists, and pain specialists. Some of the most common issues we treat are chronic pain, herniated disks, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, and spondylolisthesis.

Experience You Can Trust

We follow rigorous standards based on evidence from thousands of back surgery patients. Not everyone is a candidate for surgery; instead, we believe in offering the full set of options to get to the best outcome for your particular situation with an emphasis on measurably tracking your progress.
