Our double board-certified physicians are experts when it comes to diagnosing and treating lower back pain. The first step is to accurately pinpoint the source of the pain by taking a complete patient and family history, performing a thorough physical examination and completing any diagnostic tests necessary. Lower back pain can be caused by a number of conditions including a lumbar herniated disc, lumbar radiculopathy, lumbar spinal stenosis, lumbar spondylosis, discogenic pain or more. Once we have accurately determined the cause of your pain, we can recommend the most appropriate treatment to help you achieve your goals.
Upper Back Pain Relief
Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians offers a full range of cutting-edge, effective treatments to help patients get relief from their upper back pain. We are committed to using the most minimally invasive treatments available to help you find relief. However, in some cases, surgery is required to effectively treat the problem. Our surgeons are experts when it comes to performing minimally invasive, endoscopic spine surgery (also known as “band-aid back surgery"). This advanced surgical procedure offers many benefits over traditional open back surgery including minimal blood loss, a shorter recovery time and fewer complications.
