Spine Wellness Center

We believe neck and back ailments should be treated in a comprehensive, holistic way that combines traditional care options - neurological care, pain management and physical therapy – with nutritional counseling, mental health care, yoga, acupuncture, meditation and massage.

Spine care is complex, and we look at the most conservative treatment first. Our team believes that by optimizing our overall health and wellness, we can often avoid need for surgery. Sometimes, however, surgery becomes the best option. At that point, we focus on the least invasive approach, knowing that good general health improves surgical recovery.

 

  • 80%

    of the population will experience back pain at some time in their lives.

  • 16 million

    adults (8% of all adults) experience persistent or chronic back pain, and as a result are limited in certain everyday activities.

  • 264 million

    lost workdays in one year—that’s two work days for every full-time worker in the country due to back pain.
