Conservative Treatment Options
Avoid Unnecessary Surgery.
Did you know 90% of back problems are non-surgical and a large group of patients do not even require immediate imaging? (Greenburg, 2016, p. 1024) Oftentimes, minimally invasive techniques such as physical therapy, lifestyle changes, and pain management options can be a part of a successful treatment plan. For this reason, a large majority of our patients’ first point of contact is with our pain management specialists.
