The spinal column is the body’s main support structure – it anchors many of your key ligaments, tendons, and muscles. It enables the flexibility and mobility you need to stand upright, bend, and twist. It protects the nerve roots, which transfer messages up and down the body. However, when any of these functions are affected by a strain, injury, or disease, it can cause pain. Up to 80% of adults experience back pain at some time in their lives.
Main Line Spine experts offer comprehensive spine care services at our offices and surgery center in the greater-Philadelphia area. If there is a conservative treatment option that can help you with your spine health issues, Main Line Spine will find it.
Spine problems can be challenging to diagnose and isolate. And back and neck pain almost always trace back to the spine. Main Line Spine’s doctors and clinical team start by listening to you and using a customized diagnostic approach to try to identify the true causes of your pain and other symptoms. Our doctors then dedicate themselves to develop and carry out a plan with the optimal noninvasive or minimally invasive therapy options for you.
Why Main Line Spine for Spine Health Problems?
Main Line Spine, at its core, is a dedicated physical medicine and rehabilitation practice. If you have a spine health problem, what that means to you are three key things. First, we take a big-picture approach when considering the full spectrum of treatment options available to address each patient’s problems. We aren’t wedded to any specific medical protocol at the outset as some others may be, as our physiatry medical specialty is very broad in its scope.
Second, we focus on finding options for each patient to avoid surgery, if possible and medically prudent. And third, if we determine that other medical specialists or a surgeon are appropriate for your course of treatment, we’ll pull that effort together and manage it. However, we typically develop individualized solutions that only require office visits or minimally invasive procedures at our surgery center.
