Back pain is the worst.
Lying down? Pure misery.
Sitting up? Pure misery.
Standing? All the time? Pure misery.
And then there’s trying to actually live your life — go to work, shop and run errands, deal with your house, your yard, enjoy your family, friends and hobbies… Back pain robs you of more things than we can list here, and it’s time you can never get back.
The good news is that most back pain is truly treatable. We have multiple ways to address your back pain — without surgery, and without long-term, heavy-duty medication. Our specialties include physical therapy, chiropractic care, minimally-invasive procedures, regenerative medicine like stem-cell therapy and PRP, and acupuncture.
So if you’ve already tried to fix your back pain without success, don’t give up.
Just give us a call. You can count on us to really listen. We want to understand what you’re experiencing as thoroughly as possible. That lets us tailor sensible recommendations to your health situation, your goals, your timeline and your budget.
Then, together we’ll agree on a plan of attack. For many patients, it’s a few sessions with just one or two types of treatment. For some, it takes more visits and we might blend together several different kinds of treatment. Either way, we’re here to help you find relief, as quickly and affordably as possible.
