Experts in Musculoskeletal Medicine
At Spine & Sports Physiatrists, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of the spine, joints, muscles, tendons and nerves. Our goal is to restore you to your active and healthy lifestyle as quickly as possible whether the goal is to return to sports, work, or just normal daily activity.
Many patients travel from doctor to doctor getting conflicting and confusing recommendations for their spine and joint problems. Surgeons will offer surgery, pain physicians will offer injections, chiropractors offer spinal manipulation, and other physicians offer medications. At Spine & Sports Physiatrists we consider these conditions from every angle, reducing expensive diagnostic testing and offering a cost-efficient, coordinated and diagnosis-specific treatment program. Most often our recommendation is for non-operative treatment, however sometimes operative care is most appropriate, in which case you can be assured that every treatment option has been considered prior to recommending surgery.
Because of these factors, we feel that Spine & Sports Physiatrist
should be your first choice for musculoskeletal conditions.
