The Comprehensive Spine Center is a dedicated facility within the Brain and Spine Institute. It focuses treating spine conditions like ruptured discs and spine fractures.
Persistent back and neck pain are two of the most common reasons people seek medical care. Moreover, they will affect eight out of 10 people at some time in their lives.
Most back pain goes away without medical treatment, though it may take time. But any time you have severe or long-lasting spine pain (more than three days), call your health care provider. In addition, you should always seek medical attention if you have back pain following an injury, like a car accident or a fall.
Many forms of non-surgical care, like medicine and physical therapy, can provide relief. Some conditions may require surgery. The Comprehensive Spine Center can help choose the best treatment for you.
