Back pain is the leading cause of disability in Americans under the age of 45. Millions of Americans experience back pain every year. Back pain, the most common musculoskeletal pain, may arise from muscle, tendons, ligaments, other soft tissue, and joints, but most often has no clear identifiable cause.
Failed Back Syndrome (FBS), also called failed back surgery syndrome, may result in chronic severe pain of the back and/or legs caused by complications following back or spine surgery or during the healing process. Common symptoms of FBS are dull and aching pain in the back and/or the legs, and abnormal sensations like sharp, prickling or stabbing pain in the extremities.
We treat a range of disabling back conditions that affect the muscles, spine and nerves including back pain and FBS, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and scoliosis.
People with disabling chronic pain lasting more than three months despite surgery, medication and other treatments will benefit from our Functional Recovery Program. This program is designed to return people to work, sports and the activities of daily living while potentially eliminating the need for surgery, pain medications and frequent office visits.
