Diagnosis

First, we take a medical history to assess your general health and symptoms. Next, one of our physicians complete a physical examination to determine the stability, strength and alignment of your back. Imaging is the next step to fully evaluate your spine. Diagnostic tests including X-rays, a computerized tomography (CT) scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may also be ordered.

Treatment options

If your pain is not resolved using conservative methods, surgery may be required.
