The Guthrie Spine Care Clinic can give you relief from pain in your neck, lower or upper back and improve your quality of life.
Guthrie’s Spine Care team will create a personalized plan to address your individual symptoms and diagnosis. Your plan may include other medical fields, such as physiatry, neurosurgery, orthopedics, chiropractic care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, pain management, neurology or bariatrics. The vast majority of patients who come to the Spine Care Clinic do not need surgery.
How are back pain and neck pain treated?
At the Guthrie Spine Care Clinic, we study your muscles and nerves through testing that helps us pinpoint the cause of your back and neck pain. We create a treatment plan that is right for you. Treatment can include injection techniques, physical therapy, medication and, sometimes, surgery.
If surgery is necessary, our neurosurgery team is specially trained and board-certified. We use minimally invasive techniques that mean a faster and safer surgery with less recovery time, including:
- Smaller skin incisions.
- Reduced risk of muscle damage.
- Reduced risk of infection and pain after surgery.
- Less rehabilitation.
Surgical treatment for spine pain or injury includes:
- Spinal instrumentation/fusion
Back pain can also be treated with chiropractic care or physiatry.
