Our specialty-trained, board-certified back doctors at our Spine Center of Excellence at Tri-County Orthopedics are recognized and respected experts in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of back injuries and conditions.
Almost everyone will experience back pain at some point in their lifetime. Whether it be self-induced from poor posture or lifting or be a result of a chronic condition, such as osteoarthritis, treatments for back pain can vary from conservative pain management to minimally invasive surgery.
Patients who suffer from back pain may visit their primary care physician's office, though a referral is often made to an orthopedic surgeon, who is a medical doctor trained to treat injuries and conditions of the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the entire body, or a pain management specialist or physiatrist. Specialists who undergo additional specialized training through a fellowship are often referred to as a back or spine specialist.
If you're suffering from back pain, it may be time to visit a back doctor at Tri-County Orthopedics.
