Our specialty-trained, board-certified spine doctors at our Spine Center of Excellence at Tri-County Orthopedics are recognized and respected experts in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of spine injuries and conditions.
Spine pain can occur in the upper, middle, or lower area of the back. From herniated or bulging discs to degenerative diseases, there can be several reasons or causes for spine pain. Treatments for spine pain can vary, from physical therapy and pain management to physical medicine and rehabilitation and minimally invasive surgeries.
Patients who suffer from spine or back pain may visit their primary care physician's office, though a referral is often made to an orthopedic or spine 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 for the spine through a fellowship are often referred to as back or spine specialists and are considered experts in treating spine injuries and conditions.
If you're suffering from spine pain, it may be time to visit a spine doctor at Tri-County Orthopedics.
