Back, Neck and Spine Pain

The back, neck and spine specialists at Midwest Sports Medicine provide patients with a full range of diagnostic and orthopedic treatment services for back pain and spinal disorders: comprehensive options, innovative treatment and an established reputation for excellence. Back, neck and spine issues can sometimes be solved with physical therapy to something more complex requiring a orthopedic back surgeon. Either way, an accurate diagnosis from a spine and back specialist that cares about you as a person is a must.

Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common orthopedic problems. Six out of ten people suffer from lower back pain or upper back pain at some point in their lives. It can range from a dull, constant ache (chronic back pain) to a sudden, sharp sensation (acute back pain).

Neck Pain

Most people experience neck pain at some point in their lives. Neck pain can be acute, meaning it lasts a few hours to a few weeks or it can be chronic - lasting several weeks or longer. Sometimes neck pain can signify something serious.

The Spine

Your spine is at the center of a delicately balanced system that controls all of your body’s movements. Bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves all work together to balance the weight of your body. Even minor damage to one component of your back’s structure can upset this fragile balance and make movement painful – necessitating treatment that may include spine surgery.

After illness, injury or surgery, it's important to regain strength and get back to work, play, and the little things you enjoy doing every day – whether you’re an elite athlete, a busy mom, or an active senior.
