About the Institute

Back Pain + Proven Solutions = The Spine Institute 

For years physicians and therapists treated back pain with a variety of options, from comfort treatments like hot packs and bed rest to traction and even surgery. Sometimes they worked. Sometimes they didn't. 

Now, research indicates that many of the therapies used in the past simply are not effective. Yet, many are still used today. 

The Spine Institute has been developed to offer evidence-based care of back problems, in other words, only treatment and therapy that have been proven to work.

  • Multidisciplinary approach 
  • Central assessment center with state-of-the-art equipment for evaluation
