Straightforward pain in your neck or back can sometimes be taken care of quickly.  Hopefully you'll be one of these kinds of patients!  If you have had a long history of pain and minimal success managing it, come for a consult.  A consultation is a 'no-charge' opportunity for us to find out more about your condition and for you to ask us questions.  Chronic back pain requires a more thorough history and examination.  Every patient is different in this regard, and a separate treatment plan is necessary for every individual.  X-Rays are NOT ordered for every patient.  We use our clinical judgement with regards to x-ray, MRI, and other advanced imaging.  We refer patients to the appropriate specialists when necessary and receive referrals from our patients, doctors, nurses and other professionals.
