If you’ve lived with chronic back and neck pain, you’ve probably denied yourself some of life’s simple joys. That’s why there is a Crittenton Spine Center.
Crittenton’s Spine Center is committed to improving the quality of life for their patients. They do so by recognizing that every patient is unique; that’s why the spine care team develops an individualized treatment plan that addresses the specific causes of your pain and the best methods to alleviate it, so you can regain your mobility and maintain your daily activities. “We are able to offer the full spectrum of spine services from activity modification to physical therapy to more complicated procedures with a coordinated treatment approach, determined by a multidisciplinary team of specialists. Clearly, this is the frontier of spine care,” said John LaMacchia, M.D., Othropaedic Spine Surgeon at Crittenton.
Your care begins with a thorough evaluation by spine care specialists who have the most advanced imaging technology available should an MRI or CT scan be necessary to complete your diagnosis. Once a diagnosis has been made, your spine care team will develop a treatment plan that may include non-invasive therapy as an initial first step in managing your pain. Crittenton offers a wide range of non-surgical techniques for pain management including activity modification, physical therapy and injection therapy.
When surgery is recommended, Crittenton’s Spine Center has both orthopaedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons on staff, all who are trained in the latest surgical techniques and procedures. The specially trained nurses coordinate your care and monitor your progress throughout your rehabilitation. The Crittenton team is dedicated to your personal care and committed to providing you with a better experience and the best possible outcome. Most patients are discharged two to five days after surgery and are provided with a specific Crittenton rehabilitation program that includes physical therapy, pain management and exercise.
You can be assured familiar, professional faces will surround you throughout your treatment program. This level of personal care also extends to your family and friends as they assist in making your recovery a successful one.
