Treating Back & Neck Pain

The SSM Health back and spine team is committed to helping our patients find relief from their chronic back pain and improve their quality of life. With an expert understanding of the complexity of back pain and access to the most advanced technology in the region, we will work with you to create a treatment plan that helps you live life to the fullest. 

If you’ve had back or neck pain for more than two weeks, the pain is severe, or the pain is not improving with home treatment and rest, then it’s time to schedule an appointment with your SSM Health provider.

Your physician may order a series of imaging tests to help identify the source of your pain, including:

  • X-rays
  • Bone scans
  • Computerized tomography (CT scan)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Our back and spine specialists offer wide range of non-surgical and surgical treatment options. Treatment for back pain usually begins with a combination of medications, physical therapy, and occupational or lifestyle modification. For many patients, these conservative measures are enough to relieve their pain.

If these treatments are unsuccessful, surgery may be considered for certain conditions. Our surgical team provide a full range of spine care from minimally invasive procedures to complex spine surgery using some of the most advanced technologies available.

Find a provider and schedule an appointment today to learn how SSM Health can help you overcome your back and neck pain.
