Expert care to help you get back to the life you love
Your spine is one of the most important structures in your body. It gives you mobility and strength, so you can stand, walk, bend and lift. But pain in the lower back can keep you from doing the activities you love.
Eight out of 10 people will experience back or neck pain at some point in their life. It can have many causes, including:
- Injuries such as a sprain, strain or fracture
- Conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis or scoliosis
- Muscle pain
- Disk problems and degenerative disease
- Sciatica or pinched nerves
- Kyphosis (roundback of the spine)
Midwest Orthopaedic Center spine specialists offer comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of back and neck injuries, conditions and disorders. Your treatment plan is personalized for your needs.
In most cases, we start with conservative treatment. This can include medication to reduce pain, physical therapy, activity modification, guided injections and biofeedback.
Most people find relief with conservative care. But if surgery is recommended, your spine specialist will discuss your surgical options. Midwest Orthopaedic Center physicians provide surgical treatment for a wide range of spinal conditions. Midwest Orthopaedic Center is also one of the area’s only orthopedic practices offering outpatient spine surgery.
Pediatric Spine Scoliosis
Midwest Orthopaedic Center provides non-surgical and surgical treatment of pediatric scoliosis. Scoliosis is an abnormal sideways curvature and rotation of the spine. If surgery is recommended for your child, our pediatric spine specialists are experienced at treating children with all types of spinal conditions. Your doctor will explain the procedure and answer any questions you have.
