Ninety percent of people in the United States will suffer from back pain during their lifetime. Back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor. There are many causes for low back pain, including a back strain/sprain, disc herniation, arthritis, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, fracture and many nonspinal causes.

Here at The Spine Institute at Chatham Orthopaedic Associates, we realize that most back injuries will heal with a conservative treatment approach. We have the resources to correctly diagnose your pain and we utilize a wide array of nonoperative modalities to treat your pain. Additionally, if conservative treatment does not alleviate the pain, there are fellowship trained spine surgeons available if surgical intervention is needed. Our goal is to see you in a timely and efficient manner and begin treatment as soon as possible in order to get you moving again.
