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 Back Pain Clinic of Chatham Orthopaedic Associates we realize that most back injuries will heal with a conservative treatment approach. We have the resources to correctly diagnosis 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.
Memorial Spine is regionally recognized for its accomplishments in spine surgery. Taking a comprehensive approach to spine-related pain, the spine specialists at Memorial Spine have demonstrated their commitment to quality care, resulting in better overall outcomes for patients experiencing back pain, neck pain and degenerative spine conditions.
Dr. Dmitri Sofianos is part of the team that makes up Chatham Orthopaedic Associates, P.A. and Memorial Spine.
