The Center for Sports and Spine Care
Ninety percent of all musculoskeletal injuries do not require surgery and early intervention for any injury is crucial. With this in mind, the mission of the Center for Sports and Spine Care is to provide easy, early efficient access. Patients with acute pain will be seen within 48 hours. Your care will be coordinated by our board certified Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians who specialize in the treatment of non-surgical orthopedic and spine injuries. They work closely with multiple disciplines including Rheumatology, Neurology, Orthopedic surgeons and Neurosurgeons so that timely referrals may be initiated when appropriate.
Our Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians utilize their unique training to focus on return to function and prevention of future injuries by addressing the cause of the injury and not solely the symptoms. They will develop a comprehensive plan to manage acute pain dysfunction and prevent disability. This may include imaging studies on site, medications, an exercise program tailored to the individual and interventional spinal injections. Our physicians utilize x-ray guidance for placement of the cortisone injections at the precise point of injury. For more information call 847.657.5677 or 847.570.2066.
