South Florida Spine Clinic helps patients recover from their back problems in a variety of ways, each customized to the individual.
Your First Visit
Every patient we see receives a thorough consultation more extensive than industry average. In addition to a detailed hands-on physical exam, our physician team evaluates everything in great depth: your past medical history, your family’s medical history, your diagnostic results, (including ensuring that all images (MRI) are top-quality), your occupation; your lifestyle before and after your neck or back pain, your specific needs, your expectations and more.
By investing extra time upfront, we develop an accurate diagnosis that allows us to evaluate your condition and recommend the least-invasive treatment modalities possible to best fit your condition, lifestyle and needs.
You will never feel rushed at South Florida Spine Clinic. Your physician will sit with you in a relaxed, one-to-one meeting to listen to your concerns and expectations; explain treatment options; discuss the realistic outcomes you can expect; and answer all your questions. We not only make certain you have all the information you need – but most importantly that you understand everything clearly – so you can make a more confident decision about your treatment.
Your Treatment Program
Your treatment program will begin with the most conservative measures feasible. Most of our patients respond to one or more of these moderate techniques we employ, which include physical therapy and conditioning, bracing, behavior modification and therapeutic pain blocks. Medications are used as necessary to facilitate effective rehabilitation.
For a small percentage of patients who don’t respond to our conservative care, a wide range of safe, effective surgical techniques are available. The South Florida Spine Clinic’s medical staff has a reputation for consistently good results, even on the most challenging conditions.
Your Rehabilitation Plan
One of the most important components in your treatment is a progressive, well planned and executed rehabilitation program. We work closely with highly-skilled therapists to ensure the optimal techniques and modalities are prescribed to maximize functional restoration and assist you in your goal of returning to a healthy, active lifestyle. Other programs to enhance patient care include post-operative reconditioning, progressive functional restoration, and advanced training for athletics and other high-risk occupations.
