Back pain has plagued us all for centuries and suspect will continue to be a problem for our community and throughout the world for years to come. There are many, many reasons that one would get pain. But how do you know if it is something that needs to be checked from a professional versus just waiting it out until it eventually gets better? That is for you to decide as most of us know our limitations and our bodies aches and pains we live with every day, but there are some things you should know before you decide not to see a professional. Please see the list below of reasons why you should be seen by a licensed professional who specializes in this area. If You Suffer From Any of These Conditions?
You should be seen by a specialist. A specialist meaning, a qualified licensed and Board Certified Professional either an Orthopedist, Neuro-Surgeon, Physical Therapist who is a DPT or a Board Certified Chiropractor who understands the skeletal biomechanics of your spine and has the tools to get you where you need to go.

POST-SPINAL SURGICAL PATIENT's If you have already had failed attempts of conservative care, or your injury or condition was bad enough that it was necessary for you to have lower spine surgery then please read on. Post-Surgical care is very, very important! The post-rehab therapy that you receive is going to make you, or break you, meaning that if you go to the wrong facility and just get the same plain-jane care that is always administered, then you are almost guaranteed for a second or third surgery. Our Clinic Director, Dr. Kelly G. Worth has over 25 years experience treating post-surgical cases and has worked with some of the top MD groups in the country. There is a specific degree of care that is needed and a "Confidence level" that is warranted in order to perform the post care properly. That only comes with experience which you will have if you choose to come to our facility. The first thing that would be needed would be all extensive surgical procedure notes and MRI and NCV/EMG reports so that we can see what procedure was performed on your spine; Microdiscectomy, Laminectomy, Fusion, a combination of any tow, etc..once we know this, than we can sit down with you and discuss the exact nature of your condition and what was performed. Even if you were already explained the circumstances of the surgery, we will go over it again with you after we take further x-rays. We will then go over all reports and films with you to discuss why you had to have the surgery and what the next step is going to be. It is important for all our patients to understand each and every detailed step in their care so they feel confident that we know what we are doing AND that they understand. Often, increased pain or discomfort is a good thing and not bad so we will educate you on the difference of the two allowing you to break through barriers that perhaps challenged you before. Not this time, we will be with you, step by step and every step of the way. With post-surgical care, it really depends on what surgical procedure you experienced. If for instance if you had performed a microdiscectomy, then we have more leniency with how aggressive we can get. The trick with this is to make sure we get movement in and around the surgical area as quickly as possible, otherwise, scar tissue will form around the nerve root and then you are finished! Scar tissue is great, when it works in your favor, however, if it isn't, it is very difficult to remove and must be removed surgically which usually is never done for fear of losing the nerve root completely that it is attached to. We use CLASS IV MEDICAL LASER THERAPY on and around the surgical region almost immediately after surgery is performed allowing the healing almost a 100% success rate and must be done 2-3 times per week. Traditional modality work is still favorable but not as aggressive as the Medical Laser. This followed by COMPUTERIZED SPINAL DECOMPRESSION and UNWEIGHING SYSTEM. We eventually will get you into the rehabilitation and Physical Therapy exercises, but not until we feel confident about the repair cycle being in place. Once this has been achieved, we continue the Computerized Spinal Decompression and then eventually couple it with Dual Techtonic Plate Vibration Therapy with Oxygen. The mistake most Doctors who may have one or two fancy tables for traction is that they are taking the load off, but then they do not place the load back on the disc to strengthen the vertebrae and the discs. There is a crucial way to do this and knowing HOW to do it and when to apply which is one of our secrets we will not display here on the site. But rest assured, you will have much stronger spine when we apply all these things and perform them accurately. If it is done wrong, it will absolutely make you feel worse, so do not trust just anyone with this kind of treatment. But what about if you had hardware put in? We can perform much of the same thing but with different variance and technique. It is crucial to be aware that with hardware set into place where there are at least 4-6 bolts and screws, the style and technique will be altered but the outcome is also very favorable. But be prepared to be in therapy for at least 4-8 months post and we will almost immediately get you on some home program. There will be active participation from our patients and is what we expect, otherwise, our reputation is tarnished because you will not get better if you do not participate and so we are particular on who we decide to treat with post-surgical candidates and will first start with a consultation and go from there. Workers Compensation and some Personal Injury care are the only sources of insurance we deal with unfortunately. We are strictly a cashed based practice. We do not accept Medicare, HMO, STATE Ins and most all PPO. Most PPO insurance does not cover this highly specialized kind of care. Our fees can be discussed upon your first visit or free consultation.
