Pain touches each one of us at one time or another. Pain can begin for many different reasons and often is a natural response to illness or injury. Yet, as common as pain is, the medical community is just beginning to understand and better address the many forms of pain.
At the Spectrum Health Medical Group Spine & Pain Management Center we are a Priority Health Spine Center of Excellence. Our unique approach to care matches you with the most appropriate specialist who coordinates your entire treatment plan. We provide a full range of medical and surgical solutions for patients with back and neck conditions or chronic pain. Our team offers expert, comprehensive care─from diagnosis through treatment and rehabilitation─all in one convenient location.
We will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan designed to relieve pain, control symptoms, and improve daily functioning and health. Your treatment plan may include: acupuncture, counseling with our pain psychologists, interventional pain techniques, implantable devices, education, physical medicine and rehabilitation or spine surgery and medications.
Our specialists work together to give you comprehensive solutions for your back or neck pain. Upon referral, you will receive a comprehensive evaluation. Based on your unique needs, you will be matched with the specialist most qualified to coordinate your treatment plan. You will leave your appointment with a detailed treatment and care plan. By sharing your plan with your referring or primary care physician, you'll receive well-rounded, coordinated care. Your care team will meet on a regular basis to discuss your progress and make adjustments to your care plan as needed.
Most of the time, medications and other conservative treatments can greatly relieve acute pain. If you suffer from chronic pain, our multidisciplinary treatment approach can help you regain control of your life and reduce your sense of suffering. When dealing with back and neck pain, it is important to start with conservative care, such as physical therapy and medication management. If those efforts have been tried or are not enough, it may be time to carefully weigh the risks and benefits of surgery. Together, your care team will work with you to determine if surgery, or a non-surgical option, is the right treatment path.
