Personalized Solutions for Back Pain and Spinal Issues

Eight of ten Americans will experience a lifestyle-altering episode of back pain at some point in their lives. Ninety percent of single episodes of back pain become recurrent. While certain diseases and traumatic injury can cause back pain, research shows that the most common causes of back pain or injury are:

  • Poor physical condition
  • Poor posture
  • Improper body mechanics
  • Prolonged repetitive use of incorrect bending or lifting techniques

At the Ascension Saint Agnes Orthopedic & Spine Institute, preventing and providing relief for back pain and spinal disorders is one of our specialties. We apply our clinical expertise to establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient suffering from a spinal injury. It is our practice to exhaust every appropriate treatment option before considering spine surgery.

If surgery is required, our physicians will utilize the most minimally invasive procedures available to maximize the benefits of spine surgery with the least amount of risk and to ensure a quick and full recovery and a solution that will last a lifetime.
