The result is an unmatched quality and continuity of care trusted by hundreds of thousands of patients, including professional athletes, to get them back to the life they love.
An Expert Approach to Spine Care
Dr. Tall believes the decision to proceed with back surgery should come only after trying nonsurgical options such as stretching and strengthening daily, remaining physically active, taking over-the-counter pain relievers as needed, applying ice and heat, and waiting to see if the pain improves with time. More intensive nonsurgical options may include physical therapy, prescription medication management and spinal injections. If nonsurgical options do not alleviate pain, Dr. Tall will review and advise on next steps, possibly surgery.
Are You a Candidate for Spine Surgery?
If it becomes clear nonsurgical treatments for back pain are insufficient, you may be a candidate for spine surgery. Dr. Tall advises patients on their options and helps them decide next steps. Reasons for surgery vary but typically fall into one of three areas: realignment of a “crooked�? spine, stabilization of the spine, and relieving pressure on the nerves in the spine.
