Back Pain and Spine Care
Explore your options for comprehensive back and spine care.
Back pain -- particularly low back pain -- is a common problem. Most people will have some sort of back pain at some point in their lives.
Most back or neck pain isn’t serious and will go away on its own or with rest, over-the-counter pain medications, and time. But if you have severe or persistent back or neck pain, it may be a sign of a more serious condition.
Our back pain and spine specialists care for more than 4,500 patients per year from Michigan and all over the world with all types of back and spine conditions.
