spine care

Taking care of an injured spine is more than making a diagnosis. It is the skilled, hands-on evaluation and appropriate diagnostic testing that determines the best overall plan of care.

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, and the prolonged repetitive use of incorrect bending or lifting techniques. At Human Motion at OLBH, preventing and providing relief for back pain and spinal disorders is a specialty.

OLBH’s clinical experts establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient suffering from a spinal injury or pain. It is OLBH’s practice to exhaust every appropriate treatment option before considering surgery. However, when a problem is not corrected with prescribed rest, exercise, conditioning programs, or physical therapy, further diagnostic testing may be employed to precisely identify the key factors causing the patient's discomfort. If a surgical procedure becomes the right choice, OLBH’s team of specialists is trained to effectively correct problems related to:

  • Traumatic and overuse injuries to the spine  

  • Spinal deformities both acquired and congenital  

  • Whiplash injuries  

  • Systemic diseases affecting spinal function  

  • Degenerative spinal conditions  

  • Spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis  

  • Herniated disc lesions  

  • Soft tissue sprains, strains and contusions  

  • Work-related back pain  

  • Mechanical back dysfunction  

  • Fractures, dislocations and subluxations
