What it is

Our comprehensive spine program is staffed by multidisciplinary health care professionals with expertise and advanced training in spine care. Our team will evaluate, diagnose and treat acute, subacute and chronic spine conditions. We will make evidence-based recommendations on how best to treat your pain and provide the right service at the right time.

What to expect

Our spine experts conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your condition, then work closely with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Whenever possible, the goal is a conservative (nonsurgical) treatment to manage your spine health. If a surgery consult or referral to one of our Allina Health partners is needed, our staff will work to coordinate your care.

The following team of experts will work with you and your primary care provider.

  • A physiatrist is a doctor with specialized training and board-certification in physical medicine and rehabilitation who will direct your spine care.
  • A spine rehabilitation physician is a primary care doctor with advanced training in caring for people with low back and neck pain.
  • A physical therapist works with exercise and manual methods to improve your ability to move and function.
  • Spine surgery is used to correct problems with the vertebrae (bones) or the disks (soft cushions) in the spine. This includes the neck, middle and lower back.
  • A doctor of chiropractic uses a hands-on approach to health care that focuses on how bone, joint and nerve problems affect general health.
  • Acupuncture, a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, stimulates the body's natural healing mechanisms and promotes well-being.

Good to know

We believe the best treatment approach to back and neck pain is one that is balanced and looks at the cause and effect of your condition as it relates to your whole self, not just your spine.  

Good for treating

Back and neck pain may be caused by any number of reasons, such as injury to a muscle or ligament. Some of the conditions we treat include:

  • acute (severe, short-term) back or neck pain
  • chronic (long-lasting, persistent) back or neck pain
  • recurring flare-ups of back or neck pain
  • neck or back pain associated with numbness or tingling involving your arms or legs
  • pain that has not been helped with standard pain treatments
  • sciatica
  • stenosis
