A Better Back
and Life Begin Here

Begin living a life that’s free from chronic back pain. Our experts are skilled in all of today’s latest treatments and therapies, taking a comprehensive, whole-body approach to the treatment of spinal conditions.

Many people don’t think of their back when they think of neuroscience. But your spine is a direct line to the brain, connecting to billions of neurons that control how your body functions, including how you move and experience discomfort. 

Bad posture. Long hours sitting at the computer. Strain from a sports injury. 80 percent of people in the U.S. will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Thankfully, relief is within reach. Our doctors and care team are here for you to identify, diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions and diseases with some of the most advanced technologies and treatments personalized to your needs.

Setting A New Standard For Complete Bariatric Surgery.

Compassionate Care from Our Expert Team

We care for you like family. From initial inquiry to your first appointment all the way through rehab, we are here for you. It’s all about taking time to truly understand your individual concerns and answer detailed questions. The more we learn, the better we can help.

There are a variety of treatment approaches available, including pain management, spinal cord stimulation, pain psychiatry, physical therapy, and, of course, a well-balanced exercise program. And, when surgery is needed, we offer the latest minimally invasive procedures to provide a quicker recovery — getting you back to living your best life.

Physical Therapy

In many cases, it’s possible to forgo spinal surgery and opt for physical therapy. Our skilled team of physicians, physical therapists, and care coordinators work together to evaluate your condition and create a proper treatment plan just for you. Often, physical therapy will reduce or eliminate your pain, improve strength and flexibility, and restore normal range of movement. With more than 20 Central Florida Rehab locations, we’re right around the corner from your home or place of work.

Pain Management

Your whole-person health — body, mind and spirit — is the focus of our pain management program. We believe it’s important to address not only your pain, but the lifestyle and environmental conditions that may be contributing to it. We begin with a complete diagnostic assessment in order to develop a comprehensive pain management plan that will improve the quality of your day-to-day activities and give you valuable self-management skills. Then, your physician will outline treatment options, which may range from interventional therapies to radiofrequency therapy, therapeutic injections or/and pain psychiatry.

Knees and hips. Shoulders and wrists. Feet and ankles. They’re all in good hands here. Thousands of patients just like you have changed their lives for the better thanks to innovative approaches to orthopedic treatment.
