The DMOS Spine Center is the ideal place for patients with a variety of cervical or lumbar spine problems. These problems might include acute low back pain, chronic low back pain that needs orthopedic evaluation, upper extremity pain that could be from the cervical spine, or lower extremity pain that could be from the lumbar spine.
Types of Injuries Seen:
- Nontraumatic low back pain
- Nontraumatic neck pain
- Upper extremity pain that derives from the neck
- Upper extremity pain that derives from the back
- Work-related injuries (preauthorization required)
Patients with traumatic low back pain or neck pain who might have a fracture or dislocation are obviously more appropriate for an urgent emergency room evaluation initially.
