Back, Spine & Neck Care

Your back, spine, and neck provide support and mobility. When pain strikes, simple activities such as twisting, bending, or turning can become painful and difficult. If you’re experiencing back pain, spine pain, or neck pain, you aren’t alone. Nearly 80% of adults have suffered from back pain at some point in their life, with back conditions and back injuries like herniated discs, scoliosis, spinal osteoarthritis, sciatica, and more.

Our priority is to get you back to living and playing, pain-free. Our Seacoast NH-based team of physicians will evaluate your condition and determine whether spine surgery or non-surgical spine care is necessary for treatment, depending on the severity of your diagnosis.

Below is a list of the most common back and spine conditions and injuries we treat, as well as the most common back and spine treatments and surgeries we offer. Contact us with questions or schedule an appointment online to have your back, neck, or spine evaluated and treated. Our offices can be reached at 603-431-1121 (Portsmouth, NH) and 207-363-3490 (York, ME).

Additional to in-person or telehealth consultations with our orthopedic back and spine providers, advanced imaging techniques help us understand the intricacies of your pain, many of which are often invisible to the naked eye. Before recommending treatment, our physicians may order any of the following for patients with back pain, spine pain, or neck pain.

  • EMG
  • MRI of the Back, Spine, or Neck
  • Ultrasound of the Back, Spine, or Neck
  • X-Ray of the Back, Spine, or Neck

Upon examination and imaging, you may be referred to other specialists within our practice who treat areas related to your back or neck pain; physical therapists or occupational therapists who can provide further functional movement evaluation and rehabilitation guidance; or, as a last effort, back and spine surgeons who can provide additional screenings and treatment recommendations.
