Orthopedic Treatments for Back Pain

Your spine supports your body and allows you to perform nearly every movement. Unfortunately, most of us will have the shared experience of back pain at some point in our lifetime. While back pain may come and go, it is important to treat it quickly. Let our team of specialists provide a quick diagnosis and customized treatment plan to help you feel better, faster.

Request an Appointment

Your spine is designed to anchor your body, and it can withstand a great deal of pressure. However, this complex structure of bone and tissue quickly causes pain when injured. From chiropractic care, pain management, and physical therapy to complex spinal surgery, our doctors use the latest technology, techniques, and research to alleviate spine pain and get you back to what you do best.

When to See a Doctor for Back Pain

Our Forté Fast Orthopedic Care locations are open regularly for walk-in appointments in cases of sports or other sudden injuries that don’t show signs of immediate emergency.

For older injuries or pain lasting longer than a few days, including chronic pain or pain following a previous back surgery, call our office for a regular appointment. One of our trained triage specialists can make sure you see the right specialist at a location convenient to you.

Individualized Treatment Plans

Your Forté doctor can help get to the root of your pain. Using a personalized treatment plan that fits your age, activity level, and needs, your doctor makes sure you get the right treatment—whether that’s chiropractic care, pain management, back surgery or a less invasive technique. At every step, your doctor will discuss spine treatment options and personally select the best equipment, physical therapist, and plan of action to speed your recovery.
