Heartland Spine Center
The HMI Spine Center provides high quality, comprehensive spine care. We treat patients who need surgery and those who need care centered on improving function and relieving pain. With an experienced team dedicated to exceptional service, we focus on returning our patients to enjoy their daily activities.
Almost all of us will suffer with back or neck pain in our lifetime. Eighty percent will experience back or neck pain that will stop us from performing daily activities but only ten percent will need surgery.
While certain diseases and traumatic injury can cause back or neck pain, research shows that the most common causes are:
- poor physical condition
- poor posture
- improper body mechanics
- bending and lifting techniques
- prolonged repetitive use
At the HMI Spine Center, preventing and providing relief for back and neck pain and spinal disorders is one of our specialties. Your health-care team will work together to establish an accurate diagnosis. By developing a plan of care, we work to return you to your daily activities as quickly and safely as possible.
We provide many treatments as outpatient therapies.
Physical Therapy includes:
- body mechanics instruction
- spine strengthening exercises
- pain management with medications or spinal injections
- evaluation and treatment by one of our physiatrists, a doctor of physical medicine
If surgery is the right choice, our team of neurosurgeons and surgical staff use their training and expertise to correct the problem and get you back home the same day or within a few days, in most cases.
