Eight of ten Americans will experience a lifestyle-altering episode of back pain at some point in their lives.

Ninety percent of single episodes of back pain become recurrent. While certain diseases and traumatic injury can cause back pain, research shows that the most common causes of back pain or injury are: poor physical condition, poor posture, improper body mechanics, and the prolonged repetitive use of incorrect bending or lifting techniques. At Atlantic Orthopedic Institute at Chilton Medical Center, preventing and providing relief for back pain and spinal disorders is one of our specialties.

Taking care of an injured spine is more than making a diagnosis. It is the skilled hands-on evaluation and appropriate diagnostic testing that determines the best overall plan of care; remembering, of course, that you are not just treating back pain, but a human being.

We apply our clinical expertise to establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient suffering from a spinal injury or back pain. It is our practice to exhaust every appropriate treatment option before considering surgery. However, when a problem is not corrected with prescribed rest, exercise, conditioning programs, or physical therapy, further diagnostic testing may be employed to precisely identify the key factors causing the patient's discomfort. If a surgical procedure becomes the right choice, our team of motion specialists is trained to effectively correct problems related to:

  • Low back pain
  • Traumatic and overuse injuries to the spine
  • Spinal deformities both acquired and congenital
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Systemic diseases affecting spinal function
  • Degenerative spinal conditions
  • Spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis
  • Herniated disc
  • Soft tissue sprains, strains, and contusions
  • Work-related back pain
  • Mechanical back dysfunction
  • Fractures, dislocations, subluxations
